I'm reading this as my daughter (in a hat) picks up the ornaments her older brother knocked all over the living room while wearing a used wrapping paper tube as a tail during a "How Animals Eat Their Food" party (youtube video they're all obsessed with). He is wearing pants, but his younger brother isn't. And it's not even a "school" day!!!
