Today was the first day the time change really counted for the Scroggins Clan. We fell back Saturday night, so I guess technically we should have cherished that extra hour of sleep then. But, that extra hour really came last night, and this morning we were able to jump out of bed and attack Monday with a little more oomph than we have the past few weeks. In fact, I jumped out of bed even earlier because we had forgotten to set back the alarm clock. Awesome. But, for once I didn’t mind waking an hour earlier. I actually had a few extra minutes to tackle that Manic Monday List before too much Crazy set in.
However, I remember all too clearly how a simple one hour time change involved a strategic plan. It wasn’t that long ago that we had babies and toddlers in the house, and keeping those naptime and bedtime routines required a little more thought. It’s funny how quickly things can change, because it truly doesn’t feel like that long ago. These days we have Big Kids in the house–kids that practically set their own bedtimes. If it wasn’t for the daylight drive to school this morning, they might not have even noticed the change!
Well, even if we didn’t have a strategic plan to tackle Falling Back, I liked the extra hour, and I’m going to pretend I get the extra hour every night this week!
