Ah...spring forward time. The time of much groaning, complaining and gnashing of teeth.
Actually since having children, I've found that falling backwards is just as confusing to their little internal clocks as springing forward is. They are either getting to bed too late or rising too early...mainly due to sunlight issues.
Meet one of my sincerest friends...the room darkening shade.
These are seriously the best things known to mankind...at least if you take your sleep or that of your children seriously.
They are cheap and discreet...you can hide them behind a curtain or even use them in front of blinds with a valance and just pull them down when you need them.
My girls don't realize that even when it is technically only 6:30 PM (though the clock says 7:30 PM) that it is completely daylight outside. We just pull the shades down and nighty-night folks. They also work great for keeping them asleep when we "fall back" and it is light so stinkin' early in the morning. And of course they are a hit for nap time on a daily basis.
So, like my title says...whether we are springing forward or falling back, these shades have got your back.
