Deep thoughts

"Litter isn't good for the Earth, at all."

Oh, more installments of Ella's thoughts on life...

We were playing ice cream parlor in the pop-up camper parked in the driveway. Ella was taking it VERY seriously. She said to be, concerned: "This customer is asking for tree ice cream and I don't know how to make that. Plus I think he is allergic so I'm going to give him black cherry instead."

"Momma, close the door so Brady can't see my privacy."

"I know some things, but not all things."

"Just think, if you had two hands, you could do everything!" (To me, at the bewitching hour of 5 p.m. when I was flying solo.)

"I'm the stage manager and she is the funny maker." (Who do you imagine she means?)

"Isn't it delightful in here!" (the pop-up camper)

"Oh, I am just thrilled!" (again the pop-up)

"You know, Brady, this dress isn't as twirly as you think it is."

"Mommy, why do you just have your boobs on?" (To Sandi who was sunbathing in her bra and skirt.)

"Maybe we shouldn't go into the woods because I am going to have to wear something pretty..."

"Mom, I have to tell you something incredible."

"Oh look! Maya is sitting like a real person!"

We were walking holding hands, heading into the hospital to have lunch with Sandi and I said to Ella, "I'm the luckiest woman in the world because I'm your mom."

She replied, "I'm the luckiest girl in the world."

Fishing a bit, I asked, "Why is that?"

"Because I'm not a mom," she answered mirthlessly.

Lainey calls bras boobs too. I correct her repeatedly... she still forgets that the boobs are what are in the bra.

And feeling lucky that she's not a mom! ha! She just sees all the hard work that goes into it... you should feel honored that she's so observant. She must appreciate all that you do for her. Very smart little girl!

No, she's not making it up. I've seen her jotting it down and stuffing it into her purse for later blogging....

The boob comment is my fave! She'll love that one re-told as she gets older.....

i guess in some fashion that means she knows the trials you face as a mother, someday she will realize that it is worth every single second of it. you are a very lucky lady!
