twinkle

If you know and love Ella, you will love this. And if you are her mother, you will worry obsessively as you project what these personality traits will mean for her in the future.

This is a video of Ella's Spring Preschool Program. Ella will only sing songs "she knows" in public. Despite knowing every word to all the songs, only three or four make the list of songs approved for public consumption. "Twinkle, Twinkle" is on the list. "When You Wish Upon A Star" and "Catch a Falling Star" are not. When Miss Val made a mash up of the three, Ella stuck to the "Twinkle" lyrics and actions and skipped out on the rest.

The video is not great (sorry!) so you have to look hard. She's right in the middle, second row from the back.

That's hilarious. She was so intentional about what she was to sing and what she was not to sing. Like "oh, this isn't my part" and waited patiently for her part. Love it.

That is so funny. Annie did the same thing when she was 3 in preschool.
