Voices in her head

We were in the car (the setting of most great conversations) this afternoon with Kaci.

Kaci: Do you ever hear voices in your head?

Tyler and I looked at each other, with a smile, knowing that this was going to be good. Tyler asked her what she meant by that.

Kaci: Sometimes voices get trapped in my head and I have to let them out.

Tyler: How do they get caught in your head?

Kaci: Like this: ...... she then gets really quiet and looks around for a little while.

Tyler: Well, how do you get the voices out of your head?

Kaci: Like this: You have to talk them out. (she then babbles on about various subjects for a few minutes) Ok, they're out.

(The same apparently goes for when you get a song "stuck" in your head. You just sing it out!

Tyler and I are trying not to laugh hysterically by now, he is trying to keep the car on the road...

It was a fun day. We took Kaci to a new park to play and bought her a popsicle from the ice cream man while Shanna was at a birthday party. Then, we took both girls to the school field with the dog and some kites. Everyone got to run and play (I'm regretting the running part right now) We came home and grilled hamburgers and sat by the fire afterwards. I think we'll all sleep well tonight!
