Daylight Saving Time
Posted March 15, 2016on:
Last Sunday, we turned the clocks back one hour. Thus, gaining an hour of sunlight, but losing an hour of sleep.
I’ve always dreaded this time change because of the loss of sleep, or what feels to be a loss of sleep, but have begun to appreciate the extra hour of daylight.
How do the kids adjust?
We never really saw any real adjustment issues with M. We never really changed our schedules to accommodate the time change. We kept things the same. She never really had an issue with either time changes.
K, on the other hand, I’m not so sure. She’s always been one to fight sleep. She’s the shortest napper, she’s the earliest riser, she’s the latest sleeper. She’s the exact opposite of M’s easy sleeping ways. It’s maddening at times, but there really isn’t anything I can do. She is who she is.
With the extra hour of daylight, I’m hoping to go back to our afternoon/early evening walks around our neighborhood. I’m looking forward to running errands after Hubby gets back home from work without it getting dark too soon. I’m looking forward to the summer where we can jump into the pool before dinner.
There’s a lot to look forward to during this time of the year.
How do your kids deal with the time change?
