I'm just kidding

Here is the conversation Ella and I had on the way home from school this afternoon after the owner of our daycare gave her two new dolls:

Me: What's the little dolly's name?
Ella: I don't know her name.
Me: You get to give her a name.
Ella: Give her a name?
Me: Yeah. What do you want her name to be?
Ella: Ummmm...ABCDE.
Ella: Yeah, just E.
Me: E?
Ella: Yeah.
Me: Okay, what about big dolly? What do you want to name her?
Ella: Name her?
Me: Yeah. What names do you like?
Ella: I like blue.
Me: Blue?
Ella: Yeah. Her name's Blue.
Me: Okay, E and Blue.
Ella: Yeah. This is E and this is Blue.

We both allowed some time for these new names to sink in and to enjoy the pitter patter of rain on the roof and the swooshing of the windshield wipers before continuing our conversation. 

Me: What should we make for dinner?
Ella: Macaroni and poop!
Me: Macaroni and poop?
Ella: No, I'm just kidding Mommy.
Me: Okay, good.

Another day in the riveting life of Jeni and Ella. Stay tuned for the next episode.
