What do we do now?

Well, you experienced your first power outage - while you were awake. And I wouldn't want to entertain you like that very often. It went out around 5:30 and didn't come back on until close to 7. While we killed the first ten minutes finding and lighting candles, you just wanted to watch Elmo and incessantly pointed to the t.v., then when we 'wouldn't' appease you, you reached longingly for the CD player to at least play you a familiar song... Books were out because we could barely see, so after some good flashlight-pointing time, we decided to hit the tub. You know, in case the power stayed out for a long time, we could use the hot water before the tank cooled off. While not exactly the romantic bath by candlelight you would expect, it sure passed the time. Well, only because I eventually got in the tub with you since just having me taking up most of the bathtub room seems to keep you interested. It's like swimming in a very small pool with a dolphin and a goldfish.
