Lynn's Comments: Like many little girls, Katie had a pile of Barbie dolls, clothes, and paraphernalia. Her tantrums (which were rare) weren't about wearing pretty things, however, she just wanted to be comfortable. It was I who wanted her to look pretty!
Lynn's Comments: Yes, this happened--and with all the theatrical sarcasm seen here. This was what made our marriage so much fun. We were both able to laugh and make jokes out of just about anything.
Lynn's Comments: The other day, I discovered a tiny dress in the back of my closet. My daughter, Katie, had worn it in the Lynn Lake United Church Easter parade, and I still had it! There was a matching bag and hat. I showed them to Kate and said, "Can you remember being this small?" Having a three year old now herself, made the dress and accessories even more interesting. I'm hoping she keeps some of her children's favourite clothes because photographs can't show the actual size the child was. Holding the small dress was like touching my little Katie again! Sorry, I won't apologize for being sentimental. That's what moms do!
Lynn's Comments: Another glimpse into our actual lives. Word for word, some of our exchanges made it into the strip.
