Runaway tot aka independent girl

We were staying at uncle’s house one day, and I told Ella we would go to the park after Rhys’s nap.

I saw Ella put on her pants (which she can now do quite well by herself) and put on her Minnie Mouse flip flops, all the while repeating “parque” (=park). I reassured her we were gong after Rhys woke up.

So I put Rhys down and went to check really quick on some laundry I was doing. I heard the phone ring and Ravina yell: “security just called and they found Ella heading towards the park by herself.”

We both rushed to the front door to find Ella hand in hand with one of the security guards, a big smile on her face, pushing her stroller with her bunny in it and carrying her owl backpack. She kept repeating “parque, parque” and looked very happy.

And by the way, she was heading in the right direction when security found her.
