Long time, no blog. It feels like I have only picked up my camera a handful of times in the last few weeks too...but ask me what I've been up to and I honestly don't even remember. Seriously, not much.
We are heading to Florida on Saturday for the week. I am really looking forward to being with my family and being there for my grandmother's 80th birthday. I send her pictures a few times a year and we were able to get down to Florida last year, which was wonderful. She and Ella both talk alot. They get along great! :0)
Life is full of it with a 4 year old. I inconveniently forget that she knows everything. Jeez how life would be so much easier if I would just get that through my scull. But my goodness, do I love that little brain of hers.
The night before....
Ella: "Mommy, maybe when we get up in the morning I can make my Ella's Special Creation for breakfast?"
Me: "What is that?"
Ella: "It is 5 jellybeans, 2 M&M's and a pancake all mixed together. And then maybe you can help me cook it in the oven because it would be too hot for me to do."
Me: "Sounds good. Remind me in the morning and we will do that.
The next morning....
She got her 5 jellybeans (ate about 10 more in the process) and 2 M&M's. I made a pancake for her and she mixed it all together with some syrup.
She was hesitant. She checked it out for a bit because the jellybeans and M&M's were all melted.
Ella: "I don't really like the jellybeans anymore."
Me: "Maybe next time we should put more M&M's in and less jellybeans."
Ella: "Ya. Maybe next time we shouldn't add any jellybeans or pancakes. Just M&M's and syrup. That would be good."
