We dismantled Caitlyn's cardboard playhouse today. She doesn't really use it anymore, and we need the space to make way for more big-girl additions to her room. We'd gone over all of this with her, but naturally she was still quite distraught when the time came to do the actual deed. Once it was all in pieces, she asked to have a quiet moment alone with it. Afterwards she explained that she'd said goodbye, and that she'd told the playhouse that when it had moved on and it found itself in some strange new house with a strange new family, everything was going to be okay, because Caitlyn would still be dreaming of it.
