Sleeping is taking too long but mommy says I have to sleep or my birthday will never come…I love my birthday! Birthdays are the best. Last year mommy made pancakes and waffles and toast — that’s her favorite. Maybe if I ask Mommy how long I need to slee- no, mommy said sleep.

I peeked open one eye but our room was just as dark as the back of my eyelids. I couldn’t see her but I knew she was there. Our birthday I corrected myself with a smile and closed my eyes again.

Ok sleep…sleep…SLEEEP! AGH! I’m too excited!!
