Luckily, it wasn't too bad, but she did still ask, "whatcha doing?" in her innocent 3 year old voice. Because obviously, we weren't sleeping. Before I could even register what was happening, "the dude" calmly says, "We were doing the Chicken dance." (O_o)

THAT is a story to remember! I hope you have it written down for her... or SB'd.. that would be an interesting photo of you and "the dude" for a "layout"....

Love it!
