Meet THEM from There

As you might have figured out by now, Elly yearns for her mother's public approval almost as much as she fears her disapproval. Everything she does and the way she does it seems be in the hope of somehow forcing the old doll to admit that she's glad she had a daughter first. What Elly fails to realize is that while she has no problem telling the two people she calls friends that if she was to be overly generous with the praise, the kiddies would use that as an excuse to plunk their rumps down and die in a puddle of their own filth because Mommy Looooves Me So I Don't Gotta Do Nothin', the reason her mother liked to tell her how big a disappointment she was happened to actually be trying to help.

The reason that I mention this is that as Elly grew older, she started seeing everyone older and of higher status as being a mother figure that she had to reassure. It's why she tried to force an easily frightened child out of her safe zone. It's why she sweeps porches. It's why she thinks that her job as a mother is to say no to what kids want. Everything she does is to gain the approval of women who don't expect anything of her and wonder who she's trying to impress and/or fool.
