Just like when you have company!

I was recently discussing accidentals with one of my students.  She's 8 years old.  I was explaining that an accidental stays the same through the entire measure and then changes back when the measure is completed at the barline.  This was her response:

"...Just like when you have company!  Everything changes while they're at your house, but changes back to normal when they leave!" 

What a great explanation!   I'd say she understood completely, wouldn't you?
