Me: “Ellie, what do you want to be when you’re older?”
Ellie: “An American.”
Me: “Well, you’re already an American. What else do you want to be?
Ellie: “Um, a girl.”
Me: “Well, you’re already that too. What else do you want to be?”
Ellie: “I want to be an engineer!”
Ellie’s really getting into building things and learning about how things work lately. Today she’s even going to help me (well, watch and learn) change the oil on my car.
