Daylight Savings and YOU
On Sunday morning, when the time "fell back", leaving daylight savings for the next few months. That morning, we woke up at 7:15AM, which was really 8:15 on our body clocks. I was thankful that my girls are relatively sleepy little girls, as I don't think I could have managed to wake up much earlier. That night, we were ALL out of sorts, having meltdowns when it was only 8PM. I guess I had forgotten that it was really 9PM (pretty darn late for us) on our body clocks.
The next morning, Monday morning, we woke up gloriously "early" - 7AM. It was a natural and easy wakeup, whereas other mornings we struggle to get dressed and fed at 7:45AM and we race to school to avoid those awful tardy slips and getting sent to the office.
Monday evening, the bedtime routine was not as long-drawn as others. By 8PM, they were tuckered out and were generally pretty cozy in their bunks.
Today, we are approaching 7AM, and I am hoping that the mornings will be earlier once again, and that we can have leisurely breakfasts and rides to school, but it remains to be seen.
I my girls were early risers, I could see how this could all be reeking havoc, with kids waking up ready to go at 4 or 5AM.
How has the time change been in your family? Crazy? Unnoticeable?
