Now that it's cooler out and I wear a jacket to work, Ella knows that as soon as I pick up my jacket and start to put it on that I'm leaving for the day, and she starts waving and says bye. Today I picked up my lunch bag off the counter and she started saying bye, bye. Steve and I were saying we wonder what she thinks of the fact that I'm gone all day and where does she think I go, am doing, etc.
So, Steve says to Ella: "Ella, do you know where Mommy goes every day?"
Ella's proud and happy reply, clear as a bell: "Outside"!
Made my morning :)
