When I got out of the shower tonight Ella came in the bathroom and was hanging out with me while I brushed my hair.
"Wow mommy I like you hair!" I said thank you! She said "I help you if you want."
For those of you that know me, you know my hair is very curly, and therefore she very rarely get to brush/play with my hair. So, even though it was 10:00PM I decided to seize the moment and let Ella play with my hair. My hair may never be the same, but those were some of the best 20 minutes ever! She literally brushed my hair for 20 minutes, and chatted the whole time!!! Some of the highlights....
"You hair curly like Brave."
"I brush it looks like Oreo." (Ariel in Ella talk. Can you tell she is obsessed with Disney princesses? And can I just say I think that is quite observant!)
"When I grown up I brush hair. It be my job. I cut it too."
"When I old lady I drive car. I have my own keys. Own phone. My own cards like you." (License and debit card. Is she saying I am an old lady?)
"When I grown up I have MY own house." Wow.
So so sweet.
And you know what? I bet that Ella can and will do whatever she sets her mind to!!!
Happy 8th Birthday Colin!
