Cookie: May I invite Isla over for a playdate?
Cookie: Are you sure our place is clean enough?
(Don’t tell Mommy I said this, but she’s the hoarder. I’m bad about not throwing things out, but she takes it to another level. Jeff Foxworthy said that you may be a redneck if you have a set of salad bowls made by Cool Whip. We have a set of blue toddler snack trays made by Gerber and another green set made by Sprout. It’s not that we don’t have porcelain dishes and bowls; it’s, as your mother puts it, “a waste of good plastic.” Don’t tell Mommy, but I do try to send them to the recycling bin whenever she’s not looking. It has nothing to do with having one less thing to wash.)
