The other evening, Youngest was checking to see whether the baked potatoes were cooked, and needed an oven glove. They live on the shelf over the Range, which is just within the reach of the Shorties in this household! Youngest stretched to reach the oven gloves and then complained that she must be shrinking because it was a farther stretch than normal.
Or perhaps I had moved the shelf?
Don't be daft.
Or...wait for it...the walls had stretched!
No! No! She had it! The floors were SINKING!!!
Would sinking floors be a problem in your house?????!
