Can you tell I am so not a fan of this? We live in Maine and it gets dark EARLY. Today it was pitch black here in Maine at 4:45pm....HELLOOOOOOOOOO. What the heck am I supposed to do with my three kids at 430pm in the dark? Thankfully, the big girls have dance class on Mondays and Mairead has swim on Thursday afternoons, but......come on!
My kids usually rest and/or nap from 130ish-330ish (sometimes earlier, sometimes later), so when they wake up from rest, the sun is setting and it is dusk. Oh my, I am so not ready for this. I want it to be light until 8pm so we can eat ice cream and go for a walk around the block after dinner, or play in the backyard, hell, I'll take an hour or two of sunshine after rest so we can get outside and let out some energy before dinner.
Today also felt like the day just dragged on and on and on....and well, you get the drift. And boy! am I tired. We have been putting the girls to bed later and later for the last few days to keep them from getting up super early, so I am praying tomorrow morning, they are not up too early. I am not a lover of mornings, I guess why I am more of a fan of it being dark until 8am rather than at 4pm.
Anyways....that is my rant for the day. I'm not a complainer, but I am being one today. Anyone else feel tortured by this time change? I say keep it in Daylight savings and let the kids play outside in the afternoons! It will do a body good! And it will keep us parents sane!
