Ellie kept me company last night and today. First she tried to eat my dinner with a person sized fork. Then she rode in the car with me to Staples and Toys R Us. Luckily, Toys R Us didn't have anything she really wanted. What she really wants are clothes, and there were none there her size. She thought about a car, but she doesn't have a license, and who wants to drive on carpet anyway. Hmm...actually, she might still be considering the car.
Then she tried to climb up the helium balloons, but had no luck, so she stood on their heart shaped weight instead. She also climbed up the orchid, with better luck, but I whisked her off before the stem broke and she crashed down with it.
Thank goodness she's calmed down now, and is quite happy to be sitting beside me on the bed. I'm not sure if I'll actually convince her to take a nap with me or not. We'll see.
