morning ritual

My favorite way to start a day is a shower with my daughter, Ani, who is now 14 months old. She gets so excited when I turn on the water and tries to climb over the edge of the tub in her jammies. She usually wants me to hold her for a while, but once I start to feel the pressure of time, I'll set her down, she'll whine for a minute, and then go on to playing with the toys that constantly litter the floor of our tub. Almost inevitably, she'll find a comfy position to huddle in, and hum to herself for 5 minutes or so while I get cleaned up. She just sits down on the floor, humming two or three notes over and over, and it sounds so sweet to me. I'll take that over any concert I've ever been to.
