A question from my 5-year-old son.
"The one we were making with the dishes in the sink."
Oh, that one. "I washed them. We need clean dishes to eat off of."
I am not the neatest person in the world, and I know this. I flatter myself that less than 24 hours of frantic effort can actually make my house presentable for guests. I actually have a bit of a hang-up over how much of a neat-freak I'm not.
But I actually do wash the dishes on a fairly regular basis. Even when it destroys the latest creation of a budding architect.
