Big E: The "E" is for ENERGY

Last night I tucked Big E into bed at 7:30, right on schedule.

I didn't see him snort like ten lines of coke before bedtime, but maybe he did.

Over the next four hours, Big E devoured his learning books.  He was in his room, laid out on the floor, quietly working.  He wasn't disrupting my much needed mommy time, so I wasn't super upset.

We watched the Falcons lose ANOTHER game and decided it was time for bed. Like the Energizer Bunny, Big E was still going.

IF YOU DON'T SLEEP, YOU WON'T GROW.

This nugget of info didn't bother him at all.  He's totally kosher with always being the shortest person within a 50 mile radius.

YOU HAVE TO GET UP IN 7.5 HOURS FOR SCHOOL!

He gave me a mildly annoying shoulder shrug.  But finally agreed to turn in for the night.  And that was the last we heard of him until the morning.

To prove our point, Mr. Yoy and I woke Big E up at precisely 7AM with a rousing performance.

RISE AND SHINE AND GIVE GOD YOUR GLORY, GLORY!

RISE AND SHINE AND GIVE GOD YOUR GLORY, GLORY!

We went on and on with clapping and foot stomping.  It was quite spiritual.

Big E did not find this humorous.  Nor did he enjoy when Mr. Yoy stripped his bed with Big E still occupying it.

Tonight I tucked Big E into bed at 7:30, right on schedule.

I have heard nary a peep from him.

Life lesson learned.
