Hey mama. This is Mama’s daily dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com. Happy Friday Mama. And this weekend on Sunday, November 7, we put those clocks on back an hour, which is nice to get that extra hour. But it would be cooler if we just didn’t change clocks at all. And if you are a mom of young children, you know why! And mamas daily dose is… PADS, Parents Against Daylight Savings Time. Let’s get moving before we get interrupted.
PADS – Parents Against Daylight Savings Time. I guess technically, it should have a ‘T’ at the end too. But then it wouldn’t have as nice of a ring to it as PADS. So we’re just gonna keep it PADS. And also, it’s kind of an imaginary club, it doesn’t really exist. So just stick with me on this. Anyways, Arizona and Hawaii know what’s up, they stay on the same time, the whole year, and I get it. It’s nice to have more light in the spring and the summer. But with young kids, it is just not worth that fight of changing the time, and having to deal with the whole break in routine and everything. And especially in the spring, because then they just start waking up so early. And then I feel like it never really regulates until we change the clocks back again. And then we fall back. And then we get an extra hour, but then it’s super dark. And then when it gets super dark early, everyone’s just always talking about “oh my gosh, it’s dark so early.” And then once it gets darker later, then that’s all everyone talks about. And I really just think it would make life so much easier if we stayed on the same time, the whole year. And then you don’t have Arizona and Hawaii that are sometimes on two hours behind sometimes three hours behind. And then I’m not able to figure it out when I’m trying to call my friend in Phoenix, Arizona. And really this just this whole daylight savings time thing. It’s It’s making my life a little more difficult. And yeah, I’m complaining about it a bit. Sometimes you just got to get some things off your chest. So if you would like to join my imaginary club that doesn’t really exist. There’s not a whole lot you have to do. Maybe just say you’re a part of the club. You’re against it. And maybe share this podcast with some other mama friends too. Because then we can get even more Mama’s to join our fake club
Okay, I’m done venting. I’ve accepted it. Time is changing. It’s not really worth the fight or complaining but I thought it would be fun to create a fake club too.
