Of sleep.

I read somewhere that the benefits of sleep come in fifteen minute segments. Sleeping less than fifteen minutes doesn't do you any good. But don't tell this to tired parents.

I remember thinking the same thing, from the child's perspective. "Please, mom, just 5 more minutes."
So much in just a few words! Nice job.

I so remember this. So vivid the memory. All I wanted was more sleep.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs to you and tons of scritches to Miss Lucy. ♥♥♥

Brings back memories of little sons sitting on the end of the bed on Saturdays watching cartoons while I slept "just a little longer" before making pancakes and eggs.
