When she tells you that she can still play with you even when she's at her Memaw's house because she has a "DVSPS". With it, she can play games with you - like helping you get over the stinky mud, climb a wall, make a cake and clean your room. All you have to do is go to "phone.com" and it's all there, Mom! (I'm not sure if that's a real website & I'm not endorsing it if it is!)
Ella's definitely picked up on the fact that alot of what is talked about at home & especially on t.v. is related to the computer and the phone. She's been trying to figure out all the acronyms lately and I guess she just had a bunch of them spinning around in her mind the other day when she said all of this. The best part was how matter-of-fact she was about the whole thing. :)
Speaking of funny things kids say...
While we were shopping in Destin during our stay-cation, we sat down on a bench and she saw a treat that she wanted - a strawberry-flavored Italian ice. She started begging for it and told Paul, "C'mon Dad. Please buy it for me. You know I can have it because vacation means we can eat whatever we want!". :-) Hmmmm...I wonder what gave her that impression!
My parents celebrated their 38th wedding anniversary on July 11. We had told Ella about it and had talked a little about the meaning of the word anniversary. That Sunday, my mom cancelled lunch at her house and Ella was pretty distraught about it. After a bit of thought, she said something like, "Maybe Memaw didn't want us to come over because it's her and PawPaw's anniversary and they want to be alone." Paul & I just about fell out on that one!
And the other day she asked me if she could have a "beagle". Translation: "bagel".
That's about all I can think of right now. I need sleep! Off to read some more of The Shack and hopefully doze off into dreamland.
