The daycare is in a converted house about the same vintage as ours. There are 3 rooms downstairs converted into a single classroom with a galley kitchen for the two- and three-year-olds, and up a very steep flight of stairs, three bedrooms have been converted into a classroom and a kitchen for the four- and five-year-olds.

"Well, that is your opinion," Alec said. "I think Lauren's picture is beautiful. And yours is very nice too."
"No it's not, " retorted Lauren.
