Okay, a LITTLE drama. Not that dramatic, but I like to think a lot is being said without being said.
I'm not entirely sure why I decided early on that Elliot was unexpected and that his mother was still in college when she had him, but I did, and it's stuck. Granted, I'm not sure why it wouldn't remain canon, or how I'd explain away her thoughts if I ever tried to retcon it. I'm even trying to think of something to suggest as a joke and I'm drawing a blank.
I think I'd have to pull a Lucas and change her thoughts to "well, it's not like last time when I was all married and done with college and had Elliot just as we'd been planning, but Ellen's pretty rad," or something,
