"Where did my baby go?": the question that fuels the rage.....

The interesting thing about all the rage that Elly feels is that we're about to see one of the chief causes of her totally losing her shit over something that doesn't matter to most people; that's because we're about to see Lizzie enter the Terrible Twos. Instead of simply frowning in mild irritation because yet another child has started to test the limits of her parents' tolerance and vaguely wishing that she could do more to make things right with her own mother for being much the same sort of a pain in the neck, Elly totally freaks out because she never saw this sort of thing coming despite having gone through the same thing with Mike. What fuels the blind rage she doesn't really suppress that well seems, at least to me, to be the result of her not being able to relate to children all that well; after all, it's not as if Lizzie knows what Elly expects of her what with her having just got here. You can't tell Elly that, though; Mommy Foobest spends her days whinging about the strong 'won't' her children have without stopping to consider the fact that it isn't personal.
