And So It Begins

Most days, one can find Ella at the kitchen table, drawing and coloring for hours on end. Lately, she has been calling out to me, asking how words are spelled. Last Sunday was no different:

"Mommy, how do you spell, 'Santa Claus?'"

I told her. A few minutes later, Ella asked, "Mommy, how do you spell, 'microphone?'"

I told her.

"What are you doing over there? I asked.

"Oh, I 'm making my list for Santa. How do you spell 'Barbie and the Diamond Castle Doll?'"

I told her. A few minutes after that, Ella asked, "Mommy, how do you spell, 'my own couch and tv in my room?'"

While I didn't spell that, "N-E-V-E-R," I did tell her that she would not be getting a couch and television in her bedroom.

"But Mommy, I have plenty of room, and it would be so nice to have a couch in my room. And a tv. So that I could watch whatever I want, when I want."

have you ever seen those little couches for kids that sort of pull out and make into a bed? totally cool for little kids. as far as the tv? meh. but the couch i could see. a great place for her to stretch out and read a book.

how old is miss ella now?

i dont think my kids got a tv for their own playroom til they were in like 3rd and 4th grade.

N-E-V-E-R! Love it! :) Or, you could have told her, "w-h-e-n-y-o-u-h-a-v-e-a-j-o-b..."

I just saw this post for a great barbie deal & I had to go back through the blogs that I read to see who had a daughter that wanted Barbie with the diamond castle thing. Maybe this is what she wanted & it is a great price.

My daughter is 3.5 and this is the first times she's ever asked for specific things. In short, she wants *everything*.

I hope you hang onto to that list for your little girl. She'll get a kick out of it when she's older!!
