'nothin at all' days

'nothing at all' days look like
your very first baby-sitting gig.

and they look like learning how to scrub in the kitchen,
and making a fair amount of money for it.

they look like bein' hungry for a tostada,
and being told your mama can't right now....
but that she'll help you to do it, yourself.

and learning how to clean up, afterward.

'nothin at all' means keeping track of
the laundry and the scrubbing,
so that come payday, you get all the money that you've earned.

it means hanging out in your favorite tree,

and a friend coming over.

and it means having time for sleepovers on a tuesday night.

...'nothin at all' means there's time enough for everything.
