    Punctuation

    Hello what would you use in here after "sweetie"?

    She could finally fall asleep around 11 a.m. When she woke up, he shared the news with her. "Sweetie, Anna called. You passed the Board."

    Thank you.

    a comma is okay, since he would pause after that word... but the dialog should be a new paragraph and 'board' wouldn't be capitalized...
