Ellen Chatter


toe jam, anyone?


Ellen loves to interact with the tv shows she watches.
Daniel Tiger: Can you say “friendship?”
Ellen: Friendship!

Dora: Can you say, “Ven conmigo?”
Ellen: Um, no.

Talking to my mom early one morning:
“Mommy tickles the doctor!”
No. No, I don’t.

Looking at a guy who looks exactly like Steve Wasniak:
“Hi Daddy! Daddy hold you?”

My mom said to Ellen the other day, “Nobody puts baby in the corner.”
Ellen in any corner now: Baby in da corner?

When Ellen wants you to hold her upside down: "Upside Downton Abbey?"

When Ellen wants you to hold her upside down:
“Upside Downton Abbey?”

Apparently I was snoring the other day. I doubt it.
Ellen in my face: Mommy? Why you do dat?

New words to old favorites:
“All around da mulberry bush, da robot chase da weasel!”
“The cool kids on da bus go up and down!”
“Once upon a time, der were three mommies.”

Waking up in our bed the other morning:
Me: Good morning, peanut. Are you ready to get up?
Ellen (throwing head on pillow): You gotta be kidding me, mom!

Leaning underneath a teenage boy’s face, and very much in his personal kneeling prayer space at church:
“Boy? You sad?”

Mike had to take Ellen to the back of the church a few Sundays ago for stellar behavior. They walked past a statue of Mary with her hands outstretched.
“Mary? High five?”

Random Phrases:
Hi punk!
Great to meet you!
stuffy nose=snuffy nose
M&Ms=ummy nums
Any noise: What dat mean, mommy?
Mom, I have a question. (usually followed by her laughing and running away…)
Seeing a big cat: fat cat ever!


some text


  1. LOL. That would be my son trying to get Mary to give him a high five.

  2. I love it when you ask if they can say something and the answer is “no”. I get that a lot…

    Sully, can you say nuclear?
    No, silly mommy.


  3. Too cute! Love her wanting to high five Mary! And the cool kids on the bus sounds like an instant hit! :)

  4. BA ha ha ha ha! These are hilarious! I should write a similar post…. :-)

  5. Ah ha ha! That is so awesome! Kids say the funniest things! I loved..well, all of it, but I loved “Can you say …” “Um, no.” Ha ha!

  6. “Mary! High Five!” just made me laugh out loud. I sincerely hope when I go to Mass on Sunday, I’ll be able to look at the statue of Mary without laughing.

    • I am so glad we were visiting that church, because I don’t know if I could go back with a straight face :)

  7. :D kid-speak is the best. My 2.5 kittle guy calls M&Ms “emminems”, which is pretty good…but it’s also exactly how he pronounces “vitamins”… Maybe those gummy vites are a little too yummy…!
