As the new month begins and the old week comes to an end, it seems to me that we're in for either another example of Elly sucking as a parent or John being a doughhead. What we aren't going to see is anything that tells us that family life isn't a soul-crushing vortex of despair everyone has to enjoy.

And it's Elly being pointlessly negative again.

Panel 1: We start off with Elly trying to potty train Lizzie; she holds the potty up so Liz can see it and cajoles her daughter thusly: "Nizzie sit on poe? Nice poe-poe. Nizzie sit on pottie."

Panel 2: Her chirpy "Pottie GOOOD! Nizzie big girl! Big Girls sittum on poe." does nothing to encourage Liz, who looks apprehensive, to use the thing Mommy just put on the floor.

Panel 3: Elly disgustedly thought-bubbles "For this I majored in English." as Liz stares into the potty.

Summary: Elly does not seem to see that her gibberish and angry sighing are going to discourage Lizzie from approaching, let alone using, the object she's waving in the air. Once again, Elly's negativity and ineptitude make her life harder.

ETA: The new month has brought us a new, kid's book related banner.
