A Little Poll...

Are any other kids having trouble with the time change? I thought we were in the clear. On Sunday night Jack asked to go to bed at 7:30, his normal bedtime. But, since then it's been 8:30 or later that he's going to sleep.

On Monday we went out to eat with some friends & when we got home at 7:30, Jack was finally hungry for dinner. He ate a whole sandwich & some yogurt & was still babbling and yelling in his crib at 8:45. Tonight he didn't eat until after 7 & I don't think he went to sleep until around 8:30 or so. When I put him to bed I thought for sure he was going to be up a while since he had been running around the house like a madman.

Don't get me wrong, I love getting up later, but it still seems awfully late for him to be going to bed!

On another note, Jack has been the greatest little boy ever this week. Hysterically funny. He's been giving us a running commentary on everything, all day long in his cute babble-speak. I have no clue what he's saying, but he's saying something! And he has been trying to make us laugh. We both really felt like he had been grouchy the whole winter. It's like we have a different kid. We've been able to be outside a lot- I'm sure that helps. And John has been with us all week since it's Spring Break. Jack loves it when the 3 of us are all together.

Yes, my kids take a while to adjust to the time change. The big girls have been sleeping in later, but they usually lie in bed awake for a while at night. Meg has been waking up at the same time in the morning but she's not ready to eat breakfast for an hour! He will adjust eventually . . . just try to stick to doing things at the "new" time and he'll get there : )

No kids here, but I'm not adjusting well to the time change, especially in the morning-- can't seem to peel myself off the mattress in the morning...
