Ella has been saying some funny and interesting things the last couple of days. For example, she asked me if I knew why the earthquake people were giving us all their children. She then explained that it was because we had given them food and money and toys. I really don't know why she thought that this was an even trade.
Today, Olivia was in her jumper and she was jumping, hmmm shall we say vigorously, I said, "your going to town girl", to which Ella replied "I think she's going out of town, like to Kentucky".
And finally, on Thursdays I go to her school to listen to the kids read, play games with them and test them (I got the honor of testing 30+ kids on counting to 100 by 10's, 5's and 1's a few weeks ago...mind numbing). Anyway, today they had picked out books to read to me. I was told that if they didn't make a mistake they could get treasure box and that everyone else could pick a piece of candy. Ella's book was called Musical Adventure. When I saw the title I knew she would not be getting treasure box (she got the Music part but not Musical or Adventure). She read the rest of the book perfectly. I told her that she had made a mistake so she couldn't get treasure box. She looked up at me and said, "but I am your daughter". She really thought that since I was her mom I would let her get treasure box. She was very disappointed when I pointed her toward the candy bucket.
On another note, I am learning through this blog that I am not a very good writer. I guess that nothing I could write would be as great as pictures of these two faces.
Don't you agree?
