First of all, you would have to know that Ella has a quirky little language thing that goes like this: If you are cooking something in the kitchen, you are a cooker. If you are drawing a picture, you are a drawer. And so on and so forth. I was sewing a birthday gift for our niece yesterday, and was using a small u-shaped tool to get some stuck thread out of the bobbin thingamajiggy. Ella wandered over. An excerpt from the conversation.
E: "Mom, what are you doing?"
Me: "Well, I'm using this small hook to get this thread un-stuck so I can finish sewing."
Pause. She watches me for a few minutes.
E: "Mom? You are a really good hooker."
Why, thank you, my dear. I can definitely file this under "Things I Never In A Million Years Imagined My Kid Would Say To Me, Ever."
