The second-to-last strip in the arc has Elly tell Michael that throwing birthday parties is very hard on mothers. To prove it, Lynn has notes that back that up.

(Strip Number 597, Original Publication Date, 20 April 1984)

Panel 1: After all the fun ends, Michael looks out of the living room window and laments that all of his friends have left and that his party all over.

Panel 2: He asks Elly why birthday parties are so short.

Panel 3: As we zoom out to see an exhausted Elly in an exaggerated scene of CHAOS, she tells him it's so the mothers who throw them can live longer.

Summary: The odd thing is that every time Elly does throw a party, she ends up looking as if she's about to die of exhaustion. Since we never see police or fire officials showing up to break things up, I should think that we're dealing with a woman who'd dissolve into a puddle if her clothes weren't holding her together.
