Tell it like it is…

My parents are traveling to the Bluegrass tonight for a Presidents’ Day Weekend visit with the kids and possibly to help me get started on the construction a home office in our basement.

So Wednesday night, with child-like excitement, I ask Emma, “Did you know that Papa and Bidah are coming in just TWO DAYS?”  (Bidah is the name Emma made up for my mom, by the way).  I looked at her with wide eyes, anticipating the normal hooting and hollering and running through the house chanting, “Yay! Papa and Bidah are coming…Papa and Bidah are coming…”  But what did I get?  A very calm and collected 3-year-old girl took a deep breath, but her hands on her hips, and said…

“Yeah, and the house is REALLY messy.  We need to clean it up.”
