    I love that! My answer would be similar. Switch “son” to “daughter”. And I guess i should work my husband in there somewhere…

      I haven’t really slept in 18 months so it doesn’t make me happy lol.

      • July 14, 2011 Dominique

        I’m happy to get abt 3hr uninterrupted sleep.. haven’t been sleeping for 7yrs and my #3 doesn’t seem to be able to sleep through soon. She still wakes 3-4 times a night at 10 mths.

    Glad your son and friends make you happy! I see you chose the simplest prompt this week. I was tempted to but went with the joke instead.
