More recent Ellie stories, taken from Facebook.
Sweet ellie. I came home from tutoring and got everyone ready for bed and was dealing with a screaming Caroline when ellie pointed out "Mommy! You forgot to eat your dinner!" True story. So she walked me to the kitchen so I could eat.
Ellie just described a mushroom as "nasty" and I can't help but feel like my five year old is using timely insults. Next she'll be calling Caroline a puppet.
Ellie for the win. Caroline woke up screaming. Gave her a bottle. Snuggled her. Tried everything. Was getting waffles for the girls while Caroline cried some more and Ellie said "she wants a squeezie." And Caroline has been happy ever since.
