Home sweet home

"What's a mansion?" Phoebe asked.

"It's a big house," I said. "A very big house." I groped about for an example that would be relevant. "It's like...like the house in Home Alone. A very big, fancy, nice house with lots of rooms."

"Is our house a mansion?" Phoebe asked.

Mallory scoffed. "Our house is NOT a mansion. Our house is the OPPOSITE of a mansion. Our house is IN EVERY WAY the opposite of mansion."

I think she needn't have been quite so emphatic about it.

I don't know...my kids think every house that has stairs is a mansion. So there you go. :)
