Happiness courtesy of an email signature

My gmail email signature says the following:

Warning - Baby on Lap!
Please excuse the short and sweet email, and any typing errors.

Several people have emailed me to say that they love it, including the wonderful Gretchen Rubin. I emailed her to compliment her on her new book, "The Happiness Project" and in her reply she wrote:

Warning - Baby on Lap!
And I love your “baby on lap” warning! I laughed out loud.

This makes me happy, also the fact that I can still type with my baby on lap - just!
