“We sure do have some good lights in our neighborhood.”
“Yeah.” she replied as she thoughtfully stared out the window at the passing houses. “Mom? Why is it called a neighborhood?”
“Um…” I realized I had no idea why it’s called a neighborhood.
“I don’t know…I mean…it’s all of our neighbors….and…”
“OH I KNOW!” she shouted from the back seat.
I couldn’t wait to hear her explanation.
“So the Earth, we’re on it and it’s like a big head and since it’s winter it’s cold and so the Earth is cold and so it has to wear a sweater. So maybe since we’re on the side of the Earth we’re in the hood of with all of our neighbors so it’s called a neighborhood!”
I can’t argue with that.
Today when we were in the car I asked if Vivi had fallen asleep and Addie said “No.”

I love this kid so hard.
She doesn’t just say sweet things, she draws sweet things too.
