Ella loves talking on the phone, but sometimes doesn’t quite get the courtesy questions people ask her, which resulted in a few “d’uh moments” recently.
When she and her godmother were discussing the details of her 5th birthday party – which after all is only about 8 months away – and they’d covered the dress code and decorations:
Godmother – And what are you going to do for the cake, Ella?
Ella – Eat it.
When she came on the phone when I called her grandmother who was minding her for the day:
Me – Hi Ella. What are you doing?
Ella – Talking to you.
