5. So the biggest crime someone can commit in our house now-a-dayz is waking Tootsie Roll up when he's sleeping.  Cupcakes knows this better than anyone.  So she was pretending to sleep on the living room floor when I was holding Awake TR, and he made a noise so Cupcakes pretend woke up.  As a joke I said, "TR, you woke up your sister!"  So Cupcakes came to his defense saying, "It was an accident.  He didn't mean to wake me up." 4.
