Ellie says

Ellie's sentences have been punctuated of late with emphasis words. Her favorite for a few weeks now has been "very very very" (always in 3s, as in "That was very very very LOUD."), though the latest addition has been the amusing "quite actually" (as in, "Quite actually, I want the fish puzzle."). This week's quote comes from our attempt to explain the cats' departure. We told her matter-of-factly that the cats would be moving to live with another family. She didn't flinch. Instead, she looked up and said just as matter-of-factly,
"Yes, I will go see another family too. I will meet some very very very BIG BOYS."
It begins.

I just had to tell you that anytime Eric and I are headed somewhere or walking along and have to ask the other to wait - we always add "let me get my tambourine" to the end of the request :-)
