45 minutes -- time it takes to get you ready and out the door (this amount of time includes the Dressing of Dolls).
5 minutes -- time it took to convince you that yes--yes you CAN take care of yourself after you use the bathroom.
3 minutes -- length of time between the first and last bite of your mixed berry cereal bar (eaten in the car).
9 hours -- length of time you are away from us on weekdays -- too long.
1 hour -- bedtime ritual: puzzle, bedtime toast, dressing (you and the babies), brushing of teeth etc., book at bedside, song (Wouldn't It Be Loverly, sung by Yours Truly) and tucking in (with extra kisses).
11 hours -- about how long you'll sleep tonight.
Until we meet again, my love.
