Over a week has gone by since we set the clocks ahead one hour, and I'm still dealing with the ramifications.
Tonight, I put the Yoys to bed around 7:30. I feel like that is a respectable bedtime for a two and four year old.
Big E thought differently. His closing arguments in his case against it not being bedtime went well beyond ten minutes. The daylight at bedtime thing is really rocking his world.
Finally, Big E requested a phone call to Uncle Yoy to verify my claim that bedtime had arrived.
Uncle Yoy confirmed that it was indeed bedtime.
For the record, I wore this kid out today. Two hours at the botanical gardens where he operated on only one speed: Olympic Sprinter.
After that, we headed to the mall where he lunched and then spent an additional 1.5 hours in the new play area.
He nodded off as we drove home and I know for a fact he was up in the middle of the night playing as he woke me up at 6AM to tuck him back in. And his bedroom light was on.
And still, I cannot get this kid to peacefully go to sleep.
Any suggestions? Does he need a satin sleep mask? Do people even use those anymore?

Hi folks! A quick note from Mrs. Yoy as I know it's been awhile. For those that know me personally, you know that I've been very vocal in unsuccessfully convincing the Cobb County School board to change their COVID policies, which to this day, remain a steaming pile of sh*t. We follow zero health guidelines and figuring out the quarantine policy is akin to solving that math problem from Good Will Hunting. I will be publishing the letters I've sent to the board and Superintendent over the last 18 days of school. I've heard back from my representative, who is lovely, and my pediatric dentist who also serves on the board, but it's been crickets from the voting block of four and the Superintendent, Chris Ragsdale. Apparently, he's too busy pumping iron and self-tanning. Anyway, enjoy. HAPPY FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! (E-mail sent on August 2, 2021) Good morning from East Cobb!

Good morning from East Cobb! I am following up on an email I sent yesterday morning, to which I received zero responses. As a long time resident, I am writing you this morning to plead with you to reconsider the mask policy for Cobb County schools this year. I’ve been speaking with many parents and we are stressed and saddened by the lack of consideration and communication from the board regarding the recent surge of Covid. In case you wanted to know, I can also see the future. And in two weeks when we are all at home, virtual again, with sick kids, teachers, bus drivers and others in quarantine, I will be thinking of you and your total disregard for the health of our children and our families. Look, we all make judgment mistakes. We all have a crazy family member spreading conspiracy theories. But we don’t let these people and/or the internet comments section guide our work decisions. Gosh, I can’t imagine if I let my dad’s view of our income tax system influence how I prepared tax r
Today Big E told a lady in the mall that he threw up in his crib. She gave him an odd look and asked him to repeat himself. No need for repeating, I knew exactly what he said. Why he is still talking about this, I'm not sure. It was three months ago. It hasn't happened since, I'm pretty sure Mr. Yoy and I cleaned up the entire mess. Move on, Big E. Next topic, please.
