The other day found us with nothing to do. So we just hung out. I hardly ever just sit and listen to ellie, I am always trying to get the dishes done or the weeding or the car cleaned out, etc...
Plus, the girl talks nonstop. Like, uses up her word quota by 9am nonstop. People say she gets that from me. Hm.
This day, I just sat and listened. And I remembered how funny she is. I caught up on all her imaginary friends. She has about 32. The main ones are Baby Jaguar, Dolphin, Unicorn, and Lamby. I am not a fan of Lamby. She is bossy and sometimes mean.
As I was listening to the soap opera that is Ellie's imaginary friends, I was enjoying a vintage cola. Delicious.
And of course I watched her death defying feats on the slide, 246 times.
Then I mentioned that my tomatoes might need watered,
and she got the hint and got right on it.
Then I had a little water spa treatment.
Then she was all tuckered out so she took a little rest for a minute. She said Lamby wouldn't let her in the pool. It was just for imaginary friends for awhile. See, Lamby is bossy!
We were gonna grill for dinner, but it is still bloody freaking hot here, so we opted for Steak and Shake instead. I love Steak and Shake. Coke Zero with a shot of Cherry is the best.
Then we hit up a farmers market...
and got the worlds best snickerdoodle.
These are the days I will remember. Just the every day, simple things. The days right now are so very perfect. She is healthy and imaginative and funny and stubborn and beautiful and wonderful.
Chris and I try and soak as much of her up as we can every day. It is going so very fast.
