Mommy & Hailey's Mystery Trip!

Hailey had been feeling pretty bad the last couple days, a cold, trouble sleeping, not eating much, a little winy, but super cuddley! She had a rough morning today but perked up enough to go to day care. I felt so bad sending her on her way when she didn't feel up to par. I called day care to check up on her around 11 and they said she wasn't the rambunctious energy ball she usually is, so I came home to cuddle and help her feel better.

We sat for about 15 minutes reading together when she perked up and said "Out!" She hopped off my lap and practically ran to the coat rack pointing at her jacket with all she had! I told her we'll just stay inside to get better. She looked at me, then back at the door & coat rack, "Out! Out!!" So we had a mommy daughter field trip to Goodwill-the CLEARANCE Goodwill! She had so much fun picking out clothes from the table, holding them up against herself, and throwing one's she liked in the cart! We found 25 pieces of clothing for $8, 29 cents each! My new favorite store...Clearance Goodwill. She's just starting to like dress up so we got a pink bunny costume (she'll hate me when she's older), lots of pants, shirts & a sweater (size 14) that she LOVED! The entire way we were jamming to Christmas Carols, yes in March :) She was singing and swaying in the backseat. On our drive home, she was sitting in her carseat with a cup of snacks on her lap, her right leg hung over the side and singing and looking out the window - I just looked at her and smiled. It was the perfect mystery trip!
