Coversationalism: Moving

A conversation had with G {3.75 years old} while driving in the car.

10:31 a.m.: Look a lake!
10:31 a.m.: What's that lake's name?
10:31 a.m.: It doesn't LOOK gray.
10:31 a.m.: Why is it named gray?
10:31 a.m.: Like my friend Gray?
10:31 a.m.: Is it Gray's lake?
10:32 a.m.: I want to live by Gray's lake!
10:32 a.m.: Why would we hafta sell our house?
10:32 a.m.: But I don't want to sell our house!
10:32 a.m.: We can't sell our house?
10:32 a.m.: I want to move our house TO Gray's lake.
10:32 a.m.: Why can't we move it?
10:33 a.m.: Buba is strong; he could move it.
10:33 a.m.: Big John is strong, too. He could help.
10:33 a.m.: Papa has a giant excavator.
10:34 a.m.: He would move it.
10:34 a.m.: Yes, he would!
10:34 a.m.: How much money?
10:34 a.m.: I have that much money in my piggy bank.
10:34 a.m.: I would give it to Papa so he would move our house.
10:34 a.m.: I DO have enough!
10:35 a.m.: How many George Washingtons is that?
10:35 a.m.: Oh.
10:35 a.m.: Well, don't worry, mommy. GOD could move our house!
10:35 a.m.: I will pray and ask God.
10:35 a.m.: Why wouldnt god want to move our house?
10:35 a.m.: God is strong. He could just pick it up and move it.
10:36 a.m.: But I don't want to move to a new house!
10:36 a.m.: ::Cue hysterical tears::
10:36 a.m.: ::Gasp:: ::Gasp:: We're not ::SOB:: moving to a ::SOB:: new house?
10:36 a.m.: OK because I ::Gasp:: love :SOB: my house.
10:36 a.m.: And ::gasp:: if we moved ::gasp gasp:: the tooth fairy* would never find my teeth.
10:37 a.m.: But God could probably move our house, mom. He's bigger than the boogy man**.
