boy with dirty fingersMy son had just finished eating when I noticed that his hands were miraculously clean. I asked him if he wiped his fingers on his pajamas instead of the napkin. He replied, “No, I wiped them on the chair.”

girl on carpetWe were expecting company for the weekend, so I wanted to make sure all of my children’s rooms were clean. I asked my daughter to go upstairs and see what shape her brother’s room was in. She came running down and said, “I’m not sure, but I think it’s a square.”
