Has Daylight Savings Changed For You Since Becoming a Mom?

Daylight Savings used to mean sleeping in an extra hour but now that I'm a parent, it just means my day gets started an hour earlier. Many moms gripe about the change while others hardly make it noticeable in their routine. When my kids woke up this morning, the clock read 7:00 instead of 8:00. I could get used to that. It also makes bedtime easier — waking up with the sunlight and tucking the kids in when it's dark makes more sense than when they are switched. Now that I'm a mom, I say bring on the regular hours! What's your take on Daylight Savings?

My daughter has a really hard time sleeping, so it was a huge pain in the butt. She wanted to go to bed too early, which meant a too early rise, and then fussy for the few days, shes finally adjusting now. and I'm not feeling the full on blaring sun in the morning.

We kept our kids up later too! So worked out perfect for us! And it felt good to get up when it was sunny!

We just gave our daughter a longer nap on Saturday so she stayed up later on Saturday night and slept through till 7.30 on Sunday morning. Job done.

Ugh, I hate it now! I really don't appreciate the extra early wake up the last couple of days.
