Jennifer cleaned the living and dining rooms in our house this morning while Kathleen and Lucy were at a friends house. Doing so required sorting through children’s clothes, shoes, snack containers, etc.
When the girls returned we sat them down: “Do you like how the house looks?”
Me: “What can we do to keep it this way?”
Kathleen: “Keep Lucy and me in cages?”
She may have hit upon the only long-term solution.
