Daylight savings

as i’ve gotten older, i cannot tell you how much i have grown to dislike daylight savings

i felt like i was robbed of an hour all day long yesterday

we woke up at 8:30 (the new 7:30) and i felt like i had no morning

i felt like i was constantly chasing time

the hour difference messes with my mind and my routine

the picture you see above of Lily’s room is exactly how i felt yesterday

frazzled, anxious…

it probably didn’t help that our new coffee roast was too strong and gave me the jitters for most of the day

how do you feel about daylight savings?

Lately

i have realized that it’s ok if Lily doesn’t go to the park e-ve-ry day

and it’s ok if she doesn’t play with other kids e-ve-ry day

and it’s ok if she watches sesame street some mornings

and it’s ok for her to play in her room by herself

so i can do things like paint and make jewelry

because it’s not ALL about Lily

it’s about me too

and she has to fit in my life like i have fit in hers
