Daylight Savings

I know, I know we all hate it (or do we?) but the thing is that Tommy's previous sleep schedule (7pm - 7isham and only napping once in the morning) was killing me. Really I think it was.

The child just couldn't go the whole morning without a nap, and the mommy couldn't go the whole afternoon without one and life was just plain too hard.

Enter Daylight Savings Time.

We were busy on Sunday night, and then we were busy on Monday night, and Tommy didn't really notice that the clock said something different when we put him down at sunset just like every other day.

Magically his sleep schedule has shifted just shy of an hour and suddenly afternoon naps are cool.

He happily stayed awake until after lunch (Manwich anyone?) and when I put him down he slept HARD for nearly two hours.

As a result the time period that I have come to not-so-affectionately call "The Seven Hour Stretch" vanished.



It's only been 2 days, but I have high hopes for the rest of our lives.


  1. I think daylight savings has affected me the same way it affected Tommy..only I have to be at work instead of getting to take a nap! Good luck to with this :)

  2. I've been a daylight savings hater for as long as I can remember, but having Ellie suddenly sleep in until 7 instead of 6 is pretty freakin' awesome. I'm hoping we can keep the new schedule going!
