Taking a stand

On behalf of all the parents of young children who woke up at well before 6:00 am this morning, I’d like to make the following announcement:

Suck it daylight savings.

As someone who grew up in Arizona and thus didn’t grow up with daylight savings I have to confess that I really don’t see the point in it, other than to confuse people and to mess with the sleep schedules of small children. I have decided I am officially opposed to the whole thing.

For anyone keeping track at home, you can add daylight savings to my existing list of things I am officially opposed to:

– cotton balls

– the soul patch

– ironic mustaches

– ironic facial hair of any kind

– mice

– olives

– commercials that aren’t funny

– the New England Patriots

and, of course,

– poop on the floor

    I am with you. Daylight savings sucks…went to bed late and of course woke up way too early. It doesn’t save me any daylight…just makes for a cranky mommy.

    I’m with you on on all of the other issues listed (still don’t mind daylight savings though) but find myself curious to learn more about why cotton balls can suck it????

    @Ellie, I have SUPER big aversion to touching cotton balls. Like it really really makes me uncomfortable and gives me bad goosebumps. I once had to make a holiday display at Bath and Body Works (used to work there as a seasonal worker) using pulled apart cotton balls as snow and I had to wear gloves because I just couldn’t touch them.

    Weird, huh?

    I miss the extra hour of sleep. My son woke up this morning at 4:15. I think I might passout in class from exhaustion. How long will it take him to adjust? 😦

    I too am opposed to all of those things, with the exception of cotton balls. I don’t know how else I would effectively remove my eye makeup or nail polish.

    Actually, just yesterday I was telling someone how I was philosophically opposed to daylight savings time. We need to ban together.
    GO TEAM!
