I wish; what it is another example of failed parenting with a thought-bubbled Aesop that highlights the fact that Elly doesn't learn lessons.
Panel 1: We see Lizzie in her pink overalls heading towards the dishwasher.
Panel 2: Since Elly and John are stupid and useless, there's no safety latch preventing her from opening the knife drawer.
Panel 3: Since Elly is too busy watching her stories/doing laundry/feeling sorry for herself, Lizzie pulls out a whisk and measuring spoon.
Panel 4: She follows this by pulling out a colander, a spatula and cheese grater.
Panel 5: She starts banging on a mixing bowl with a wooden spoon.
Panel 6: She starts in to get more 'toys'.....
Panel 7: ...when she somehow slides forward on her socks and slams the drawer shut on her fingers.
Panel 8: Her screams of pain finally get her imbecile mother's anguished attention.
Panel 9: As she tries to figure out how this could have happened, Elly tries to console her child.
Panel 10: As the nurse at the outpatients' bandages Lizzie's fingers, Elly thought-bubbles "Dear God, the next time something bad happens, let it happen to me."
Summary: Too bad that Elly doesn't learn from her mistakes because she doesn't know what they are; otherwise, she might have really childproofed her environment. She could start with that back gate leading to the ravine. Also, since people care more about Elly's high-minded talk about wanting to absorb injury in her children's stead than the fact that her inattention allows said injuries to happen, we'll get a lot of positive feedback on this next week.
