    Betcha Dawn’s parents would stop such behavior before it even started. Asian parents are very STRICT disciplinarians!

    This is how Elly normally is, so I wonder why Dawn thinks it is unusual.

    At least the Patterson‘s have a family farm that they can dump their kids at every summer.

    Moodiness is sometimes contagious. And sometimes it’s hereditary.

    That was my daughter at 15 – we all survived. Sometimes I wonder how.

    Ah yes, the only way to communicate with teenagers and idiots is to speak their language.

    Once, when I was in a mood like that at work, my friend/coworker dropped a package of midol on my desk. It made me laugh! It also worked. :)

    As a man I did experience a form of menopause. Wife would get hot and throw all the covers on top of me. Then she would get cold and take ALL of them beck. Repeat all night. I did not sleep well for years.

    That’s moody? I thought moody was sullen and quiet.

    Elizabeth’s hair looks funny, and Dawn got a butch bowl cut. Now all they need is someone to shave their head, and they are the Three Stooges.

    Lynn Johnston has said that while Elly is patterned after her, in thiis case, it’s Elizabeth. She said “My daughter doesn’t go around slamming doors, but when I was her age, I did!”

    If there was an Olympics for moodiest mom, who would win? Imagine Elly taking on Marge Simpson, Shiela Brovlovski, Andrea Fox and Lois Griffin.

    Disqualified: The mom from Calvin & Hobbes. You need to give your name to register for an event.
