We were to have some company yesterday morning, and knowing that always makes the children impatient. It led to my having this exchange with Natasha:
N: What’s taking her so long?
A: She’s got two little kids who are too little to help, so she has to do all the getting ready herself.
N: Wow. That’s a lot of work
A: Yes, it is. I’m glad I have such big kids to help me. It’s very nice.
And she went back to helping clean up. Very nice.
