The pink house that Dad has

I got an email today from the "What to Expect" parenting advice website. The subject was "Weird Toddler Behavior". Yes, my toddlers exhibit some weird behavior from time to time.

By the way, what is the technical definition of a toddler? The kids are 3 and 5 now. Is Miles no longer a toddler? Is it defined by when they grow out of the T size clothing.
Anyway, sometimes it isn't so much behavior, because weird is what describes most of their behavior. Like when they hide things in weird places then you find them. Miles hoards things in this one drawer in our coffee table. I'm sure he thinks it is his safe place, away from his sister. He hides his special Lego pieces and project that he doesn't want her to touch.

No it is sometime more of the weird things they say. This morning as I was driving the kids to their respective care Alice and I had this conversation:
A: "I want to move to a different house."
Me: "Why do you want to move?"
A: "Because our house is old."
Me: "Honey, our house isn't that old. And old things can still be nice."
Miles: "Yah, I like old things"
Me: "Where would you like to move to Alice?"
A: "To that pink house that our Dad has."

This is weird! Number 1) because Aaron and I live together in the same house; number 2) because she has mentioned this pink house several times. She will point out a pink house while we are driving in town (I have no idea the pink house she is referring to because I never see a pink house when she points it out). When she does point out this house she says, "that is the pink house that Dad has" and that she wants to go there.

Ok, I never know what to say. I have no other assumption to make besides her remembering a past life where her Dad in that life lived in a pink house. Unless, that is if Aaron has another house that I don't know about and he has taken Alice there.

At least they haven't said anything creepy to me like they want to see what my insides look like.
