The kidlets and I run out of the van, and knock on the door. She opens the door, and she immediately comments to the kids, "I bet your house never looks like this!" Both my migits, in unison, "NO." Wow. Rude. I keep an organized home, and while we are playing, it can get messy. (However, only in the bedrooms, since toys are not to be brought out of bedrooms.)
