I just had to laugh at Ella this weekend. Our driveway and garages are in the back down here and there is an alley. Ours is odd in that the alley comes out between two houses on each end instead of behind the corner houses. Anyway...we are on the U curve of the alley. It is not a really busy alley, but still has cars coming and going frequently. The girls are allowed to play in the driveway, but CANNOT be in the alley. There is kind of a "line" that is a good marker for them not to cross. I even park the car at the end of the "J" shaped driveway to keep them in.
So I was checking on them and found Ella here.
She saw me coming and quickly said, "But Mom, I am NOT in the alley." Me, "Technically you aren't, but don't you think that is still too close?" Her, without pause, "Nope!" She definitely pushes her limits:)
