After I got done explaining that Daddy was working late so he wouldn't have to go to work tomorrow.
Elliott: "Dave and Mary [Imaginary Mary and her Faithful Husband] are working on Rachel's house."
Elliott: "Do you remember Rachel?
Me: "Umm, no?"
Elliott: "She's Dave's great aunt."
Mary and her ever-expanding social circle sure keep us busy. Other people hope to keep up with the Jones; we can never hope to keep up with Mary. If we have two bathrooms, Mary has five. If we drive 3 hours, Mary drives 10 hours to get to her grandparents. Four kids? Chump change to Mary. Her and Dave have 37+.
In non-Mary related news, today is the last day of school for Cheyenne. I guess it's a tradition for a lot of moms in our neighborhood to take the kids to the beach on the lake on the last day of school. Cheyenne has a lazy mommy that doesn't feel like taking four kids to the beach, but thankfully her friend Tess' mom is more ambitious. So Cheyenne is getting sun-baked in celebration, and I am trying to decide what to have for our Daddy-less supper. Maybe I should ask Mary for advice.
