Ella is obsessed with brushing her hair. She walks around with at least one brush (she often double-fists) at all times. A few nights ago I woke up at about 4am, (yeah...I was ACTUALLY sleeping) decided to go to the bathroom, and was startled when I saw Ella sitting on my toilet. I whispered, "Ella, are you going potty, honey?" She in a half state of sleep responded with, "Yeah. Mommy, I need the brush. Gotta brush my hair."
At some point last night Ella snuck into my bed. I woke up this morning to find her AND three brushes in my bed. As funny as this all is to me, she has lost the ONLY brush I use. When I ask her where it is, she keeps telling me it's outside. Great. Gross. Guess I'll just have to start looking in all the weird hiding places my yard has to offer, because I still can't seem to find it.
All brushing aside - this girl sure knows how to accessorize. When in doubt, wear everything.
BDEM: Today was another wonderful day. Maddie and Jude went over to Oliver's (Maddie's boyfriend) house for a Halloween party, and I was able to do a little bit of shopping with only Ella and Claire. That was a really great hour and a half, but, ya know...this may sound dumb - but I'm just going to throw it out there. Every night before couch/computer vegging time, I sneak into my bathroom and pull out my contact lenses. I know this sounds dumb - but I swear that some days NOTHING makes me happier than to get those suckers out. Even though I don't realize they are driving me nuts, just the feeling of relief that comes once they are sitting in saline solution can often qualify as a BDEM. And today, it kind of did. I think I actually said, "Ahhhhh," as I pulled them out. It's like a massage for my eyeballs. Am I a freak for loving that moment SO much?!
