Sam lives life far closer to the edge than I usually give him credit for. An example of the trials he endures came yesterday during his bath. Steve recently purchased a different variety of the same brand of children's shampoo than we usually use. Sam did survive the transition (brave little soldier!), but requested that we go back to the old shampoo variety because, and I quote, "I'm just not used to wild changes like that."
Yes, my son described a change in the color of his shampoo bottle as a "wild change" barely survivable by the bravest of individuals. It's a good thing that Steve's his primary caregiver, interjecting delightful spontaneity into every day - if Sam had his routine-oriented mother around for the majority of each day, he'd be doomed.
