Today marks the first day of November and it was a needed change from the month that was October. I was ready for a new start.
I forgot that the time change was also happening and I didn’t remember how bad it was last year with a once year old until I saw this meme
I laughed AND cried when I saw this. It all came back like a ton of bricks. OMG our son can’t tell time and he will wake up when his natural clock goes off. Which IF it’s not bad, it would be an hour earlier than normal or it could be 2-4 hours earlier.
My husband and I went to bed not before giving each other the look as if to say: “well done today surviving parenthood”
Of course our son was up, BRIGHT EYES and all; ready to play. He didn’t give us the usual fuss over changing his diaper. He actually handed my husband all the supplies and laid down. Is this the twilight zone. We stare at each other with bags under our eyes and I greet the morning.
Today was a good day, dinner is now cooking and we have survived another day of parenthood. But or course we did it with Starbucks and a cake pop, I mean HOW ELSE can you survive a time change with a toddler?
