Ellie. Oh Ellie. She is asking such good guestions lately.


Where does the Easter bunny live? Hell. I have no idea where the Easter Bunny lives. So I made up a story about a den and how there are really 16 Easter Bunnies and they all live together in their den and spend all year filling eggs. I said 16 because she was afraid one Easter Bunny would be lonely cause Santa has Mrs. Claus and all the elves, etc... "But where is the den Mommy?" I told her Denmark. Get it? "Den"mark? Ha! I so amuse myself.

Why are there planets? What? How does she even know there are planets? I told her we were going to have to go home and look that one up. Of course, we forgot when we got home. Note to self: Study planets later...

What does "shouldn't" mean? Um, it means you shouldn't do something. Duh! Shouldn't is a hard word to explain. So I gave her lots of examples and I think she got it. Like, you SHOULDN'T eat a cookie before dinner.

What is chalk made of? What? I don't know.

Why do we have seasons? I think I got a little too technical with this one explaing the tilt of the earth and the distance from the sun. She got bored. But as least I knew this one...Jeesh!

Why do I have to go to bed? Because if you don't, I am going to go crazy with all of your talking. Now sleep!

I get these all day long. I am exhausted.

In other news, I am pretty convinced we have the next Mia Hamm here. We started soccer and she loves it! We have practices 2 times a week. Yes. 2 times a week. They are 4. I know. Crazy. And the drills they go through. It is like watching a high school practice. First game on the 17th. She is beside herself with excitement.

We are getting her into soccer too. We just picked up a net and ball for her bday. I can't believe they practice twice a week. What am I getting into or should I say what is my husband getting into. :)
