Whose kid is this?

This morning as I was getting ready, I overheard the following between Eliz and Ellie:

Eliana: Mommy, can I have a piece of candy? (Elizabeth told her that she had to ask before she got candy out of her Halloween stash. She's been surprisingly obedient about it.)

Elizabeth: Yes.

Ellie Leaves. Time passes. Ellie comes back.

Elizabeth: Where's your candy?

Eliana: I put it down

Elizabeth: alarmed Where did you put it down?

Eliana: On a plate on the table.

Sure enough, she'd gotten a plate out of the cupboard, put it on the table, and placed her sucker on it. We were a little stunned and really proud.
