Today when we were eating breakfast Olivia said, "Before I go to a different house I'll have to get all my stuff."
I was confused and asked her to clarify, so after a couple of repetitions she said, "When I grow up and live in a different house."
And so I said that yes, of course, when she grows up and moves to her own house she will be able to take all of her things with her.
Olivia looked relieved and said, "I'll have to find all my cats and put them in my kitty tent." Then she went through all the other things she'd have to round up before she moved to her own place: heart clips, her yelling toy (Sing-a-ma-gig), her stickers, books, and princess dolls.
She then noted that she would have to get a big car in order to move all her stuff, so we talked about how maybe when she goes to high school she can get a job and save money so she can buy a car, and she will drive it herself and go to college. And maybe while she's in college she can get a job too so she can make more money and save it, and then after she graduates she will get a job too, so that when she gets married and becomes a mommy she can buy a house.
Then Olivia noted that she will leave Black Kitty behind for Daddy to play with, but maybe she could come back and visit us and play with Black Kitty. I assured her she would always be welcome.
It was just so cute, and just so...real?
