It's just me and Ella (my niece) on Thursdays. Every Thursday, I pick up Ella from pre-school, and we head back to my house for some juice (Ella's beverage of choice), Tom & Jerry (Ellie's favorite cartoon), lunch, a few games and craft projects, etc. Later then, we go back to her house to get sister Katie off the school bus before Mommy (aka, Leanne) gets home from work.
Last week, I had a interesting conversation with Ella on our way back to her house. The conversation came completely out of the blue... here it is:
Ella: Auntie, I have the best boyfriend in the whole world.
Me: You do? Who is your boyfriend?
Ella: Michael. But don't tell Katie. He is the best boyfriend in the whole world. (Side comment: Michael is a boy in Ella's pre-school class.)
Me: Really? Why is Michael the best boyfriend in the whole world?
Ella: Because he looks at me all the time.
Me: He does?
Ella: Yes. But he doesn't kiss me.
Me: He doesn't kiss you?
Ella: NOOOOO! That would be gross!
Ella. Age 4. Gotta love it.
