Look! A Parenting Comic!
    I think this is only the second or third parenting comic strip I've ever done. I bring Ren up to bat whenever there's something about parenthood, husbandhood, or siblinghood (he's Rianne's brother) to talk about. It's nice to have a wide range of characters to depict every aspect of me. I can talk about pretty much anything I want on the comic nowadays.
    Anyways, something similar happened to me and my daughter. She is (or was?) a huge fan of Sesame Street's Elmo (not-so-subtly parodied in the above comic strip). Then I took her to ride an Elmo-themed ride at a theme park. Prior to that point Elmo was a being of pure joy to her. Once she saw the animatronic Elmo during the ride she became terrified of him. Sigh.
    She still enjoys seeing Elmo dance and sing on TV but like many things to a two-year-old, these obsessions come and go.
