Random Venting: Headless Baby and Time

Did this day kick any one else’s butt? It sure did ours. It also felt like it went on and on, forever. It seemed like bedtime would never get here. The kids were all off all day too. They didn’t know if they were coming or going, sleeping or eating, playing or napping.
This is Jake at about 10:30am. He just couldn’t go anymore and fell asleep in the chair. Of course for his body it was really 11:30am and we should have been eating lunch and then going down for a nap. Poor baby!

Stupid time change! I just don’t get it. Why do we need the time change any way? Because being a parent isn’t hard enough, there are now 2 guaranteed days a year where our young kids are going to be cranky and off.

I used to love the fall time change, an extra hour of sleep, meant that I could stay up an extra hour later. Now it means the kids have to be up an extra hour later and I will be awake at a seemly ungodly hour. What it really comes down to is that this is cutting into my mommy time and that is just not right.

The kids also seemed a bit more mischievous today than normal. Getting into and doing more things that they shouldn’t. Hayden especially. Here is a sample of his handy work.
Hayden: “Look, Mom! Look, I ripped the head off the baby.” (not even trying to hide it)

Me: “Hayden, that is not very nice. You broke Claire’s baby. Why did you do that?”

Hayden: “I ripped the head off because I wanted to see the skeleton and I had to look inside the neck to see it”

Me: speechless. How does one really argue with that?

I am just glad that tomorrow is a new day and hopefully things will be back to normal or at least as normal as it gets around here, headless baby and all.
