In today's strip, Elly is confused by the fact that Lizzie doesn't know how long it takes flowers to grow.

(Strip Number 836, Original Publication Date, 19 April 1985)

Panel 1: Elly tells Lizzie that if she wants flowers to grow, she has to plant a seed or bulb first.

Panel 2: Having put a daffodil bulb in a pot for her, Elly tells Lizzie that they'll add some water and wait for it to grow.

Panel 3: Lizzie looks at the pot in blank-eyed consternation.

Panel 4: When she tells Mommy that nothin's happenin'yet, Elly just stands there looking mildly confused.

Summary: This is because Mommy thought that she didn't have to tell Lizzie it would take a while. Also, Mommy tends to not remember that her children experience time as crawling along sloooooooooooooooooooooooooooowly and thus is always surprised by how they don't realize how quickly time zips by.
