I take it back

I've just remembered what I DON'T like about spring. The Kraken, ever sensitive to small changes in her environment, does not deal well with daylight savings time. Normally asleep by 7:45, she is now aimlessly slamming her legs against the wall in a slow, funerary dirge-like rhythm. It is almost 9 PM. Yes, I know that's just almost 8 PM where she's used to being, but trust me. She was slumped in my arms while reading her final story this evening. She's bloody tired. And stubborn. And I've just remembered that she uses daylight as her cue to wake for the day, meaning I'll be spending the next four months getting up at 5:45.

All I have to say garden better be pretty effing beautiful.

Chaos? They are not thrilled either. And that messes with the Mama's happyhappy's. I sure hope this "early daylight savings" pays off.

do not despair. My lovely two, who have, for unknown reasons, taken to waking between 5:30 and 6:15 the last few weeks, slept until 6:30 the first day of daylight sabings and 7:30 this morning. And the angels sang.

It usually takes Buddy a week to become acclimated to the time change. Hang in there!
