The latter, sadly.
Panel 1: We continue where we left off as Connie tells Elly that she can baby-sit her grandkids without getting swamped by the simple expedient of setting limits.
Panel 2: After all, she's gotta have time for herself because she's pretty much done with being a parent. One year to go and she's served out her time.
Panel 3: She finishes off by telling her to let her kids find their own sitters and only step in in an emergency. Elly is horrified.
Panel 4: That's because it would mean leaving her babies with strangers. Or, in English instead of Foob, she couldn't get all that hot martyrdom action.
Summary: Connie is friends with a crazy person.
