I'm glad you asked.
It's our last-ditch, desperate effort to keep our children from dragging us from our bed at 4:30 am. I'm not kidding. No, I am not.
We went and bought clocks for the children. We spent Family Home Evening discussion what a "6" looks like on the clock. And explaining that if they manage to keep it quiet until 6:00am, they earn a cotton ball each. When the jar is full of cotton balls, they win a prize.
If they fail (oh they shall fail most spectacularly says the rare pessimist in me) they lose a cotton ball.
We are desperate.
And hating Daylight Savings Time so much that it makes me want to vomit.
Try to understand: we are begging/bribing our children to stay in bed until SIX O CLOCK IN THE MORNING. This is very very pathetic.
I'll keep ya posted.
