I was saying goodbye to Ella in front of a friend at school and as usual, she requested a 'lift-up cuddle'.
Then she said to the friend:
Ella - Mum can't lift me up properly because her back...
Me - Because you're so fat!
Ella - No, mum can't lift me up because her back...
Me - Because you're as fat as an elephant!
Ella - No, because her back...
Me - You're as fat as an elephant and way too heavy for anyone to lift up!
Ella - ... because her back is sore.
Oh how I love childish humour!
