Fall Back: Doing Anything to Prepare?

It looks like we'll all be setting our clocks back an hour this coming Sunday!  Are you doing anything now to prepare for the time change? Are your kiddos going to bed at the same time or are you adjusting their bedtimes a bit each night?

We usually set the clocks back early in the morning the day before so we can adjust by the end of the evening. It seems to work well for us.

I've been moving bedtime back about 15 minutes a night, starting last night.  I'm hoping that by Sunday morning, their little bodies will be a little more adjusted!

Great idea!  I tried that the last night- moved it by 30 minutes, and I think it helped a bit.  Here were are on Tuesday and things are back to normal in the sleep department.  Thank goodness!
