The interesting thing about the month of March 1988 is that it's dominated by Lizzie losing one of her baby teeth. We have the usual stupid hijinks from Mike, the predictable conclusion in which Elly wishes that her children would stop all of this aging nonsense until she's ready to deal with them and, of course, Lizzie doing something stupid that makes Elly's life a bit harder than it would otherwise be. Said dumb thing is swallowing her tooth by mistake because she wants to actually meet the tooth fairy despite Elly's trying really hard to get her to do things normally so that sh....the tooth fairy doesn't want to go on a bloody expedition.

This leads to a repetition of an old theme: Elly and John never seem to want to admit to themselves that the accident-prone dullards they raise aren't doing all the stupid things they do on purpose. Just as next year, we will be reminded that Elly can't understand that her unfailing habit of yelling at her children for messing up and never offering anything like reassurance is why Lizzie is afraid of her, the deluded donkey wants to think terrible things about small children because she's a child herself really. It's not that Lizzie is a little kid doing a dumb thing for a little kid reason; it's that Lizzie is an evil monster who hates her pooooooooor mother and wants to make her life hard because otherwise, Mommy is making her life worse by being pointlessly upset like her evil mommy says.
