Why “Fall Back” Sucks for Mommy




Remember the days–if you can–when runny noses and sticky fingers didn’t run your life? Don’t get me wrong, I love those sticky noses and runny fingers {wait, that doesn’t sound right?} with all of my heart. There’s not much I miss about prekid days–except for maybe the solo trips spent meandering around Target. One thing I really miss: in the fall, when you eagerly awaited that extra hour of sleep at the end of Daylight Saving Time like a kid waiting for Santa. 

Yeah, I still get that extra hour.

But I have kids now, people. 
And what happens when your well-trained don’t-wake-Mommy-before-eight kids “fall back?”

They start waking up at seven a.m.

And you’ve got to train them all over again that they absolutely, positively should not wake up before eight a.m.

Someone who plans ahead might start adjusting their own bodies early so that a seven a.m. wake up call isn’t quite so alarming when everyone else in the entire world is waking up an hour later. I think it’s well established by now that I am not one of those people.

The good news is, “Spring forward,” is pretty awesome. Those of you who have crack of dawn babes? They start waking up an hour past the crack of dawn.

This totally proves that motherhood is completely weird.

    Haha! My kids wake up at 5:30! Falling back would kill me. Thankfully, we live in one of two states that doesn’t ruin schedules.
