- Eating: Sausage McMuffin for breakfast on-the-go, Five Guys cheeseburger for lunch, and leftover sushi (yes, leftover sushi, I know) for dinner. Not the healthiest food, but it was fast and it was good. At lunch, I gave Sammy a sip of my Coke and her eyes almost bugged out of her head and her face turned completely red. Then she asked for another sip.
- Sleeping: We had some nap-time troubles and Sammy ended up sleeping on my chest. I've said it before and I'll say it again: bliss!
- Bathing: Showers are fun when they are accompanied by such sayings as THERE'S WATER IN YOUR BUTT! And, I NEED A NEW SOAP. A YELLOW SOAP. I NEED A YELLOW YELLOW YELLOW SOAP. I NEED A YELLOW SOAP NOW, MOMMY. OH, THANK YOU, MOMMY.

Eating, Sleeping, and Bathing
If you're going to be a professional parent, you really must learn to love the Little Things. Luckily, I have learned. I know because I enjoyed this day. This day when I got up, served breakfast, cleaned up breakfast, took Sammy to school, did the grocery shopping, made hard-boiled eggs, picked up Sammy, took her to lunch, got her down for a nap, took a nap, took a shower, helped Sammy take a shower, made dinner, ate dinner, and cleaned up from dinner. I also spent about 20 minutes reading, 20 minutes just playing with Sammy, and 20 minutes on the computer, and I'll probably read and watch TV for a couple of hours tonight. Really, that was my whole day. I did nothing else. I never even got a chance to look at my to-do list. All I accomplished was eating, sleeping, and bathing. If every day were like this I'd slit my wrists with boredom, but usually there is more time for other pursuits, so once in a while a day like this is a nice break.
