A genius friend of mine, who empathizes with my situation of having just gotten my kids on a relatively sane sleep schedule, suggested we all just boycott Daylights Saving Time.
With the clocks all falling back an hour yesterday (and the effect being my day now starting an hour earlier according to those clocks) I am tempted to follow her suggestion.
However, as a reasonable person, I am willing to negotiate.
Here are my terms:
If the clocks can fall back far enough to erase most of the college football that happened this weekend – say back to noon on Saturday, before UNC and Alabama both lost – then I’ll go willingly into the new schedule.
I a mom, which means I love my sleep.
But even at the new 5am, I am a fan, which means we can work something out.
