Hailey is like an MP3 player. She is constantly singing Christmas music. While grocery shopping she was singing "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas." Her version goes like this: "Have a holly jolly Christmas, (blah, blah, blah) please have snow and mistletoe, and a cup of beer!" I smiled the first couple times, but just couldn't contain myself, as I realized that is how she's memorized the song!
Hailey's monthly school newsletter always includes cute things that each child says. Here's a conversation from it.
Hailey: My Mom calls me alligator.
Gilford: Alligator? Alligator is a green big animal with many teeth, he lives in the water and you don't want to be called an alligator. Tell your mom to change it.
H: Oh! Okay!
G: My dad is very silly, he always does silly things at home with us. My mom is only silly sometimes, not all the time.
H: My Dad is fun!
I'm glad the reporter ended it there. Who knows what else she could have said? At least she didn't say that I was no fun! And for the record, I have never called her alligator. What else does she make up about us?
Hailey was talking about these two funny boys from her class. I mentioned that they were twins. I asked if she knew what this meant. She replied, "Yah, they got out at the same time"
I walk a thin line of sanity, as a stay at home mother. My PhD husband has elected to pursue a law degree, and I am actually okay with more schooling! Something may be wrong with me? But we love our life and acknowledge our blessings!
