Since the boy had the day off from school and coincidentally it was his birthday, I thought I’d take the day off and spend the day with him. But I ended up working the entire morning, starting at 6:00 AM. I cancelled most of my “day off,” which included a scheduled morning workout with Chris G (sorry Chris G), in order to take care of a bunch of work-related stuff.
I planned a playdate with the boy’s best friend in the afternoon, so I was scrambling to get all of my work done beforehand. The boy could barely contain himself for his afternoon playdate and he was getting kind of wiggy, so I asked him if he would sit in a box for an hour or so while I finished my work.
Amazingly, he complied with my request.
