Lily has been obsessed with fires since we saw a house that had burned in mid-DECEMBER!!!
She asked about this house a minimum of once per day
"Where'd buwrned house go?"
I'll remind her that it's by the bookstore. Then she asks to see it. "Buwrned house sad." I explain that someone will fix it up, then it will be happy.
Add to this the fact that we saw a car on fire (really, an inferno) on the way to Columbia to see Seasame Street Live. Can you guess what ELSE she asks about all the time?
She thinks the burned car is sad, too, even though I told her someone fixed it. Now she asks, "Where'd fissed car go?"
"When fiwe comes, wun to Mya's houwse" is what I hear many other days. That's her fire plan. Today on the way home from school, she told me about how fire likes food. (?)
She told me yesterday that fire came out of the smoke detector and I had to let her know what the smoke detector actually did. She looked very relieved.
This girl is OBSESSED!!!!
