Lazy Sunday

I am convinced that the people who invented decided that daylight savings time should be started, did in fact not have children. Why would anyone who had children come up with something that makes their job so much harder?

Yes, there are good things about daylight savings time, I am sure, but right now I am not thinking about those. I am thinking about the fact that the whole switch throws everything into confusion with a child. Maddie did get up at her "normal" post daylight savings time, and that was nice, but after that, well...

We had to rush to get to church on time because we were already running behind this morning. We got home from church and had lunch and then tried to get Maddie on her new "normal" schedule with nap time at noon (which is actually 11am to her). She played in her room for almost an hour and a half. We had to go upstairs twice to get her to settle down for her nap. Then we had to wake her up because she might have slept until 5pm if we had let her. So who knows what bed time will be like tonight. Here is to hoping we adjust quickly.

But what does this have to do with the title of this post you might be asking? Well, besides that evils of daylight savings time our Sunday was wonderful.

All three of us just spent the day together. No where to be, nothing to do. And it rained all day, so that made it even easier to stay inside. We sat on the couch and caught up on shows and just enjoyed each other's company. And we ALL (yes all three of us) got a nap. To me this was an ideal day, except for the above mentioned.

We finished the day off with a BBQ (yes even though it was raining, we even BBQ in the snow). Ron made his own BBQ sauce and then put it on chicken on the BBQ. It was very good. Maddie even helped baste the chicken. I love watching Ron teach Maddie how to cook. He has such patients with her, it is wonderful to see.

I know the time change had my little one a bit messed up. It took her longer to get to sleep tonite but we made it.
So nice to teach her so young to BBQ. Looks yummy too.

So sweet! I think the daylight savings decider was probably not even human, or if it was, they must not have had a job that required them to get up in the morning.

Oh this made me laugh: the daylight savings thoughts & the rushing to too!
