Everyone is out of school for no apparent reason, today, (unless there's a holiday I forgot, in which case, "Happy Day!" and I forgot to get you a gift...) and so after Claire's gymnastics class (yes, Claire is in the Mommy & Me class, now, once a week) we asked Kate's mom, who owns the gym, if Kate could come over and play for a while.
"Wow, your home is really messy!" Kate said after being here for about 5 minutes.
"This is a really messy home!" I just heard her say again.
Too funny. I find myself explaining to a 5 year old that we've had a really busy couple of weeks, and yes, things have gotten a wee bit out of hand, but it isn't always quite this messy... And then I remember, she's 5. It's probably a compliment.
