This afternoon, McKid was busy, busy, busy laying out stuff all over the floor of my office, making the place ready for a party dinner we were supposed to have after I finished paying bills.
Heavens. She took down a whole shelf of flamingos and arranged them artfully (at least in her eyes) on top of a group of flashcards she had laid out as a table top.
After working for about 30 minutes, she stood back and looked at her work.
"Oh, mama. Isn't this such a beautiful tablescape?"
She sounded just like Sandra Lee on Semi-Homemade on FoodTV.
Of course, then she had to remark:
"Mama, don't let the dogs mess this up. I don't want to come back in here and see it looking cr*ppy!"
