Clear Blue Water by Karen Montague-Reyes for November 09, 2007
Ivy: Mom, can Jenna spend the night? Eve: Not tonight, sweetie. Ivy: Why not?! Eve: Because your room's filthy, your Dad's working late, Seth's being difficult, I've got 9 load of unfolded laundry spread out on the table, and we need groceries. Ivy: Can I spend the night her house, then? Eve: Sure! Once your room passes my inspection and your homework's done! Girl: I can't believe your mom said no! Ivy: I know! She's so unreasonable!
