Time changes are hell for parents. Whether you’re “springing forward” or “falling back,” changing the clocks SUCKS when you have kids.
When you spring forward you lose that precious hour between the kids’ bedtime and your bedtime. Those 60 vital minutes that help you hold on to your sanity are gone, baby, gone. The kids are still bouncing off the walls at 10PM screaming, “I’m not TIRRRREEEEDDDDD!” while you’re holding back tears of exhaustion begging for the day to JUST FREAKIN’ END already.
And when you try to get the kids up for school the next morning, they act like overtired frat boys who have been up partying all night, which, minus the beer bong, is essentially what kids “springing forward” are. Little, tired, up-too-late frat boys.
Then just when everyone is fully adjusted to the new time, SURPRISE!!! It’s time to move the clocks BACK and the fun starts all over again. The kids wake up at 5am when it’s still dark out. And as we all know, pre-dawn wakeups are a special kind of hell.
My son once asked me how we could get rid of daylight savings. He was rubbing his eyes and complaining that he was too “ti-ward” to get up. Which got me thinking. What if all of us exhausted, cranky moms banded together and started a campaign to stop the insanity of time changes? Put an end to the madness? So I’m announcing my MATC: Mothers Against Time Changes campaign! Let’s put an end to time changes, one minute at a time! Post this on your Facebook page and STOP time changes for-evah!!!!!!!
PS: I’m joking … sort of. Wait??? Should we really do this? Mr. President, are you listening? The moms of America have something to say!
