My Day in Music Video

At least the bee girl could make me breakfast. It's the least she could do for prancing around in that ridiculous outfit. Plus, I will need my energy to chase my eighteen month old around the house. She never gets tired, so I will be left saying like the first line of the chorus of this song:

Sometime after lunch, I'll be singing this song to get my daughter to take a nap:

She will eventually wake up and we'll repeat the first part of the day all over again. And by the end of the day, I will feel like the chorus of this song:
