Sleep at home. I've almost got an empty nest and they still have 2 and 3 years before college!

Stay where I put them. I miss those pre-mobile days...

I would have to say nothing, we just found out that we are expecting our second so I guess although I gave up a lot with my first now that he is over two, I think I am going to be getting all that stuff again!

I really like this list. I miss Sesame Street and snuggling with my Tukey in the a.m. watching Curious George. And they're starting to not need me so much, and that is painful.

Ami turns 4 the 30th... and you have succeeded in making me cry. But also smile at so many wonderful memories. TY
