Stupid

Daylight Savings is stupid. Here are the top 3 reasons I hate the hour change:

1. Colton now wakes up at 5:55 am every day (one hour EARLIER), but still goes to bed at 7:30 pm. Tell me how that works.

2. It is pitch black here by 5. Five! Not cool.

3. Colton is super fussy in the evenings. I mean non-stop whining. I've resorted to taking him on walks outside in the pitch black.

Do children EVER adjust to the time change?

We have been going through the SAME thing! The time change means nothing to babies. Luckily, Ryan has been going to bed an hour earlier, but the problem is Zach and I still go to bed the same time. When morning comes, Ryan is up at his regular time (an hour earlier with the time change) and I just LOST an hour of sleep. Not cool.

I totally agree! James is waking up WAY too early!

The time change just doesn't click with babies and farm animals.

i agree on all three! Milo's schedule is the EXACT same! i dont get it! did they not get the memo to sleep in an extra hour? haha. I hate daylight savings..saving daylight to me means, making it lighter, LATER! screw the people who have to get up early! haha kidding! kind of.

Mine just did this morning. Pretty quick considering it took them three weeks to do it last time. I was not a happy camper for the last two days. I did have to keep Rory up through her afternoon nap yesterday to achieve this though. Yes the evening was AWFUL, but it was worth it when she didn't get up until 7:10 this morning instead of quarter to 5. I hope it works out for you soon! Sometimes I wished we lived in AZ...no time change there! Smart people I say...

Nora and Sophie are doing the same things. Not fun. Last year it took Sophie a few weeks to get the change down - I am hoping it happens quicker this year because getting up at 5:30am is not fun!

I hate the time change too! Cohen has been waking up around 6:15. It's the darn sun that wakes them! we just need to be like Arizona and not do daylight savings.

i feel your pain! My husband works pretty late and I dont care too much in the summer... but now with the time change it STINKS!! Plus I feel like the kids should be in bed now b/c its pitch black... and its 5:45!

Daylight savings time sucks. Nothing good comes from messing with babies schedules and getting dark before dinner time. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you that Colton goes back to waking up at his usual time.

I used to really hate it, untill we had to adjust NINE hours! Now I'm grateful its just one :) I try to right away just start going by the clock with naps and bedtime and eventually the wake-up time will change, too. It is no fun though :(
