Kid Logic: New House, Old House

Elijah: "Mummy, why didn't we buy a new house?"

Me: "We did, darling. We moved into our new house."

Elijah: "That's not a new house. That's an old house. We bought an old house. Why didn't we buy a new house?"

Me: "??"

When I was 4 we moved into our new house... It was New new, my dad took a pencil out and drafted the design and then we watched it being built. I remember I thought that you always did that when you move lol!

The more questions Elijah asks, the more I realise how inconsistent the English language is!
