Your children use your clothes line as shade for their tent.
Your stairway is littered with English homework, Ivanho, Little Women, and girly jackets.
Your carpet is real books. And no, this picture was NOT staged, but maybe I shouldn't admit that?
And the best thing that's happened to you all day is finding your little ones reading together on the couch while your bigger one bakes chocolate chip cookies for her grandma who is having a hard time.
