Calling the Elephants

Some of you have asked what "calling the elephants" means...Close your eyes, and imagine what noise an elephant makes. Now make that noise. No, really. You'll understand better.

Now imagine your children being noisily exasperated about something they don't want to do.

The noises are one and the same, so I tell them to stop calling the elephants. We don't have enough room. Make sense?


  1. Ah well.
    I'm Mexi so I just made up my own meaning ;)

    (yours makes more sense)

  2. calling the elephants: what a perfect name for that awful exasperated "why do i always have to do all the work around here" moan/whine/groan. it's perfect.
