Burning down the house

Sweetums: "Mom, remember how we are going to get a new house in a second?"

Me: "Ummm, no."

Sweetums: "Remember when our house burns down in a second, how we are going to get a new one?"

Me: "Ummm, why would our house burn down in a second?"

Sweetums: (put on complete and utterly annoyed voice in head please) "Ugh, just when it does!!"

Me: "Ummm, okay??"

Sweetums: "Well, when it does and we get a new one, I want my room to be painted red and green with a Christmas tree in it."

Start searching for matches, lighters, stuff that starts fires RIGHT NOW. Easier solution, have a mommy/daughter painting day and skip the burning the house down~ Man the things kids come up with these days....Hope you have a MERRY CHRISTMAS, and no new house in the New Year-(unless you purchase one)

Well Geesh, what other way are you gonna get a new house? I love that Sweetums!!!

I guess its time to redecorate, huh! Hey, your letter was on top of the pile, like you asked. Should be there in 3-5 days. I bet you can't stand the anticipation. :)

That is funny--my Hattie who is 3 is always asking when we are getting a new house--I always tell her to get comfy cuz we are staying here a long time.

You should keep track of the matches in your house and all other things that start fires....she might be determined to get her Christmas room!! :-)
