Puke Smell and Drum Player, plus "questions"
Ellie talking to herself in the back of the van:
"Oh what am I smelling, it smells like puke back here..."
Then she mutters under her breath..."It must be Jenna"
Random out of the blue, Ellie states: "When I go to highschool one day, I am going to be a drummer girl"
Mommy: "What makes you want to be a drummer girl?"
Ellie: "Oh just that I would be a good drummer, or maybe even an electric guitar girl!!!"
Claire: "Well, I am sticking with being a cheerleader"
Jenna: "Mommy, what is me gonna be?"
Mommy: "Jenna girl, you can be whatever you want..."
Ellie: "Hey, Jenna you can be a dancer girl"
Jenna: "Nah...Ellie, I am gonna be me, Jenna Pate"
Ellie also has begun the 'inquisitive stage' of development...I remember this with Claire too. It is not the 'why' question all the time...instead, it is kind of like the questions that come from wondering minds...like....
Ellie: "Mommy, how does the metal on a hair clip get there?"
Ellie: "Mommy, I know another word for big...it is enormous...but why are there more than one words for words?"
Ellie: "If God makes all the people, why does he make some of the people bad?"
Ellie: "When people go to the Lake of Fire, do they drown in the lake and does the fire come up to their necks?"
