Daylight savings...

How bout this for a bumper sticker; "I turned my clocks back and all I got were these bags under my eyes!" I know the saying goes that you are supposed to gain an hour of sleep when you "fall" back, try telling that to a 4 month old. Delia now thinks that 5:00 am is the new 6:00 am!! Ahh, that makes for a grouchy, cranky, sleepy mommy! :o) She wakes up for the day, ain't no feeding her and putting her back to bed. Then like clock work at about 6:00 am she gets sleepy, just in time for the two other to munchkins to be getting up. We are a Happy Family (as Claire starts throwing a hissy fit)!

That would make a great bumper sticker...Sounds like Delia and I are in the same boat...I now awaken at 0530 thinking it's 0630 but I can't go back to sleep!!! Wish they would just leave Daylight Savings time alone!!!

Andy, Beth and Jennah, too! said...

whoa... I don't think I really understand how easy I have it with Jennah... she sleeps in until 9:30-ish (she's quite the nite owl, she stays up with us until about 10-10:30ish). I'm spoiled. I'll try to sleep an extra hour or two for you, will that help?

it takes me till "spring forward" to have finally fully adjust to the "fall back."

I have been so baby hungry lately, but when you talk about getting up that early to feed the baby, I'm not so baby hungry....I'll just keep admiring the cute babies that I see at work almost every day!
Good Luck!!

Make sure you get your sleep. You need it or else you will get cranky.

I vote Daylight Savings should be optional for families with young children. As soon as I figure out how to do that, I will let you know. I'll keep you posted. :)
