Quote of the day

Daddy: Ella, how do you like your oatmeal?
Ella: It tastes like garbage.

Mommy: You have a choice, Ella. You can eat 4 more bites of your dinner, or you don't get a snack before dinner tomorrow.
Ella: Snack.
Mommy: You're sure? You're full?
Ella: Yep.
Mommy: You're excused from the table.
Ella: (walking away) I wish I had a marshmellow.


Mikana is an adorable neighbor girl who plays with Ella all the time. THANK HEAVEN!! It's SO nice for Ella to have a friend in the neighborhood that is kind and sweet (ie NOT a mean girl). She is a first-grader, but has no problem hangin' out with my 4-year-old. The two can be seen sitting in the wagon, running through the sprinkler, eating popcicles, or even zooming around the fence to retrieve the ball that was kicked over (I think they do this on purpose).
