I'm finally ready to confess.
I, Kristi Rush, have been taking advantage of the time change.
It started November 1st, and it still has not stopped. I think I might have a problem. It gets dark, my girls go to bed. Sometimes if they go down for a late nap, around 3:00 pm, they sleep on through till the morning. What time do they wake up you ask? Well, no matter what, Riley wakes up with the sun, except for last Sunday, that was a fluke. Madison, sleeps till 8:30 am no matter what.
Am I bad Mom for doing this? Am I bad Mom for putting my kids down so early? I've tried to wait longer to put them down, but it doesn't work. If Riley goes to bed later, she still wakes up with the sun. If Madison goes to bed later, she still wakes up at 8:30. I put them to bed tonight at 4:45, they are still sleeping and will continue to sleep until the morning.
Is it bad that I am enjoying my alone time at night? Are there any other Mom's out there that are doing this same exact thing? Or am I the only one? Am I alone in this?
I don't care if I'm all alone in this. It feels right. It feels so right. I've been waiting for kids that sleep and now I finally have it. So, I am, I am going to take advantage of these dark days. You can judge me, or you can join me.
This is my confession.
