The other day my parents stopped over to drop off their dog while going out of town for the weekend.  I was in the shower when they pulled in the driveway so Hailey came in and told me they were here.  Then she went to answer the door and told them, “Now is not a good time for you guys to come over.”


Hailey spent the day with my mom and when she came home I asked her if she had fun.  She said, “Any day with Grandma is a fun day.”


We’re getting ready to go on our annual trip to Disney World, so the other day I asked Hailey, “What are you most looking forward to about Disney World?”  She responded, “Going.”


The other night Hailey was watching TV when something came on that I didn’t want her to watch. I told her we needed to change the channel to something more kid-appropriate. She said, “MOM, you are RUINING my life!!”

Some of the things that Hailey says that I find entertaining:

Instead of saying “Just so you know” Hailey says “Just for you know…”


Hailey pronounces together “to-gell-er”


The other day I squeezed Hailey’s knee and she giggled, so I told her that if her knees are ticklish it means she likes the boys. She said, “Well mom, that is true. I DO like the boys.”


I have to tell Hailey to be quiet while I feed Hunter or he looks for her and won’t eat.  So when I tell her that, she asks a bunch of questions like: “What if there is a fire? or if I’m bleeding? or if I get sick? or I see a stranger?”


Instead of saying something is in a different language, Hailey always says it is in different English.


The other night while I was feeding Hunter, Hailey came out to me and whispered, “I did something bad.” (She always tells on herself!) When I asked her what she had done she told me she had written on her drawer. So I went in her room to see the damage… on the front of her dresser she had written, “I like you Mom and Dad.”

The other night when Hailey was praying she said, “Thank you for our treadmill so that my mom and dad can work out because they really need to.”
