Besides wishing she lived at her friend "Liverty's" house, Ellie has been on a nickname kick lately. Just a couple of examples:
You should call me Warmin. At first I thought she'd said Mormon, but then she clarified.
You should call me Warmin', because I'm always warmin' people's hands up.
And then at dinner:
You should call me Hottie.
Okay, that one surprised even me, so I asked her why.
Because I eat hot 'sagna!
Yeah, I don't think that one's gonna stick.
Today I had to stop her from licking someone at dance. Still with the dog routine - geez. Anyway, I may have said the words, "We don't lick people. Why is that so hard to learn?" And another mother may have replied, "Yeah, keep your hands, feet and tongue to yourself."
And I just might have added, "Yes. For. Ever."
