Well, I just love daylight savings time in the fall. That extra hour is SO wonderful, and when you wake the next morning because your daughter is telling you it is time to get up and you look your husbands clock and it says 7:15 and you tell your daughter to go play because Mommy is sleeping and you roll over and go back to sleep for another 20 minutes and then you look at YOUR clock and you realize that it is actually 8:35...that is craziness. I don't know if that is a good thing that happened or a bad thing, but it was cool that the kids slept in till 8:15!
The only downside is that now it gets dark SO early. Like super, super early. It is almost 5, and the sun is pretty much gone. That severely cuts down on park playing time, BUT it also helps fool the kids when we want to put them to bed earlier than normal (which in this house means 8:00 rather than 9:30) because it's dark, and that must mean bedtime! Right? Right.
And can I just say you would be surprised what sort of dinners one can come up with from a pantry of random things when you are postponing a trip to the grocery store. I am pretty proud of Keith and I for the things we have come up with these last few days.
