That’s just the kind of mother she is. I hope she goes back to sleep after she sees that everything is as it should be. But I’ll probably never know. Even though she and I are very close (which is how I know she wakes up when I do), I’ll probably never ask if she gets back to sleep, and she probably doesn’t know that I know she wakes up. It’s not the kind of thing you need to talk about. Huh, I wonder how this dynamic played out when Jessi got a little older (or does she move somewhere else? I forget who goes where). Once she's in high school would her mom make her poke her head in at night just to make sure she got back safe? I had a lot of freedom even when I was much older but my parents would always be like "text us when you get back"! (Of course, different eras/technologies.)

Dawn announced that she’d heard that if you were able to touch your nose with your tongue, it meant that eventually (like when you were eighteen) you would need a very big bra. My, um, sources refute this.

“The opening of Copernicus,” replied Becca. Now there's a ballet!
