The Jewish Museum with mommy

This is mommy writing …

Today was a beautiful Monday, Ella and I went to the Contemporary Jewish Museum. Even before we walked in, it was a joy as Ella loved playing around the front of the building, showing proudly her jumping off short stairs, touching the stones in the shallow fountain or talking about the beautiful multi-colored flowers. When we walked in the museum, we were told we had to check our diaper bag, the women who took the bag, said to Ella, “what is your name beautiful girl”, Ella said her name clear and strong, Ella returned the question to the women, “my name is Mrs Rosen” and then she asked Ella if she knew what Shabbas was, I took it further and asked Ella if she remembered how we light the shabbas candles and without hesitation, Ella showed Mrs. Rosen waving her hands around and then placing them over her eyes–Mrs Rosen was in awe as we continue to be with this beautiful Ella! The rest of the museum visit went on like this with joy and amazement –Ella identifying menorahs, shabbas candles, dreidels-then at Ella’s request—“Let’s eat in the cafe, and take the bus and go home”–so that is what we did–Peanut butter and jelly and hummus–Monday Monday—YOU CAN TRUST THAT DAY!

Thank you mommy for the beautiful recollection of today.

Here is Ella in front of the museum. Check out her outfit!

Ella is so much more confident with jumping.

Enjoying a chocolate cream puff.

When I came home from work today, Ella told me all about her day and she told me that she really loved the purple chairs at the museum.

This is what I call a fantastic fake smile.

Looks like a great lunch!

Ella looks like such a big girl to me in this picture.

Ella must have been in heaven putting her hands in the water.
