    I love the analogy. It is beautiful. Today the elephant roared in the morning but I pushed it back into its corner

    A few years ago we had a neighbour who took in all sorts of animals into her house. Drove our dogs crazy.
    My DH said once "She'll even take in a baby elephant if she found one."

    Ironic that we ended up with the elephant.:rolleyes:

    Great analogy.

    Well the elephant stormed all over the living room tonight and made an awful mess on the rug:mad:

    I hit a bad spot on Stevens bum while giving him lantus. He cried, i apologised and promised to do better tomorrow then went in the bathroom and cried as if my heart were broken. Tomorrows another day and we have some fun things planned. That elephant will get smacked back into that corner in the morning while we go out and have some fun!

    I completely understand Becky!!:eek: Kick that elephant to the corner!:cool: Tomarrow will be a better day. It has happens to us all the time, i wish there was something i can beat up just to let out the frustration of dealing with D. My son tells me he is tired of d. We need a cure soon!! have a good day tomarrow. :D

    Becky, that is absolutely brilliant. Never thought my house would be big enough for an elephant, but we manage to squeeze one in. Just wish he wasn't here for the duration.:(

    I just wanted to add that I appreciate the post too..and can appreciate the Lantus tears. Molly would cry every night when it was time for Lantus. It's just not fair these kids have to go through this. :(

    That is so well written. I couldn't describe it better if I wanted to.

    We try hard to keep our quietly in the corner.;)
