Our rented home has light beige carpet.
WHY DO LANDLORDS DO THAT?
Anyway, I make everybody leave their shoes at the door to hopefully forestall the expensive deep cleaning such a carpet requires.
Yesterday, I was standing on the vinyl flooring right at the front door and tying my shoes. The door was open and my four year old son had his slip-ons on and was trying to get out.
He said: Mom. You have a big butt.
I said (in a slightly annoyed tone): Well, sorry about that, I'm trying to get my shoes on here. Go around me.
He went around me, got down the steps and came back to say: Mom, I like your butt!
Sigh. Well, we may have honesty down, but it seems we need to do lessons on tact.
