Answer:  SLEEP LIKE A BABY

(Dads are kinda big babies, anyway.  Moms are much tougher!  No new clue words today.  And, only “leywol” has been used as a jumble before.  All the rest of them came up as new.  The answer letter layout is another well-crafted jumble.  Nothing obvious there.  And, the cartoon sets it all up very nicely.  I allowed my daughter to do today’s Jumble.  I only had to give her clues to “cactus”.  But, she got the other five words and the answer, all on her own.  I should have asked her to post this spoiler!  That’s the hard part.  Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there!  And, please remember all of the dads who have already passed.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Belated Happy Father’s Day, UR! I got the words instantly, but the final answer took some time. I was thinking something along the lines of TAKE IT EASY but couldn’t get anything sensible. It was obvious that the third word was A but nothing else really stood out. Finally, I figured that the first word was SLEEP. Then, it occurred to me that one of the words was BABY. The answer then followed.
