So… what do you think? Do I do too much? Not enough? Am I wasting too much time in my day that could be better spent? I know there were two blocks of time there where I spent a bit too much time on the internet.
Do you have any tips or advice for getting more done? Help!
Kid Funny of the Day:
The princess is on the toilet calling out to me desperately, “Muuuuum! Muuuuum! Cooooome heeeere! Muuuuum!” I rush in and ask her what’s wrong. She looks up at me calmly from the toilet and says, “I picking my boogers.” Which she then demonstrates.
