  And I’d do every second of it again in a heartbeat. I love very much, my wife. j.s.

Somno WAY!

  SHE SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!   We’re talking 10pm to 7am here, people!  And sure, when she awoke she was as ravenous as a stoned Dom DeLuise in a nacho factory… But SHE STILL SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!… Read More
