Apparently my kids did not get the daylight savings time memo. So they have been waking up at the exact same time they did before the time change... except now it is an hour earlier! Oh joy!
So I go to bed an hour later each night, and then wake up an hour earlier at the behest of my little people. I would like to say that I am getting more done because I am now awake another hour a day, but unfortunately the only thing I am getting is more tired!
Apparently I am not the only one! Since nap time takes longer to arrive than it used to, little Eli is completely exhausted and practically begging to take a nap. Then he crashes HARD.
I was afraid that I would wake him up by taking his picture, but I don't think a marching band could have roused him!
Jonah has not taken naps since the beginning of the year, but once or twice lately he has been so tired that he took a nap too.
This particular afternoon we were trying to wake Jonah up, but all to no avail. Honey Daddy even lifted up his arm, only to have it flop back down on the covers without even a flinch from Jonah. Apparently my boys play hard and sleep even harder!
This afternoon I actually had an hour to myself when both the boys were sleeping... at the same time! The house was SO quiet... it was lovely.
So maybe Daylight Saving Time isn't all bad... but it still doesn't make much sense to me.
When told the reason for daylight savings time the old Indian said…
‘Only a white man would believe that you could cut a foot off the top of a blanket and sew it to the bottom of a blanket and have a longer blanket.’
