This is not a direct true story, thankfully, but I think it points out that the behaviors we dislike seeing in our children are often just a reflection of what we ourselves are doing, even if we don’t realize (or want to acknowledge) it.  Do as I say, not as I do!

On an overly self-critical note: what’s up with that arm in panel two?  I think that might be the worst appendage I’ve ever drawn in the strip.  Good grief.

This is a very condensed version of how we spent one recent weekend.

The prom is nerve-wrecking, of course your stomach has butterflies.

You can’t miss your first day of work because you ate a bad yogurt.

Hmmm, maybe three days is a little long for an upset stomach to keep getting worse.

The original sketch for this cartoon was done on a hospital paper towel during her week long stay there.  It’s not my proudest moment as a parent, but I guess it could have turned out a heck of a lot worse so I’ll take it.

The final panel is a nod to one of my favorite TV shows, “Arrested Development.”
