In this house tonight are: THREE children who were exceptionally sweet, charming, and well-behaved today. They spent the whole day in their own world, only coming out to air the occasional grievance, have it rectified, and then returned. They just brushed their teeth (one of them brushed 4 times...) and are looking cute in their PJ's. There's a Pa on the couch reading some engineering thing I can't decipher and who has a very wind-burned face from standing outside watching a wall being built from 7AM until dark (he says it's as fun as it sounds). Also you can find two very loved but very stinky and shedding dogs (they're going to the groomer's tomorrow, thankfully) and a mom who just made a quick trip to the lib and made out with some borrowed treasures. Yes, somehow we all fit in that tiny little house down there!
