the big choice

Announcement everyone... the girls slept until 7 a.m. Hallela-freakin-lujah.

Ella and Brady are getting eggs which will hatch into chicks (hopefully) at preschool and Ella couldn't be more excited about it. She tells me how they need to be in the inkybator or binkybator (incubator) in order to hatch. I think she believes, despite my corrections, that we are bringing one home. Help me.

But here is the real kicker. Last night, Ella was at the kitchen table eating when she noticed a man walking down the street with his dog.

"I wonder if he has a partner," she muses. "I bet he has a girl partner."

Okay.

"Some people have girl partners and some people have boy partners." Discussion ensues and observations made about the couples in our lives.

Then I ask, "Ella when you grow up do you think you'll have a girl partner or a boy partner?" I'm purely curious to see where her trajectory of thought.

"A girl partner. No, I would like a boy." Then, with complete earnestness, "But how would I get a boy?"

No worries, love. I think Brady Smith would sign up without a second thought...

Do you Brady, take thee Gabriella? umm, yeah, I'm guessing that would be a big fat YES!

How cute was the goodbye hug yesterday initiated by Ella?

God they are cute.

Do you think we could setup an arranged marriage and keep them innocent until 25 or so?
