Dear Maura,

I love you.  You’re adorable.  But could you not wake up and cry out in pretend “startled to be awake”?  Sure, the imagination is very cute, and it gave you giggles. But we are weaning down your seizure meds, and hearing you shriek made me run.

It is almost cute though that you’re still giggling over your stunt, I’ll give you that.


Your mother who is on high alert for any unusual behaviors because of said med weaning.

P.S. – can you let me finish my coffee before you proceed with any more shenanigans?  Thanks.
