5)Allergies – Both Kids suffer from it. Bad.

4)Having a hard time getting the kids to bed at night, since it is still so light outside.

“It’s not dark enough yet”

The days had already been getting longer and longer…it wasn’t getting dark until like 7pm. Now with daylight savings thrown into the mix, for the next 6 months or so, nighttime won’t start till after 8pm.

I don’t hate daylight savings time (I like most aspects of it…) BUT I cannot seem to get up in the morning ’cause 6am or 7am is still deep darkness. The kids and the hubby have trouble getting up too. We all overslept this morning – I was frantically waking everyone up at 7:50am…(but really my body was thinking it was still 6:50am…) it is all so confusing.

For the last couple of weeks, Big T has been a little confused by how bright it’s been outside when we pick them up from the child care center around 5:45pm. Poor kid is about to get even more confused. Apparently, it has to be dark before he can go home.

In honor of daylight saving and impending warmer weather…
