She looked around and said "are you sure a bomb didn't go off?". I don't think she meant much by it but I know she was a put off by all of the chaos and it stung. I just bit my tounge and thought about how her house will look when her kids get just a little older.
I'm sorry your dad was rude to you.

The way I see it, some peoples' homes may be cluttered with toys, while others have their hearts cluttered with mean feelings or mind cluttered with negative thoughts.
we recently toured the house of thirty-somethings neighbors', an old house, beautifully renovated and decorated. Over our many conversations, I know that they would trade it all for just 1 little bambino, and an airless apt.
Not too long ago, I heard on the radio a story about a boy with a neurologic condition which caused him to be , at the age of 4 y, just reaching 4 mo milestones. He had just learned to roll over. Imagine how his parents would feel if that boy could get up, run around, play with toys and make a mess.
