Hello 6:55a.m., it’s good to see you.

14 Nov

Daylight savings time has always been a little treat for me, well, the one in the fall when we gain an extra hour of sleep. This year though it wasn’t so fun. I guess I had always heard parents say they hated this time of year because it wreaked havoc on their children’s sleep schedules. Well, I didn’t think much about it…because I didn’t have kids. I guess Lila has us pretty spoiled because for the most part she has a solid sleep schedule. She goes down around 8 each night and sleeps until around 7 or a bit after each morning. That is, until daylight savings time. Lila’s internal clock said rise and shine at 5:45. I had a perky, playful, full of energy toddler on my hands and I could barely hold my eyes open. Each night I was going to bed thinking, “ok, she will definitely sleep later this time.” Nope, each morning she was up and at em’ before sunrise. By the end of the day I was whipped. I finally wised up just a bit and got myself in bed a little earlier knowing we would be up with the roosters.

For the last week we have been making baby steps. I noticed she was tacking on 10-15 minutes of sleep each morning and we were slowing inching our way back toward 7am. This morning we made it to 6:55am. I never thought I would be so excited to look at the clock and it not even be 7am yet. If you know me though, you know I love my sleep. Now that I have written this I may have just jinxed the whole thing but I am hoping for the best.
