Proof that the gov't hates Jewish moms

One of the brilliant commenters at Ask Moxie has nicely pointed out that this year's change to Daylight Savings Time coincides with Purim.

That's right.

We'll be trying to get our kids to go to bed an hour earlier than their bodies think they should, while plying them with every possible refined sugar known to man.

Excuse me while I go sob quietly under my desk for a while.

(On the bright side, our tomato and chamomile seeds have ACTUALLY! SPROUTED! LITTLE GREEN THINGS! Somehow this seems absolutely miraculous.)

Give them some booze to offset the sugar. That will get them to sleep. AND it is in keeping with the holiday. is almost as if someone planned it that way.

WAY too god a suggestion. But with a history of alcoholism on my side of the family, probably not one I'd be comfortable taking.

He is, after all, only 2 and a half. :)

No no no! Give them more than too much sugar! Give them WAY too much! They'll wear themselves out with the giddy enjoyment of the event, then crash and collapse like ripped hot-air balloons over the Grand canyon.

Too much sugar by five, snoring by eight.

From little riot-running monsters to sleeping angels. It's a miracle.
