We end the arc Elly hoping Ugly Duckling Lizzie doesn't become a swan too soon.

(Strip Number 1272, Original Publication Date, 26 March 1988)

Panel 1: A few hours later, Elly looks at Lizzie and thought-bubbles that there is her little one with a seven year old's gap-toothed smile.

Panel 2: She then reminds us that she married a dentist when she refers to this as the ugly duckling phase.

Panel 3: As she looks Lizzie in the face, she thought-bubbles "But, oh, Elizabeth.."

Panel 4: She then hugs her daughter and hopes that she doesn't become a swan too soon.

Summary: Elly is haunted by the image of her children growing up overnight before she can catch up. The problem is that she wasted most of their childhoods either panicking or screeching in rage over not a hell of a lot.
