I really do hate it. I never knew I would, because really, how could anyone hate an extra hour of sleep? But it's really just a trick. For people with kids its not an extra hour of sleep, it's an extra hour of awake. And it has turned my kids, mainly Tyler, into monsters because their schedules are all thrown off. Tyler had FINALLY started sleeping in until about 8, sometimes 8:30, every morning. Now he's up at 7, and this morning he got up about 6:30, and I believe that no one should have to interact with their kids before 7 am. Plus, he still doesn't get to bed until 8, and his extra hour of awake has not been pretty. Right now he's in his bed screaming and I'm down here praying that he'll fall asleep for just an hour so I don't have to listen to him whine!
But here's something cute he's doing. He's learning to feed himself with a spoon. I have a love-hate relationship with this stage because it's so cute but it's sooooooooo messy. And did I mention he uses his left hand? It's funny to watch him dip his spoon in his bowl, get absolutely nothing on it, and hurriedly put it in his mouth with on obvious "I'm proud of myself" expression on his face.
On Saturday night Jeremy and I went to a club in Park City to see Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers perform. They aren't really radio played so they don't have a huge following compared to some bands but I'd say that the fans they do have are loyal. It was probably the best show I've ever been to! They played for about 2 1/2 hours and sounded just as good at the end as they did at the beginning. The band was having fun and everyone in the crowd was having fun, and it was just awesome. Downside? They didn't finish until after 1 in the morning, which means we didn't get home until 2 am. For an old mom like me that's late! But it was fun to go with Jeremy and some of our friends and I remembered how much I like going to concerts and how much I've missed it! But between getting a babysitter (thank you rachel!) and getting no sleep it's not worth it unless it's going to be an incredible show, which this one was.
And guess what? Tyler is asleep! Everybody celebrate!
