Red Lights

This past week while riding in the car, every time we have had to stop at a stoplight Ellie starts yelling. At first I could not figure out what she was saying, so then she started using some more words in her sentence. She was telling the cars in front of us to go.

So we would pull up to a stoplight and stop behind a car. She then says, "No car, go. Car going, go." As she says this to the car, as if it was going to obey her, she motions her hands as well. I find this hilarious, but after multiple times I realized I should probably teach her what's going on. I usually tell her we can't make the car go, but today I taught her about the stoplights. Didn't really work, because she said it again, but I'll keep explaining that the lights, not Ellie, are what tell us to go or stop .
