The Schwartz's vs Time Change

Time change is of the devil! I use to L-O-V-E fall back. (I always hated spring forward.) An extra hour of sleep, yes please. Sure I could get an extra hour of sleep every night if I just went to bed an hour early, but that's beside the point. And while I can appreciate the idea of just changing the time on your clock and magically getting some extra time in bed, Sarah does not. She has no concept of the fact that I came in her room and changed the time on her clock and that means she has to stay in bed a little longer. I even kept her out late on Saturday to hopefully make her tired enough to sleep in until the new 7. Nope, bright and chipper, 6 am she sounds the morning revelry. Thank goodness for my sweet, dear, Chris who I hit and said, "she thinks it's 7" as I rolled over and tried to get my extra hour of sleep. He got up with her.

I thought the problems would only last for one day. But here were are, Wednesday, she's making it loud and clear that she is refusing to nap even though she has gotten up an hour early for the past 4 days. In fact, I think she's trying to take this opportunity to drop naps from her routine because they have been few and far between this week.

Believe me, in this house, sleep is sacred.  And we don't get it, we make pouty faces.

What moron invented time change?


  1. I could have written this post myself. In fact, at 5:30 this morning, I was composing this post in my head.

  2. If only someone had warned you before and only if you hadn't said it wouldn't affect you!!!! Maybe things would be better.
