After Ella telling me a couple of times that she could not remember what she did at school, the phrase “time for bed” suddenly jogged her memory and she launched into a long and convoluted story about her running around with “some people” (she meant some kids – admittedly they are people too) chasing her.
Ella – And the teacher had already given them 2 warnings. She said: “Put your willies back!”
Me – She said what?!
Ella – She said: “Put your willies back”.
Me – Willies?
Ella – Whee-eelies. The toys with the wheels. Did you see them this morning?
Me – [laughing out loud] I did. I do remember seeing the wheelies this morning. And what happened then?
