Ellen loves to interact with the tv shows she watches.
Daniel Tiger: Can you say “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?
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?”
Great to meet you!
stuffy nose=snuffy nose
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!
