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...
