Ellie is very intoÂ contest games right now – as in, everything is a race. Everything. And everyone is always playing, even if they don’t know it.
“I finished my dinner first, I win!!”
“I made it to the car first, I’m the winner!”
“Aw, Jamie beat me to the bathtub!”
“I got my shoes on the fastest!”
All of this seems so fun and innocent, until I overhear her talking toÂ the nanny last week while we’re apparently doing something race-worthy,
“My Daddy beats my Mommy every day.”
Errrrrrrr… yikes. I feel like I need to just shadow her for the next 5 years so I can clarify everything that comes out of her mouth.
