All Ella

Ella: What are you making for dinner?
Janssen: Thai meatballs and rice
Ella: Oh, well, I only eat kids meals, so you'll need to take me to Chick-fil-A.

Ella: Daddy, can you tell me a story?
Bart: Okay, give me a second to think of a good story.
Ella: No I want a bad story with bad people and bad animals.


We bought some Sour Cream and Onion Pringles at the grocery store. A couple days later, Ella asked if she could try one (generally, she only likes plain chips).
Ella: Oh! Actually, these are fairly good.

Ella: I don't really like that new shirt you got.
Janssen: Well, I like it, so I'm going to keep it.
Ella: [bursts into tears] But then I'll have to LOOK at you in it, and I will be so angry.

During quiet time:
Ella: Mom! Can you come close my window?
Janssen: Why is it open?
Ella: Well, I opened it and then I said to myself, "Actually, I don't want it open."

While playing Trouble, Ella makes an unusual move
Janssen: Why'd you do that?
Ella: Oh, it just seemed appealing to me.

At church, out of nowhere, Ella leans over to whisper in my ear
Ella: You know what I'm super glad about?
Janssen: What?
Ella: That we're not in a very scary animal's mouth.

On a family walk
Ella: Mom and Dad, you need to stay out of the street or we will go STRAIGHT home.

On our way to a birthday party for a little girl turning three
Ella: Do I know the person who is having a birthday?
Janssen: I'm not sure. Maybe not?
Ella: Well, when I meet her, I will shake her hand.

P.S. More Ella hilarity here.

  2. These were just ESPECIALLY good. Fairly good? Having to look at you in the shirt? Being in an animal's mouth? Hilarious.
