This Room Was Perfectly Clean …


And then I left it, for no more than 10 minutes, to clean the kitchen. When I came back, it looked like this.

When I was a kid, I was made fun of for very carefully stacking and arranging my Christmas presents next to me, as I opened them.

Sophie, on the other hand, has no interest in keeping her picture books alphabetized, her dresses arranged in accordance with the color wheel or the lids to her Play-Doh on tight (we’re actually working on that last one).

Therefore, I can only blame Andy for this.
