There's no place like home... Of course, mine is 'happy, happy, happy, happy, must be happy, happy, happy, happy...'

I'll be careful not to intrude if you 5s will define it for me, it might be a little different for each person. My 5 is telling me what he expects more often, it's a good idea if you explain your boundaries clearly, especially with 7s. Because we don't think and feel exactly the same way, communication is needed.
