I am taking care of Ryan and Austin this week-end and it started last night. This morning I got them both ready and took Ryan to pre-school and then Austin over to Aunt Cait's.
As we pull into pre-school, he says "I like school this year". (It was kind of a struggle last year, with lots of tears.) The closer we get, he is getting more and more excited, making these squealy noises. I get Austin out of his car seat and as Ryan is climbing out, he looks up at me with an impish smile and says,
"Do you know there is a little girl I like?"
I said, "Yes, I have heard something about that"
Still grinning ear to ear he says, "Do you know her name?"
I said..."no, I don't."
And he says, in this tiny little voice "it's Ella".
Ryan is officially Ella enchanted.
