Last night when the kids went to bed, our living room was a TERRIBLE mess. This morning we jumped out of bed and headed for town so the kids had no time to notice I had stayed awake to clean it. We got home this afternoon and had this conversation:
Melissa: Who cleaned the living room?
Mom: I did.
Melissa: All by yourself?
Melissa: Wow, how did you do that?
Ha! I guess I am not known for cleaning "all by myself." :) Usually I tell them to pick up their stuff and then throw the rest away.
