The Mind is a Confusing Thing

Hayden explained:
"Remember when we went on the carousel? I remember that. I keep it in my brain. My brain is a maze. there are cars that drive on the streets and buildings like cafeterias. There are houses and big building. Brains are like buildings. They are like cities full of buildings. I want to go to the carousel again. can we go tomorrow?"

Playing Princess

Hayden and I were playing princess at the park.
"I can't go out. I have to do chores and laundry and there is a baby in my tummy. If I go outside, the baby's head will come out, the sun will get on it and the baby will get a cold."
"I am going to go out on a date with the prince tonight. I will call my mother and tell her to take care of my kids. I will tell her to because she has to watch them on date night, that's the rule."

Things said to my Pregnant Belly

" That's my old room!" Said while grabbing my belly and yelling at my belly button
"Get out baby, it's my turn in there"
"The baby has to be a girl because the baby is a princess. boy princesses don't work at all."
"the baby is going to be a boy. that way there are the same number of boys and girls at home. that is fair."
"the baby is not friendly. kicking mum in the belly is not friendly. the baby should get a time out for kicking. mum, where do you send the baby for time out? to your bum?"

When her brother was born

Just moments after Charlie exited the womb:
"Oh I love him. He is gonna love watching hockey with you Evan!"
Finally, Evan has someone to watch hockey with...
"I was going to teach charlie to talk, but he isn't ready. I will teach hi to Open his eyes. OOOPPPPPEN YOUR EEEEYYYYYYEEEEESSSS! You are doing great!"

On seeing her uncle Steven

Uncle Steven has not had a chance to meet baby Charlie yet because of a busy work shedule. Hayden's thoughts on the matter:
"Uncle Steven, I haven't seen you in days and days! (it's really been a few months)."
"Uncle Steven has a mean boss. He doesn't let him have home days ever. I get home days at daycare."

Talking about her baby brother

Gram mentioned that baby brother Charlie is getting very long.
"Yes, just like baby Jesus!"
