On Conference Sunday, between sessions, Riley and Brynn made some kind of Haunted House in their bathroom. I'm not sure what they were even doing in there. I was upstairs and heard banging on the bath room door and screaming. The next thing I knew, Haley was running up the stairs screaming. I picked her up and held her for probably a good 10 minutes. Her whole body was shaking. I was ready to do some serious butt-kicking. (I guess I am a little protective of my sweet little 4 year old.) Maybe they just used the whole, "Haunted House trick" to scare the crap out of their little sister. They say that they did not mean to scare her that bad.
That night, during the middle of the night,(you know that great time when you are sound asleep) Haley woke me up and told me she was scared. Gosh, I can't imagine why?! That same routine took place every night for the next 8 days. Every night she would tell us that she was too scared to sleep in her room, and during the night would join us in our bed. We have a king size bed, so you wouldn't think that it is so bad. Unfortunately, Haley chooses to sleep right, right, right up against ME. Feel the love. It makes it rather hard to turn over...so I don't. Last night for some strange reason, she did not join us. I think that she was just overly tired from all the other crazy nights.
Gone are the days of peaceful sleep (at least for now). This picture makes me laugh. Haley thinks that she is still drinking out of a cup. Too cute.
Haley has now become my shadow around the house. She gets nervous when I leave the room and takes off after me. It is especially bad if I go downstairs or upstairs without her. PANIC BUTTON.
Today we had to run some errands. I ran upstairs to grab something I forgot. Haley took off after me. She happened to have a tamborine in her hand. When she ran, it made a huge racket that made her run faster, which made the tamborine louder, which made her run faster.....you get the picture.
I guess that someday Riley and Brynn will receive payback when their kids do the exact same thing. When they call me to tell me about it, I will just have to smile.
