Pre-Children I loved the fall back of Daylights Savings Time….that extra hour of sleep was precious. Now that I am the Mama of two early rising boys, I kind of hate it. It screws everything up. This morning both boys were up at 6:10am – a whole hour before my alarm goes off on a Monday. I tried my best to keep them quiet in hopes of them falling back asleep, even crawled into bed with Aiden to see if he would just shut his eyes for a little longer. But no luck. This happens every year. Twice every year. The time change screws with our sleep schedule. And it really messes everything up for about a week. The boys seem to have a hard time adjusting to the change, they sleep less, eat more, and even throws off their behavior. It might be a good thing that Aiden doesn’t have school this week and Jakob has 1/2 days – will make it easier for their teachers.
Do your kids have trouble with the time change? Do YOU have trouble with it?
