Hope everyone is doing good with the switch. I know I could use that extra hour (or 4) of sleep today! I dont know who is having a harder time, me or my ds. lol

I always dread this day. It is usually one of the worst daycare days of the year. I always plan quiet activities, outdoor time, early lunch and early nap and work on transitioning things back to normal throughout the week.

Yesterday my 3 yr old and 6 yr old slept for 3 hours yesterday afternoon. I would have too, but my leg is still giving me pain. I hate changing the clocks. I love the extra daylight but it takes me like 2 weeks to recover from the lost hour. And it seems the old I get, the longer it takes: )

We started transitioning our son a few days before hand but I shouldve done the same for myself. Hes doing fine but Im exhausted today. I only have one dck today and my son but a afternoon interview so Im hoping I dont seem like a zombie by then.

I gave up coffee for the new year and some days I regret it. Today would be one of those days lol.

I must be lucky, it hasn't affected me or the kids at all. One little girl came in looking a bit sleepy, but she perked right up and is just fine now. Hopefully they won't hit a wall later .

It usually doesn't affect me or my kids too much, but we were so busy on Saturday getting a new car that we completely forgot about it! Normally not such a big deal but my mother and I were going to go shopping Sunday morning. So I'm still in my pj's having coffee when she shows up "an hour early" and I had no idea what was going on!

My whole system has been off every since! I'm not worried about the kids, it's me who's having a hard time!

Everyone is sooooooooooooo tired today! They are all just lying around! I am hoping it warms up quickly so we can head outside! It is still only about 40 degrees, so once it hits 50 we are outta here! I am hoping the fresh air will help! One of my little 2 yo dcb's asked me if he could go "nigh nigh". The powers that be need to just leave the time alone!!!

We are all doing fine here...but I dread tomorrow. When I taught in the public school system, it was never the day after vacation that was horrible-it was the SECOND day when the waking up early caught up with them again
