No rest for Mrs. Yoy

This morning we went to Zoo Atlanta.  After pushing the Yoys around in the double stroller all morning, I was one tired Mrs. Yoy.

Little E fell asleep on the way home and transferred well into his crib.  Big E, not so much.

I put Cars on the TV and informed Big E that mommy was going to take a quick nap.  I don't, in general, advocate using the TV as a babysitter, but the heat and my exhaustion were affecting my state of mind.

Here come my eyelids...

Anyway, I dozed off for a few minutes when suddenly there was a flurry of activity going on right inside the curve of my body lying on the couch.  I peeked open one eye to see what was up.

Big E had brought a puzzle and dumped all of the pieces on me.

He then proceeded to put the puzzle together right there.  He kept asking me if I was awake but I played dead.  He caught me peeking one time and it was game over.

Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom? Mom?

It only stopped when I responded to him.




So much for my nap.  The bedtime countdown is on...
I wish this was me
