Daddy then preceded to complete the bath, put the pajamas on, and read the book. I still put the bug in bed, because that’s what I do.

What did 6:45pm bedtime and Daddy helping out allow me to do?

Caught up on kitchen duty.

The power of teamwork. I hope it can last.

Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
