More from Ella...

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, 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?"
Me: "Go."
Ella: "How do you say it in Spanish?"
Me: "Vamanos."
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."
