We try to let Ella lead the way in big decisions.  Ella has been hinting for weeks that she wanted to spend the night with Mimi and Poppy.  She has seen Will’s room there and was ready to make it hers too.  So last night she said she wanted to stay and spend the night we agreed.  Chris fully prepared her by reminding her that we would not be there when she woke up in the middle of the night, it would be Mimi.  She said she knew that so we ran home and got her stuff and rushed back over.  She was excited but a bit timid when I left.  She seemed like she might cry but then carried on ready to do it. 

I expected to get a call at any point but never got one.   (so thankful to live close enough to run over if needed….).  Ella got up bright and early and was back home before I was fully awake.  She said she had a fun time and can’t wait to go back!!

Way to go big girl!

Wow! The trust shown in being able to go away for the night and believe you'd still be home, waiting for her.
That is AWESOME!
