Ellie says

It's been a while since I've posted an Ellie says, mostly because as an older kid, she doesn't toss out as many quotables these days.  Except lately.  This week in particular, I've noticed her communication is frequently peppered with "Yeah, I know, right?" in a very teenager-esque way, so cool and flippant but without a hint of irony.  For example, today has been unpleasantly warm (a storm is coming).  Finally, a breeze has kicked up.  I commented on how nice it felt at last, and she nodded conspiratorially and gave me a casual "Yeah, I know, right?"

I have no idea where she picked this up.  It has definitely come from someone outside our house.  But really, it makes me smile.  This cool, flippant teenager-esque seven-year-old girl.
