The Naughty Tiny Tyrant

Oh my Ella. She is really something else. We affectionately call her Tiny Tyrant, or TT for short, here around the house. Ella has been out of school for a week and a half now and I don't know how we are going to survive the summer. She misses school, I miss her going to school, I have my fears about her not being in school (but that's for another post.)
Ella's language is again exploding, unfortunately it is mostly used to be defiant, sassy and naughty!! Here are a few of her new favorite phrases....

"Do it myself."
"LET ME GO!!!" (which she screams at me when I try to make her hold my hand when we are walking in public)
"Don't wike it _____ (insert anywhere we are as in Walmart, Hunter's baseball game etc any food you sit in front of her, though she will eat it anyway, bedtime, bathtime)
"Ella turn!"
"Butt fay" Fay = Face
"Poopy head" caught on video below, it was the first time she has ever said that one

I'm sure there are more, just can't think of them right now : )

The problem is I have a hard time not giggling at a few of them, such as butt fay. I mean really, it's funny, and she says it to be funny, and it's just so.......typical?

She is getting pretty sneaky too. She will sneak upstairs and try to sneak snacks out of the pantry. Dump out all of their art supplies out of the cabinet, including her brothers 100+ marker set. She goes in her room and pulls all of her clothes that she can reach off of shelves and out of drawers. Last weekend she got in her backpack (which I had not emptied from her last day of school 2 days prior) and pulled out the dry erase markers that her teachers gave them, along with laminated worksheets, and drew all over herself, taking extra care to pull up her pant legs and draw up to her knees. She came upstairs all quiet and hid behind the curtains. Of course I saw her going back there so ran and grabbed my camera.


She is such a stinker!! Here is a video I took of her yesterday afternoon. I never want to forget her cute little voice saying "butt fay." I can't help myself.

OMG she is Payton in the making. Well, Payton doesn't say those things, but ya know. LOL. Last week Payton had marker all up and down her legs just like that, and all over the inside of my car ... permanent marker! She had gotten it from her teacher in an end of the year gift, who gives a kid permanent marker!!!
