I’m seeing a serious problem when Emmett returns from his Mom’s house

I knew last night’s 13 hours of sleep was too good to be without a kick in the gut. At the time of writing, it’s about 2am and Emmett is still wide awake.  I’m so tired and really, really, really want to go to sleep but I can’t…
