I Curse Thee, Daylight Savings Time Change

My kids are not adjusting to the new time, therefore neither am I. Despite going to bed at the usual bedtime, Una woke up this morning at 6:15. Lucky me! In truth, I'd already been up with Duet for an hour so Una's emergence from her bedroom was not my initial wake up call. My mom says that the fall daylight savings time change is her favorite day of the year because she gets an extra hour of sleep. She must have started saying that after we kids were old enough to get up on our own and fix ourselves breakfast without waking her first. After these past 2 mornings, I'm starting to wonder how old Una needs to be before I can put her in charge of the breakfast duties for her and Duet while I snooze away.

I am so sorry. That doesn't sound like fun at all. I was supposed to work Saturday night, so therefore would have had to work for an extra hour. Too bad I didn't. Then I would have gotten overtime I bet! Yeah, you're mom probably doesn't remember the times that you kids were not adjusted to the time change. It's funny how they have a way for forgetting things like that isn't it? I'm sure Una would be more than happy to take over the breakfast duties, but call me crazy when I say that I think she's still a bit too young. Could you imagine her at the stove cooking eggs with a big smile on her face? LOL. The time will come soon enough my dear.

It is the best when they can make breakfast by themself's. Sorry you have not been getting any ZZZ's. By the way I have some winter things for your kidos.

dodge party--i'd be happy if she could just handle getting the cereal and pouring milk into her bowl by herself.
