Ellie has started interacting with the cartoons she watches. For example, if Dora asks her to help pull Boots out of the icky, sticky mud, she is puuuullllliiinnnggg. Or if Steve asks her to help find Blue, she is shouting and pointing "There she is!" It's fun to watch.
Yesterday, I was getting ready and a loan commercial came on TV. The announcer goes "Do you want to get rid of your debt?" And without pause Ellie goes "Yes, I do!". Cracked me up. I looked down at her and told her what a good girl she was and how she was right, debt is bad. Now she goes around saying "Debt is bad, mommy" or "Mommy, get rid of your debt." Ha!
Sound financial advice from a toddler. Priceless.
