Groan. Episode 361 in the "Mira Bad" saga.

Now, I admit that she's a bit impractical, telling Merrie that her beach outfit shouldn't get dirty. I mean, that's what play clothes are FOR. But other than that, what IS so terrible about getting her a cute ensemble? You can get clothes for a kid that age for practically nothing. And if Deanna finds it to be such an ordeal to spend a day with her mom, then why does she keep doing it? And why the panic in the last panel? This appears to be a fairly secluded beach; it's not like she ran out of the apartment naked or something. And what's up with Merrie's nose in the penultimate panel? That's not even a potato; that's a mushroom cap!
