Little Orphan Lucy

Lucy must be having some anxiety about the upcoming Major Life Change. She keeps asking me if the movie "Annie" is real, and are there really kids who don't have parents. And she's been very affectionate toward the dogs, saying things like, "I will always love Clifford. I never want a new dog."

Also, she has been playing with a stuffed cat she's named Kitty Kitty. If you ask where Kitty Kitty came from, Lucy will tell you this sad story about how Kitty Kitty's mother and family were out walking, and they found a new baby cat they loved more than Kitty Kitty, and they picked up the new kitten and left Kitty Kitty on the street.

Poor kid. All this change is a lot to process.
