Sorry Mrs. F, I feel the complete opposite: light in the morning? Hell yes. Walking to school in the dark is just plain wrong. Standard time never should have been messed with.
geesh - i don't need winter time, don't want it either! ...and let me tell you, the outlook of having 6.5 weeks of PTO interrupted of 9 days of working doesn't help much either right now: need.time.off!!!
Getting dark so early does at least one thing in the Smitty household: it proves that out house is not big enough for what The Platoon would normally be doing to one another outside.
-amy,I will say, that mornings are much more productive... but... Baby is just hitting a serious wall around 4-5 and it has been rough. Plus I just think it's depressing to have it get so dark right when we're finally done with everything :(Brina,I hope you get some time off!Smitty,flash light tagThe girls and I have been huge fans of a tag/hide and go seek game involving our safety vests and flashlights... once you're lit up you're it... it goes fast and is less frustrating for Charlotte who doesn't have the patience to hide for too long. Ikea has safety vest for $5 in the kids dept. Of course there is probably only 2 more weeks before it's too fucking cold to play...
Today, Eli asked at 5:30!!!! when we were going upstairs (as in, to bed). I was all.. in TWO HOURS.
Mrs. F. -I have to admit to settling in with the kids to watch a show between 8-9PM, and falling asleep minutes after it's started. Every. Night. This. Week.Yup, now I'm my Mother.
