Thoughts I Had While Cleaning Maisie's Room Today

  1. At what age do kids start cleaning their own rooms?
  2. Why does Maisie sleep with a giant jar of jalapeños ?
  3. Is there really a ghost living in the closet, like she claims?
  4. This is where all the coffee mugs went
  5. Remember when Maisie used to pretend her room was a tax auditor's office?
  6. This is where all the chargers went
  7. Remember when I painted this room yellow because it was more a more "grown up" color?
  8. Is that a banana peel or charcoal?
  9. This is where all my cashmere sweaters went
  10. Remember when I painted this room lavender because it was a more "grown up" color?
  11. Is her wardrobe, made up almost exclusively of Mia Moretti hand-me-downs, helping or hindering her ability to fit in at school?
  12. Oh shit, what's under the bed
  13. Can I use social media to shame Maisie into keeping her room clean?
  14. Remember when I painted this room grey because it's a more "grown up" color?
