I'm slacking again. I know. I suck.
Lately, when the kids say something funny, I will run to my laptop, and open a new Post-It note on my screen, and type whatever it is that they said. This is the easiest way for me to remember, because, well....my laptop is always open and on. (I have a slight addiction to Facebook. But really, who doesn't?)
So, here's a few of the humorous lines from Ella.
*It's morning, and I've already been woken up by Grayson crawling into my bed. I am trying to go back to sleep, and I hear the pitter-patter of little feet in the hallway. It's Ella.
"Good morning!" she says very loudly.
"Wow," I say. "You sure are perky this morning."
"I was born to be perky," she says.
*I was forced to move our couch to a different spot in the living room, to keep the kids from climbing on it and using it as a ladder to get onto the kitchen table. I asked Ella, "What do you think Daddy will say about where I moved the couch?"
"What the Hell?" she replies.
*When deciding who should read a book to her, Brady or me, Ella says, "You're both really great and I love you. I don't want any of you to be sad that you didn't get to read me a book. So I vote for....Mama."
*Ella: "How do you say, 'go,' in English?"
Ella: "How do you say it in Spanish?"
Ella: "No, that means, 'let's go'."
I just stare at her for a few seconds.
*I overhear Ella and Grayson talking in my bedroom, while they are watching cartoons.
Ella says to Grayson, "The barber is where you get a haircut. Oh, and you get to play dominoes."
