Daylight Savings is back, and that means the sun is rising earlier and setting later. If your kids are like mine, that means they get to stay up later and get up early–right?? No. That’s not okay with me. My kids go to bed pretty early, around 7:30. We’ve tried having them stay up later and they still wake up early and are extra cranky. So the early bedtime has always worked best for us. Doesn’t work so well when it’s still light outside and they need to go to bed.
Also, I absolutely love the natural light that streams into my bedroom. It’s fabulous and illuminates the entire space. But when you want a little extra shut eye on the weekends…it’s not exactly easy to snooze past sunrise with light in your face. So I knew I needed curtains, and they’d have to be blackout curtains.
I searched for the easiest way to do this and ran across this brilliant tutorial that I could do really quickly. I now feel like I have a new lease on life! Yay! My kids and I can sleep in on our days off!
Watch how Deb cleverly does this in her step by step tutorial. It takes no time at all and before you know it you’ll be sleeping in!
