Preparing for Daylight Savings Time

Daylight saving time (which begins this Sunday, March 11th) isn't the easist sell for kids. I know what’s going to happen in my house: It won't be dark yet at my son's bedtime, it will "feel"

I honestly didn't realize that daylight savings time was here already! I think it is a great idea to get my kiddos prepared early. I'm not sure it will work with my older boys (they keep a close eye on that clock when bedtime is close!) but I will try with Landon. I think 10 minutes early each night is a great way to get him adjusted easily.

I wanted to prep. DS has a late enough bedtime that nighttimevlight isn't an issue till later in the year. Unfortunately i get home too late from work to start before tonight. so we are just gonna have to work with it this week.

How did your DS do with the time change today, Kristy? My kiddos did pretty okay. My oldest two had to pulled out of bed this morning but Landon, my 3yr old didn't seem to notice a change. I think I was the most tired of all of us! I hit my snooze button a few too many times this morning!

Oh no! I'm sorry you had a rough night. If it makes you feel better, last night was much more rough on my kids than the night before. They took forever to get to bed and were all super grouchy this morning. Here's to hoping it evens out by the end of the week!

Thanks! Last night was much better and I didn't have to drag anyone out of bed this morning, so I think things are starting to turn around a bit! How was your night last night?

I'm glad last night was better! I'm sure that having your DH around at bedtime really helps.

Things are pretty much back to normal around here now too. Thank goodness!
