    Neither do I, thankfully! And, I don’t usually question intelligent-parenting, and that this is a strip, but, WTH was Ellie thinking leaving those things on the floor, when she has small children and a dog?

    I was painting some props in the back yard. Had newspapers spread out to protect the grass. Splotches of wet paint all over them.
    .
    The next-door cat came over.
    .
    Next thing I know he’s right up to me, having walked over the paint. Painted paws.

    I normally defend Ellie from the hateEllie group, but I have to agree with you. What was she thinking?? She has an older child, didn’t she learn from him of what to expect from a young child?

    Toddlers, paint and walls: One of the strongest forces in the Universe!

    She left them on the floor? That was dumb.

    and thus we remember the phrase “Keep Out of the Reach of Children” no longer applies to just medication. Especially with a toddler in the house!

    She still should’ve had enough sense to put them in another room and close the door on Lizzie and the dog.

    I have kids and grandkids. I can laugh at it too, BECAUSE I have kids and grandkids.

    Susan, don’t project what isn’t there. The comic strip ends with a punch line. Elly isn’t real. She cannot do what Lynn has not written.

    the only person she should yell at is herself

    Oh fer cryin’ out loud, all parents would be perfect if they just followed the advice here, especially from the people who don’t have any kids. Scratch that, all *mothers"….

    And again, you have a way of projecting your mother’s mistakes on to Elly.

    Hmmm, no backyard with a clothsline? or if yes, was the weather too bad for outside drying of posters? In my utility room, I have a place to hang clothes on clothes-racks before they go into their individual closets.
    .
    so, clothes-racks with clothes-pins to hold the posters up.

    I quickly trained my kids that my models were my toys and they wouldn’t want me to break their toys playing with them. Never had a problem, but the daughter became a good modeler and model judge herself.
