Ellery's Mother's Day card as dictated to Emily:
Ellery: I love Mommy. Jackson has a balloon and I'm getting an orange smoothie.
Emily: What do you want to tell Mom about how much you love her?
Ellery: Tons. All the way up to my love line.
Emily: Thank you Mom for...
Ellery: ...the food that you cook for me for dinner.
Thanks for playing with me when Dane comes here.
Thanks for being my mommy forever and ever.
And write a picture of me and her hugging each other, will ya?

Ellery was humming quietly to herself and then she brightened and said, "Mom I made up a song that has two parts. Do you want to sing it with me?"
"Of course!" I replied. "What's my part?"
With a little shimmy of her shoulders, she instructed, "Possible...Possible...Possible..." giving it a jazzy rhythm with a questioning emphasis on the last syllable.
I imitated as well as I could, including the sassy shake of the shoulders as Ellery joined in with her part, alternating with mine.
"Cracker! Cracker! Cracker!"
