...a few days ago, she was watching a show and became very upset that the cartoon dog on the show was taken away to the shelter. She was very worried that the dog's neck was hurting and that the dog was not with his family.
...that same day (we are watching lots of shows while we attempt to potty train), she turned to warn me that Curious George was letting all of the sheep out of their fence. I had to assure her that everything would be okay and George would make sure they were all safe again.
...then the sweetest moment happened when John was having some back trouble and told Ellington that he had to sleep on the floor because he had an 'ouchee' on his back. Ellington started crying and ran over to hug him, repeatedly saying ' I love you! I love you!' We had to have another little talk to try to explain to her that everything would be okay and Daddy just had a little boo-boo.
Happy Happy Birthday, Ellington!!
