The time change always has me in a dither. I work SO hard at establishing and maintaining such a strict schedule for the kids and then twice a year the clock blows it all to shit and I practically have to restart.
Even though we lose an hour sleep, when the kids get up at what their body thinks is 7:00am, it's really going to be 8:00am. That I can deal with. But when it's time for bed at 8:00pm, their bodies will think it's only 7:00pm. That sucks for everyone.
It's not just a simple turning of the clock and forget about it. The effects linger for nearly a week. I hate it.
The clock will continue to run our household, as it has done for the last 7 years. I know it's tough to be 7 and going to bed at 8:00pm when it's still light out kinda sucks but you know what sucks more? Having a mommy who is going on hour 14 of non-stop kids being around. Drew will discover that being in bed in the sunlight is more fun than being downstairs and being around me come hour 14, I think.
Don't forget! Saturday before you go to bed to turn your clocks forward. And don't forget to change the batteries in your smoke detectors, too!
