The Mama went on a business trip, The Kidling went on vacation, and The Dada had Our House to himself.

Not a bad deal, really.

Upon The Family’s reunion, I asked The Dada how he enjoyed his time alone:

The Mama: (to The Dada) Did you like having a nice, quiet house?

The Dada: (nods)

Alice: Now there’s lot’s of chit-chat and stinky smells. (to The Mama) Toot in your own room!

Heh heh. Why, um… Kids say the darndest things…
