BDEM: While Maddie was at school and Jude was at his buddy's birthday party, I was able to spend a little bit of one on one time with Ella (Claire was there, but she was really quiet - so it was close enough). I told her maybe we could go out for some ice cream together so she had something fun to do, too. I explained that first we had to go to Target to get a few things, then we'd go out for a "just girls" ice cream. As we walked through the frozen food section she saw the ice cream and said we needed to buy some. I reminded her of our next stop - but she then told me we needed to buy THAT ice cream, so we could take it home and share with Maddie and Judy (as she calls him - yes, I realize Judy is a girl's name - no, I don't even kind of care - I actually think it's pretty cute.) So we bought the ice cream, and shared it with Maddie and Judy after dinner.
What a sweetie.
Don't worry, she realized her mistake and immediately took care of that by punching Jude in the back.
There's my girl!
