Smack Talk

Imagine sitting at dinner with us, chatting about the day, when this little high-pitched voice chimes in."Mommy, I'm gonna beat you." She gives you that look that let's you know you've been challenged and starts shoveling her food in. (Eating races probably aren't the best table manners, but it sure helps her finish all of her dinner!) "Mom, you're toast." Where did she learn to smack talk? Now it seems that "you're toast" is not quite enough for her. She took today's dinner smack talk to the next level: "You're burning toast." You think you can take her?

That little face! That darling smile! That feisty personality! I love it -- and I'm totally up to her challenge. Bring it on, Ellie, bring it on . . .

It's beginning early. Dinner at the Dahle's--are you tough enough?

Hahahaaaa! That's funny. Such a sweet tiny voice makes some pretty hot words, huh?

How cute! With talk like that...is it safe to assume that you were burned?

She is a feisty one, like her mom! Feisty, yet also witty and super cute.
