Morning: finger painting, milk & cookies, nap. Afternoon: building blocks, roly poly, musical chairs, lunch. Evening: cartoons, dinner, bedtime story, nighty night.

Me: “Yeah hi boss. I’m planning on working from early in the morning until late in the evening. Don’t worry though, I will make many calls and have many meetings. Sound good?”
Boss: “Pack your s***.”
