No wonder she thought it was “stupidly impossible”!
And I’ll bet your husband usually backed you up once he found out what the kids had done that got your goat, right? Especially once you went back to work. There’s a reason that mothers used to tell their misbehaving kids “Just wait until your father gets home!”
That’s why it was nice to see John backing Elly up when Michael tried to leave the house in direct defiance of her order to stay in. John’s stink-eye and “Just where do you think YOU’RE going?” look were priceless!
Well, I wasn’t going to go there, but if the muzzle fits, Donnie boy… .
Oh, that’s not at all uncommon. It’s the best way to make sure that Junior doesn’t suddenly go taking off to who-knows-where in public!
Oh, I didn’t forget the butter — that’s a given for bread that’s still warm from the oven!

I personally thought it was a missed opportunity to end the strip just as Cathy announced her pregnancy. I thought it would have been fun to continue through Cathy’s pregnancy and delivery and end with the baby’s birth. Can you imagine nine months of a hormonal Cathy? You think she’s nuts now… .
