The one with the sight gag about babies nursing only on the one side.

(Original Publication Date, 31 May 1991)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly nursing April when something 'goes wrong': April is starting to doze off.

Panel 2: In order to avoid something awkward-looking and feeling, we find Elly trying to tell April to wake up because she can't go to sleep in mid-feeding.

Panel 3: Since she lost that 'battle', Elly looks mortally wounded when she puts April in her crib.

Panel 4: We notice that Elly's left breast is still swollen with milk as she mutters to herself about how she hates it when they only nurse on one side.

Summary: April isn't doing it on purpose because she's a month old. She has no idea what's going on around her and only knows that she's full and she's sleepy. Elly would rather not admit this because she has a lot in common with her kids....as we'll see tomorrow.
