everything she does is magic


picnic

she's on a monster kick today. running suddenly and leaping onto beds and couches, saying "oh! mon-ter!" and telling me she couldn't get her book out from under my bed because the monster under there would bite her hand and stuff. and when i was on the phone she climbed right on top of me saying "cary mon-ter comin'!!!" so i asked her if she was sure it was a scary monster? that maybe it was a nice monster. that we should go talk to it and find out. turns out, he was nice. so she invited him to her picnic.

and then, after they ate, she asked me where monsters live. i had to think quick, but i said outside. so we opened the patio door and waved goodbye. a lucky gust of wind made it feel right.

this morning she chatted on the phone with uncle brody and auntie tara. she still doesn't get that they can't see her. she's constantly holding things up to the phone and saying "yook!" she held a pontail holder up and looked thru it and said to uncle brody "see? see?" and when i tried (again) to explain that he couldn't see her thru the phone, i asked "where's uncle brody?" and she pointed to the phone and said "in there!" ha.

one of her favorite play games lately is putting everybody to bed. monkey. bunny. dolly. penguin. me. everyone gets their own pillow and blanket. everyone gets a kiss and a tuck-in and a "yuv you", and good night.

one of two mommies, you sound like a great mom I went through your blog and i am left stunned from the love and dedication you have to ella the only thing i could not figure out is whether the arrangement with Ella after the divorce was that you have her the whole week and the other mom has her for the weekends?

There is so many things i wish to ask you and could not find the way to contact you outside the blog is an email a rude request?

Please...

Elle
