I'm a little freaked out....

Several months ago, in the middle of the day, Haley put her raincoat on. There wasn't a cloud in the sky, but she would NOT under any circumstance take it off because she said it was going to rain. So all day long, she walked around in her raincoat (and was summer) getting strange looks from everyone. To me, it wasn't a battle worth fighting, so I let her imagination roam...or so I thought. It wasn't her imagination, because that night there was a huge thunderstorm. That kinda freaked us out...

Since then, that has happened twice.

Last night, as we were cleaning up dishes from dinner, and Haley and Lexi were playing a game, Haley looked up at me and said, "Mom, it is going to rain tonight." So, I looked at Curtis and said "Have you heard the forecast? Because they said it was going to rain tomorrow...not tonight." But Haley said, "No mom, it is going to rain tonight." Then she hopped up, put her raincoat on and got out her umbrella, ready for the rain.

Side story...we have a slight problem with our garage in that when it rains, it leaks and somewhat floods the garage. Not good...especially when you still have boxes that haven't been unpacked from the move. So, since Haley has been 3 for 3 on this one, we cleaned out the WHOLE garage last night...nothing on the floor.

Imagine my surprise when I woke up at 3am to a huge rain shower?????? I was SO glad we cleaned out the garage!! But now there is officially something a bit freakish about my daughter. Seriously, how can this be?????

When Haley woke up this morning, I said, "Haley, did you know it rained?" and she said, "Yes, and there was lightning too...did you see that?" "No, I didn't..." (but I don't doubt her) "Haley" I ask, "How did you know it would rain? " She replied, "God told me it was going to rain mom."

Enough said.
