moving light

we love our first born daughter so much! nani is such a sweet girl and very helpful around the house and with her sisters! she also says some pretty funny things!
last week, mitch picked nani up from a friend's house after a play date. it was about 5:00 in the afternoon. during the short drive home, the two of them had the following conversation:

nani: "is it night time?"

mitch: "yep!"

nani: "it seems early!"

mitch: "that's because of daylight savings. i like daylight savings because it stays light longer!"

nani: "i don't like it because it's dark in the morning! it's really not saving daylight! it's more like taking light from the morning and putting it in the night!"

and this is the look nani will give me when i tell her i wrote her thoughts about daylight savings on my blog:

Wow, that last picture of her looks just like lala.

What a smart girl. She knows what's up. For some reason, daylight savings was really hard for my kids this year. They are still a little off-kilter during their morning routine.

Bridget said...

yes, that second picture is a TOTAL Lala look.

Maren likes to prove that she is smarter than me. When I told her about daylight savings time she said "I know. It was Benjamin Franklin's idea. Did you know that mom?" No, I didn't.

Lots of people feel the same as you Nani, and this is the first year it's happened before your birthday! Bummer, hah? It was a little harder to go to sleep the first few nights. Happy Birthday Nani, on Saturday!!

Happy Birthday, Nani! You are getting so tall and pretty! I can't believe you are seven.

Becca said...

That's pretty funny! She is a thinker.

Great pictures of Nani!

That is a very logical way of describing daylight savings. I can kind of agree with both Mitch and Nani. I like that is stays light later, but I hate that it's so dark in the morning!

Very cute, and yes the face is perfect. It's so funny our kids will grow up in a generation where their mom's blog about them.

maybe it is good, because then you can dream longer in the morning before the light wakes you up!
