Ella's New Ride

For those of you that will know Ella in about 13 years - run. run now. run for your lives.

Bob and Jess should seriously consider not allowing this child to have a driver's license - maybe when she is 21?

For some reason, Jess thought it would be a good idea to get Ella this jeep. In theory, sure, great idea. However, reality shows a whole new side to Ella.

Ella likes the gas pedal. She does not like the steering wheel. Instead she goes full force ahead only to crash into whatever is in her path - smiling and laughing the whole way - apparently she likes the crash - yikes!

Ryan - the unknowing passenger, decided to pick up her play cell phone. Probably to dial 911. Ella decided that was not necessary and grabbed the phone and proceeded to "drive" while talking on the cell phone, with no hands on the wheels - Jess... do you do this?

Despite Ella's best efforts to cause whip-lash, Ryan had a blast with this jeep - and this is all he talks about! He has mastered the steering wheel, but for some reason doesn't get the foot pedal. So whereas Ella's driving is a most frightening ride, Ryan's driving may cause slight whiplash as he starts and stops and starts and stops.

I think these two need a bit more practice.

In my defense, I bought this at a yard sale for $20. Little did I know that they require *very expensive* batteries! We should bring it over to your house b/c you all have a lot more yard space. Ella only asks to ride it when Ryan is over anyway!

Oh hell no!!! You have a fence to keep the madness contained. At our house Ryan would be crying because Ella took the car down the street. Heaven forbid she not wear a helmet, this is cause for a serious meltdown!!!

That is hilarious! Meghan does the same with her friend’s jeep. I know it sounds sexist, but every time Meghan puts that jeep in reverse I tell my friend that you can definitely tell Meghan is a girl.
