Awww Monday: No Nap Needed. Maybe.

Awww Monday is hosted by Sandee, of Comedy Plus.

Join us every Monday for Awww...Mondays.  Post a picture that makes you say Awww... and that it.

Make sure you get the code from Sandee's site, linked above, and leave a link to your post so we can visit you.  What better way to start the week than with a smile!

No matter the species, babies fight going to bed and to sleep.

No, I didn't come get in the box because I am sleepy!

Really I am not tired at all, I promise!
