She's Gifted, Alright...

In the car, just Hallie and me--
Hallie: Did you know that the sun is brighter or not as bright depending on how full the moon is?
Me: No, I don't believe I was aware of that?
Hallie: Well, its not a scientifical fact, but that's what I've observed. Sometimes I can look directly at the sun and it doesn't hurt my eyes, and other times I can't look directly at the sun. I know its not good to look at the sun all the time, its just that sometimes when I'm on the playground I can't help myself...blah, blah, blah, gab, gab, gab, talk, talk, talk...
(Ok so she didn't really say "blah, gab, talk, " but that's what it began to sound like after 10 non-stop minutes.)
Me: Hallie, you sure talk an awful lot!
Hallie: (and I quote) Mom, my voice is my gift!

Some posts just write themselves...

She and Micah would get along famously! Or drive each other crazy b/c neither could get a word in edgewise.

You gotta love em... reminder her that God only gave her so many words to use a day and if she uses them all up at once how will she be able to talk later???? :-)
