Lately Ellia has come up with some doozies.

At our special outing downtown the other night, the kids had several sweet treats.  By the time we got home, they were all dying of thirst.  Once they'd all had plenty of water, Ellia gasped,

"Whew!  When I drank all that water, it pushed the sugar all the way down to my feet. And I thought to myself that that was okay."

[overheard] "Olivia, I'm not going to get in trouble for this.  No one saw me but God, and I didn't hear him tell me not to do it."

At the dinner table, Ellia said something that was incorrect.  We let her know, and she said goodnaturedly,

"Aw man, that stinks.  I don't like to be wrong; I would rather be right!"
