Big E was in his playroom playing with his train set. I left him in there to change Little E's diaper and change him into his jammies.
Little E had other plans. I got him into a clean diaper without incident, but the pajamas were a different story.
Every time I stuck one of his feet into one leg of the bottoms, he would twist over and pull his foot out. He did this for about five minutes.
I started laughing out of frustration. Then I started sweating. LITTLE E! I yelled out his name. He looked at me with the most serious of stares. I pleaded with him.
Please let me put your jammies on! Please!
Around the time I'm hitting record levels of frustration with Little E, I hear Big E start yelling something about his trains.
Big E came running up the stairs yelling something over and over.
THERE'S A BEE ON MY TRAIN TRACK!
COME SEE IT, MOMMY!
He is now rattling the gate and yelling at me. See Ma'am, I've never seen that happen...
I put Little E on the floor and open the gate to let Big E in. But, you see, he doesn't want in. He wants me to come down and look at the stupid bee.
First of all, I know for a fact it is not a bee. We forever have a random fly in our house. It's never the same fly, but there is always one. Just flying around. Annoying the hell out of everyone.
I saw it earlier in the playroom.
So, I'm not really concerned that there is a bee harassing my kid in his playroom. But for the record, even if it was a bee, there was no way I was going down there to check it out. I would lock myself in my room and wait for Mr. Yoy to come home and save the day.
But Big E won't let it go. So I'm back on the floor trying to wrestle Little E into his pajamas and I'm about to lose it.
Big E is hovering over me whining about the bee and his train. As a bonus, I noticed that Big E pooped while he was playing downstairs.
Good lord! Everyone stop talking, moving, pooping, etc. and let me do my job!
I finally get Little E into his pajamas and get him into bed. No book tonight, Mrs. Yoy is done.
Ditto for Big E.
And now, the sweet sound of silence.
There was no bee, but if there was, it would be a friendly bee, like this smiley guy.
