Earlier today, Lily and I cleaned and vacuumed the playroom. It was spotless. When we went back in the living room, her dad was busy trying to fix our cable connection. Both kids were a little too interested in what he was doing, so I announced “Ok, we’ll all go into the clean playroom and mess it up!”
Lily ran ahead of me and started throwing all the toys off the shelves.
“Let’s yuck it up! Let’s yuck it up!” she cried, throwing more and more toys.
Next time I will choose my words more wisely, no matter how true they may be.
