No, Ellie is whining about a job that she herself chose to accept. Fact is that kids make messes. While they learn to clean them up themselves as they get older, it doesnt’ change the fact that raising kids is a lot of work and that one can’t spend all one’s time doing what one wants to do. Getting bent out of shape about the realities of life doesn’t help anyone. Ellie is very much acting like a kid who doesn’t get her way.
