Ellery says the darndest things


I have a friend named Emily.  She is all sorts of lovely.

Emily has a little sister named Ellery, and Ellery has a blog.  Or, rather, their mom keeps a blog on Ellery’s behalf.

Please.  Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to What Ellery Says.

My favorites?

This one.

And this one.

Here‘s another.

Read this.

And yes, this, too.

I’m so glad that Ellery has things to say on the days when I don’t.

    I am so proud to have her as a little sister. I LOVE that my mom keeps a log of some of her more hilarious observations about life.

    So fun to read. Hey, would you ask them to put an RSS feed option on it so we can keep up with the cuteness?

    Annie – what have you done to me? Now I’m never gonna get to sleep… I’m reading every single one.

    Two favs so far:

    Ellery: I’m putting all my Polly Pockets in a dungeon.

    Mom: Oh no!

    Ellery: It’s just their fate.


    Ellery said, “Every night my nose grows new boogers and I have to pick them out.”

    I’m feel your pain Ellery.
