The little things make life kinda better. Like being granted the golden ticket of "sleeping in" while the dad and the tot rake leaves in the early morning. FYI: He has his helmet on because apparently there was some switching between raking and biking.
The rules: Daddy fills up the wheelbarrow then Ash fills up his wagon. All the while mommy is sleeping soundly upstairs. Now THOSE are rules to live by.
And then you dump. Which in Ash and Daddy's case means dumping leaves, and in Mommy's case means having a double tall nonfat pumpkin spice latte dumped on the bedside table just in time to start the work day.
Sometimes when things kinda suck they also kinda rock. And right now, they're kinda rockin.
