Our Little Organizer

Ellie is rapidly eclipsing us in terms of her memory. At least, for those things she actually wants to remember. If you ask her why she hit her brother, the answer will be, “I don’t know.” But yesterday, I asked her what she wanted for dessert, and she said, “Ice cream.” I didn’t think we had any ice cream, but she quickly reminded me that we had new ice cream, the chocolate kind that we got from Trader Joe’s. And wouldn’t you know it, she was spot on, we had gotten chocolate gelato from Trader Joe’s a couple of days earlier, and I had forgotten. Today, Lisa was trying to convince Ellie that she should have pizza tomorrow for lunch, but Ellie reminded Lisa that we are going to Two Amy’s for our anniversary dinner tomorrow night and she didn’t want to have pizza for lunch and dinner.
Smart kid, when she wants to be.
