So here's the current debate in our house.
Is Garfield detrimental to the mental health and stability of our son?
He loves...nay, is obsessed, with Garfield, and reads it all the time; in the car, in his room, at church if we would let him. (Which we don't) (Anymore) (After he laughed out loud during communion.) (We are bad parents.)
Art is afraid that his emotional development is being stunted, if not injured, by the influence of the fat, lazy, selfish orange cat that we all know and love. I think if he wasn't wandering around thinking about Garfield, it would probably be something else. I also don't know how we could give him all these Garfield books (They were ours long ago) and then take them away suddenly. He would be absolutely heartbroken.
What do you think, oh loved ones and random blog viewers? Should we de-cat our home, or is he just being a typical little boy?
