A mother with a baby in her lap asks, “How do you like daycare all day, Cindy?” Bubbles show the child’s thought: “It’s just miserable. Do you have any idea how long eight hours is to a one-year-old? Where’s my emotional bonding? Where’s my continuity? I’m spending the most important time of my life surrounded by little maniacs!” The Dad walks in and says: “We think daycare will really help Cindy develop her verbal skills.” The baby thinks, ”By the time I can talk, it will be too late.”
