Girlie’s Lib

As it happens, our doctors, solicitor and accountant are all women.

As is Ellie’s teacher who basically knows EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING ;)

Last week the Queen of England visited (not us, the country)

This week, Barack Obama was coming.

When I told Ellie that the boss of all America was coming to visit, she replied “What’s HER name?”

Babies and Naps

Filed under: Things They Say — chris @ 9:38 am

Ellie:

“Mammy, I asked God for a baby brother and if I get one, you and Daddy will have to stay up all night minding it.

Cause that’s what babies do they stay up all night crying

Except sometimes it might have a LITTLE nap and then ye could have one too”
