I might be one of the few parents who likes daylight savings time during the fall. My kids are older now, so I don’t have to entertain them in the mornings if they get up early (which is usually not the case).
The extra hour in the morning is like gold. I’ve already done most of my daily rituals, showered and gone to the grocery store. Have you ever been food shopping at 6:30am? There is no one there. You basically get the store to yourself. It’s amazing!
Granted, the flip side of getting up super early is that you are wiped out by 8:30pm, but that’s okay. Last night, I read for a bit and got a really good sleep waking me up when my body said it was ready.
I know this is probably only going to last a couple of days, but I’m going to savor each early morning.
How do you handle the time change?
