Joelle is fond of telling us that she wishes she could go back to the old house. We’ve kind of grown accustomed to her rhetoric and dismiss it as crazy. After all, she has TWO rooms in the new house. Two really cool rooms: her sleeping and play room.

So, last night when she said this, Chris actually started drilling her with questions.
“Why do you like the old house better?”
“Why do you want to go back?”
“What did your room look like?”

Suffice it to say, her answers weren’t all that clear. For example, she said her old room was pink, it was yellow. Yet, I do wonder if she is trying to conjure up memories of the old house. It was her first home and she felt safe tucked in her nest. Perhaps it’s human nature to be nostalgic.
