Awkward Conversation

See that sweet little innocent child? She is so beautiful and amazing, and I almost corrupted her today on accident. The conversation went a little bit like this:

"I want to get a dog that can have puppies."
"That's an awful lot of work Hailey. I don't think we want to do that."
"How do you know if a dog can have puppies or not?"
"Well you can if they had surgery or not. Journey had surgery to make sure she couldn't have puppies. They can do that for both dogs and cats, and for boy dogs and girl dogs."
"Boy dogs don't have babies!!"
"Well they help make them." - my thoughts begin racing after this comment. What did I get myself into? What if she asks THE question that I am not ready to answer. What will I tell her daddy? Is her mom going to hate me? I'm just the Bonus Mom. Oh my gosh; Oh my gosh.

Her response......

"Our world is VERY different from their's."



  1. HYSTERICAL.....your reaction, not Hailey's comments....but I LOVE "Bonus MOM"

  2. Well..Bonus Mom you did great on the answer...and I am sure sweated all the way through! The furute only holds more of those questions.....

  3. I love "Bonus Mom" too.

    Those kind of questions scare me too....right along with the Santa questions....

  4. Very funny story. Thanks for sharing. Give her a hug.


  5. BTW...I forgot to say...THAT IS AN ADORABLE PICTURE... I REALLY like the dress, but the sweet girl posing is what I really love!! Keep the posts and pictures coming Bonus Mom...It is as close as we get to seeing Hailey grow up. Also, can't wait to hear about the house when you hear anything. Uncle Joe and I are very excited for your little family.

  6. Hey, I'm a little slow at commenting...didn't realize that you had a new post.

    Love the picture of Hailey-bailey...she is such a sweetheart! (give her a squeeze from Grandma Deb for me please) ...and the conversation was priceless. Thanks for sharing it with us all. Miss you guys. Deb
