E is for Energy

Dear Miss Esmé,
You are energy.
Sometimes I wonder what happened to my energy.  Should I get checked for hypothyrodism?  Is something else seriously wrong with me? 
Then I look at you whizzing by me (as you dilly dally), and I know exactly where all my energy went.
No matter what time I put you to bed, you compete each night with Pappa to see who can stay awake the longest.
Me?  I’m dead.  That’s all I got for you today.  G’night!

The Lord is everlasting; He never tires or wearies.  Wait on him, and you will run and not be weary…
I love you, my amazing, beautiful, clever, dilly-dallying, energized baby girl!
Your Mom
Each birthday, I write a letter to my baby girl.  This year, the year of the amazing 5-year-mark, I’ll be working from A to Z.

Hi mommy of a very energy filled little 5 year old. You said it right. You always enjoyed your rest, even when you were a 5 year old. But Miss Esme must have gotten some other genes too.
Love you all. Grandma

Why is it the relationship of energy to kids and moms seems to be in inverse proportion? Hence my caffeine abuse....
