What is it about Grover??

I remember a dialogue that Grover had when we was working as a server in a diner..

It went something like this:

"Good morning Sir. I am Grover. I will be serving you today."

"Ah, hello Grover...I have the eggs and toast with orange juice"

"We are out of orange juice"

"OK..then I'll have the omelet and orange juice"

"We are OUT of orange juice.."

"Make it pancakes and orang..."

"SIR! We are OUT of Or-RrAnGe JUICE!!!!"

Makes me laugh just to think how frustrated Grover got. He was shaking and "Humph-ing"..

Which brings me to Ella. Ella Ireland. Ella Ireland Lopez. Who is turning 5 next week. 5 going on 15...

Ella:"My friend had a birthday at school today.."

Mommy : "Good! Was it fun?"

Ella: "Yes. They had cake."

Mommy: "How fun! You're going to have a birthday next week! With cupcakes!"

Ella: " I need a cake"

Mommy: "Yes, it's going to be cupcakes.."

Ella: "But I need...cake..."

Mommy: "CUPcakes...cupCAKES...cupcakes!"

Ella: "Cake"

Mommy: (sounding a little like ..Grover....) "Humph...CUPCAKES.."

Ella: "OK, cupcakes......and....... a's my birthday and I need birthday ....CAKE, OK?!"

Mommy:......sigh.......cake...ok...cake it is...

By the way Brandi, do you remember me telling you "I hope you have a daughter JUST LIKE YOU one day??!"

Welcome to my world...bwahahahaahahha!

Grover, I love you. Always have. Always will.

Ella is perfect for Pink Saturday! Did you do that on purpose? Of course, you did. And, please tell me Brandi is making her a CAKE!

Grover was always my grandchildren favorite and the Count, I think that was a great show for children. Ella is a very pretty girl, tell her Happy Birthday and I hope she gets cake.

Laurie and Chris said...

Oh my goodness that is so funny! I wonder if Ella will get a CAKE or cup CAKE!!

Just love all your photos. Thanks for the comment. Hugs, Denise

Jean said...

What a cutie she is! Sounds like she definately has a mind of her own. We've had over 18 inches of 'romantic snow' since Wed. night and I'm done with 'romance' in more than one way!! Jean

Mary said...

LoL! I can just see her trying to get her point across Grover style. She is a sweetheart!
Happy Day!

Brandi said...

Mom, you told me SEVERAL HUNDRED times that you hope I'll have a daughter just like me someday- I just never believed you ;).

And ofcourse Ella is getting her cake, she is the Queen of our castle and the light of our lives, LOL! She rules us all with her stubborn cuteness, muhahahahah

Too cute!!!! Love it!!!! Hope the birthday goes very well with the birthday girl, whether it is cake or CUPcakes. Either way it should by yummy!

Julie said...

Oh my gosh, she is such a sweetie. My poor daughter had to get her dad to make treats for school, because, "Well, Mrs. (teacher), my mom doesn't bake!"

Although we have differences in culture, but do not want is that this view is the same and I like that!
