Tonight as we were just about through devouring our taco dinner, Gwen came down from the bathroom (where she had followed Ella who had excused herself moments before) to inform us that "Ella needs a p------y seeee!" Gwen is quite eloquent for a 2 year old, and it sounded to us like Ella needed a potty seat. But she tenaciously kept shaking her head and repeating "Ella needs a p----y seeee!" After about 5 or 6 repeats, Addie was the one to finally decipher her baby talk.... "Ella needs a PRIVACY!" Aaaaah!
"Can you get it, Daddy?" :)
And now a lil su'm su'm from the 3 year old world of Ella. She has recently become amazed at her own intellect. I've been hearing multiple times a day, "I know why_______ is called a _________! Because it is ________!" I suppose you might need examples.
"Mommy, I know why sour cream is called sour cream! Because it's sour!"
"Mommy, I know why toilet paper is called toilet paper! Because it goes in the toilet!"
"Mommy, I know why a pillow case is called a pillow case! Because it goes on a pillow!"
"Mommy, I know why a washcloth is called a washcloth! Because you use it to wash!"
I'm sure you get the picture. The funny part is her excitement over her discoveries. (Those exclamation points are true exclamation points.) I'm telling you, that girl will get a full ride to the college of her choice someday. Pure genius!;)
