Is She Sofia or Doc?

Hailey has an odd quirk that almost slipped past me.  Things are always chaos when the kids get home from school.  When Hailey and I get home at noon is just as bad.  I try to feed her lunch as quickly as possible so Hailey has time to play before taking a nap.  One day last week, I was making lunch and noticed that Hailey was talking to her bunny chair.  She walked in the house, made a bee line into the family room, and crouched down in front of her bunny chair.

After that day, I was more aware of what she was doing.  It's the same every day.  She walks into the family room and talks to this stuffed bunny.  She speaks softly enough that I can never make out what she is saying.  It is always a very animated conversation.  I try so hard to listen to it, but when I get closer, she stops speaking and grins at me.

I may never know what's she's telling this bunny nor know why she has full conversations with it every day.  Maybe she thinks she is Sofia the First who understands what animals are saying.  Maybe she thinks she is Doc McStuffins and her stuffed animals come to life.  Either way, it is a cute little stage that I look forward to every day.
