Perfection

I've noticed lately that Ellie is REALLY starting to want to do well on everything she tries. Maybe it's an age thing....I hope so! She gets REALLY mad if she does not win in every game she plays or does not perform a task perfectly in her mind. As you can see in this picture....she wants to color...and she wants to do it right!
Pretty good for a 4 year old! (Oh, yeah....it's -15 degrees out....and yes, she is wearing a tank top dress. Pretty typical to see at our house!)

-15 degrees???? I think it's 38 here today and I'm freezing my tush off! Brrrr!!!

I was always a perfectionist for coloring. I actually won weekly awards in middle school for my neatly colored world maps! heehee Now there's something to brag about!

It's Friday! Relax, take a deep breath, and remember... Reid might be fussy and clingy, but it could be worse. He could be fussy and clingy AND talking back to you! : )

I LOVE the sleevless dress, looks just like our house. Ava had a sundress on yesterday and the sitter put tights and a long sleeve shirt under it! Most days I am greeted by either a swimsuit or that purple dance outfit Ellie wore when she was at our house!

Ellie, I love to color too but at my age it's called therapy. Your picture is beautiful!!! Stay warm..

Caylin is going through the same phase. She gets so mad if she colors outside the lines. She gets SO MAD! Same when we play games, she has to win!

These girls are too cute!!!! Caylin wore here bikini in the house Friday! Just looking at her made me even colder!!!

Stay warm!!!

We thought it was a phase too and that was 4 years ago. Broderick is still very much a perfectionist and everything has to be in order. It is a little annoying, but then when I see myself doing the EXACT same thing-I have to smile and realize that he is just a little me!

Hello, and welcome to my page! I am so glad you are here. I am going to try and show you the average life of a 5 year old from my perspective. Mommy and Daddy will help me along the way if I get stuck.

Let me first introduce my family to you. I am Ellie. I am a 6 year old. I live in Ohio with my Mommy, Daddy, little brother Reid, and dog, Sophie. My mommy is a teacher. She teaches nine and ten year olds and loves it. She has been teaching for twelve years. My daddy works with computers. He works hard everyday.

We all love spending time together. I have wonderful grandparents and a terrific extended family. I am a very lucky girl. Thank you for visiting my page. Write to me any time. I love getting mail!!!

Many blessing to you all.

Love,
Little Ski (Ellie)

Told ya, my hair can be wild! And you thought I was kidding!

Hmmm, Blue's Brother's perhaps?
