On Friday afternoon, it was cold, dark, and rainy. We were just hanging out in the living room, waiting until it was time to go pick up the Boy from a playdate, waiting until the Girl's best friend arrived for a sleepover.
I left the room to do something--maybe go to the bathroom, maybe get some socks--I don't remember what. While I was putzing around, I thought how great it would be if we had a fireplace.
I went back into the livingroom, and then there was this:
Me: You know what would be so great right now?
Girl (without skipping a beat and without a question mark): A fireplace.
