The vacant house next to us is vacant no more! The girls and I and a bottle of wine went over last week to introduce ourselves. The next night, Lisa came over for a get-acquainted chat.
"My sister is Charlotte. Charlotte has blond hair.
Mommy had blond hair when she was a little girl.
Then it was brown."
"Ok, Hannah, can Mommy and Miss Lisa talk now?"
Hannah, ignoring the interruption:
"And then it was gray.
Then it was, um, red but the gray came back.
Then it was brown.
Now we don't know what color it is."
That's the last time I let her choose the color.
Hopefully, it's not the last time we see the new neighbors . . .
