One of my favorite people in the universe is moving across the country. You know her as Auntie Sip. She even dressed up as a big bunny for Halloween, and you were Little Bunny. Adorable doesn’t even begin to cover it, since you were BOTH into Halloween, equally.
Anyway, I was trying to explain to you that she is moving away. That you won’t see her again for a while. You just blinked a couple of times and asked for bubble wrap, because, again, you are two.
I then tried a new tactic: “Ace, Auntie Sip is moving. She and Uncle Doug are getting a new house.”
You thought about this for a minute, and came back with: “Sip’s house broken? Sip new house – Sip’s house broken?”
You know what? As far as your world view is concerned, that IS the only reasonable explanation for getting a new house. You’ve never moved. No one has ever moved away. And you’re…..well, you’re two., so you are trying to figure it out.
You are adorable. You are also going to be really sad once you realize that sometimes people move away, but that is the beauty of Skype and a floundering airline industry.
