Harridan VI: Meet The Monster Hunter.

The irritating thing is that when people say that Elly has forgotten what it's like to be a kid, they're only half right. This is because what she remembers, she always gets wrong. This is sort of spelled out to us in a recent Lynn's Comment in which she chortled about how she thought she got away with something but actually didn't. What escapes her is that her mother wasn't saying "No makeup EVER!" but actually "Clown isn't a theme."

This tells us that Elly herself thought she was a far more dangerous child than she actually was and didn't realize that she wasn't getting away with things because she did nothing. What she sees her non-antics reflected back at her by her dell children, she wants to stop them from being the rebel she wasn't.
