Why we suck as parents, episode 2

Remember how we changed the time yesterday? Shaun & I were on the ball. We changed the alarm in our room so we could get up for church and our computers & cells reset automatically.

We did the church thing then came home. We had our neighborhood egg hunt around 3:30 then came back home. I put Ben down for a nap a little after 4. He ended up sleeping till after 6. Shaun called around 6:30 and was on his way home. So I started dinner thinking how awesome it was that he was coming home early.

He got home, we ate, the kids played. Around 8:15, I decided to give them a shower and do their hair. We finished around 9. They asked to watch a show in lieu of reading a book and we agreed.

Then I walked into my study around 9:20 and saw an IM from my mom that she & my dad were heading to bed. "Wow" I think "that is early for them."

And then it hit me. I go back to the living room and ask Shaun "Did you change the clocks in the kitchen?" "No," he says "I thought you did."

We then realized that it was almost 10:30 at night and our children should have been in bed an hour before. Aren't we just parents of the year? :oP


  1. Oh well, you can't be perfect all the time! :-)

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and for all the sweet comments! :-)

    If you need anything custom made (like the stuff on my Etsy) just let me know, I'll cut you deal! :D

  2. Lol, at least you were organized enough to set MOST of your clocks ahead, we completely forgot here.
