I normally hate Mondays..

That is so sweet. Brought tears to my eyes. My husband used to sing to my daughter, just hold her, rock her and sing her to sleep. Until she was 2.5 years, too heavy and had a sibling. He would look for songs, keep a ear out and rack his brains about what song he'd sing tonight. She would pick the song and he would sing it on replay for hours, she would refuse to sleep because she wanted to hear him sing. Then when the son went through a brief period of sleeping issues, he rocked him and sang him to sleep. It was bliss.
Oh and congrats!!!

"But whose cat is it, daddy?"
"Mmm.. ah, it's Schrödinger's cat."
And so a 4 year old got an introduction to quantum mechanics. In the end we decided that as we couldn't see it, the cat might be in either one of her pockets. We also couldn't tell if it was asleep (aka dead, I know, I know) or awake, but it was definitely a girl cat and her name was Mandy .
