I never had a good relationship with you and I don't intend to start now.
I have 4 children ages 9 and under. We just got into this GREAT bedtime routine. Bedtime at 8pm for 3, 7 and 8 year olds. Bedtime at 9 for the 9 year old. It is a dream. The house is quiet, the expectations are set and the flow is seamless. The TV is on at 8 for my waste of time trash shows that I may or may not watch depending upon who I am talking to at the time...
Mom and teenager are happy!! IN THE DARK.... AT 8PM
Then BOOM you come like a thief in the night (LITERALLY!)...robbing me of one hour of my life as a mom. You are cruel. What am I supposed to do tonight at 8pm when it is still pushing daylight and I am trying to turn on the season finale of the Bachelor?
You can answer the questions for me, you meanie...Here are a few you may get...
Why are we going to bed so early? It is still light out.
Can we stay up because it is so light out? I can't fall asleep when it is still light out.
Can I have a snack? I'm extra hungry from playing more.
Can I play outside longer? It's still light.
What time is it? It's still light outside.
Daylight savings time, you are mean to families. You ruin my flow...my routine...my fantastic schedule I have with the shorter the people living in my house.
Yesterday, my whole family fell asleep in the afternoon just trying to get used to you and today , my 2 boys are throwing up (OK, so that doesn't have to do with you, but I added it in here anyway cuz I am THAT mad and irrational and tired... cuz I lost an hour)
Here's a little video I saw on my friend's Facebook page yesterday. Yes, I ASK the question...why is this still a thing???
OK, I am not actually that upset, I just wanted to make a quick blog post to try to make someone laugh. I will deal with this the same way I dealt with it last year. I will complain, be tired and enjoy the playtime after dinner while I sit on the deck with my teenager and listen to music...
Happy almost spring, everyone!!!
Looking forward to some lush greenery making an appearance in my yard soon...
