you’re a smart girl, April
Elle forgot a key detail… Little kids have big ears.
If Liz heard, April heard it too. What surprises me is April understanding what her mom is saying.
Can’t make out the second word on that cereal box.
Does it say “Health Bloc”??
I know that sometimes this comic draws people in really unflattering positions, but what reason does Liz have in panel 3 for that really disgusting pink snot ball coming out of her nose?
One would think that April would be raring to go to daycare to see Becky.
April is not as fooled as you think she is.
Never underestimate the intelligence and perceptiveness of a young child! Their little brains are learning at warp speed.
April comprehends things quickly.
I hid from the babysitter once. Of course, I was at the neighbor’s house, so it wasn’t much of an escape, but it was kind of exciting.
What’s Elly squinting at in the first panel?
Kid’s not dumb, just young :D
She also grew a foot when you weren’t looking.
THE FINISHING TOUCH—1928—silent Laurel&Hardy house building comedy/.Look for it on You Tube.
What’s the matter with kids today?
Barney had a habit of doing that when it was time to get him into his carrier for a vet appointment.
After I’d called the clinic to cancel and reschedule, he’d mysteriously reappear.
It is a really bad idea to sneak out without telling the kid you are leaving. If you are trying to frighten the kid, that is a good way to do it.
April is the perfect combination of all the Pattersons:
Michael’s intelligence, John’s creativity, Liz’s kindness…
And absolutely NONE of Elly!
Speaking as a day (grandparent) home provider: parent should leave something a kid recognizes as important to parent. Just the first couple of times. an object, hat, coat, stuffy … is good. (kid just needs to recognize it as important to parent.) and please just leave, if you linger kid plays on your insecurity. (5 minutes, or less, kid will be too involved with toys or an activity to care if parent is there.)
