Spring Forward

I'm convinced that Daylight Saving Time was only invented to torture parents. Sure on the one hand it's been great that the girls have slept past 7am over the last few days. Getting them to GO to sleep is another story. Last night, as I was getting ready to put them in the bath, Sonya said to me,

"You know it's to early for our bath right?"

"What?" I asked.

"It's too early," she said again, and looked outside.

"Oh, because it's still light out, you mean?"

"Yeah, it's too early," she replied matter of factly.

"Well, it's actually not. It's the same time it always is when you take a bath, but now it's going to be lighter. Plus there's going to be more light when you go to bed too, because we changed the time on Sunday," I explained.

" Oh. Okay." This seemed to satisfy her.

Then she didn't fall asleep last night until almost 9pm. Yay. The worst part about all of this?They will get into this routine, get used to the time and going to bed with sunlight, then guess what happens in October? Stupid time change.

Maybe we should just move to Arizona.
