Today was a very good day, indeed.

I came home from school to find a napping family. I joined for some snuggles, which were thusly dispensed. I went outside to work a short time later, and they came with me. When I finished, we played on the swings and in the fort before going around the front of the house and writing with chalk. The picture came as part of The Boy's enthusiasm over rolling the ball down the slide - he got bouncy and excited and squeaky when we did it, to our joy.

Dinner came shortly thereafter (not before a minor meltdown over raisens, which The Boy can't have because of the potassium in dried fruit). He ate well, then tore around the house for a while.

Funny bit: he went into the bathroom and stood by the tub, saying, "Shower! Shower!" so, we stripped him down and let him play in the dry tub with his tub toys - until he proceeded to pee and poop at the same time. Heh.

He also drank from a plastic cup - a non-sippy cup, with no lid. Until he put the cup on our bed, with the expected result. I'm glad I don't have to sleep in the wet spot.

We packed him into the bedroom and he fell asleep. It was a good day.

That post just about cracked me up. Just a question, though. How come The Boy couldn't have a shower (or bath) like he wanted? No water? :-( Oh well, it sounds like a great day.
