The Daylight Savings Game

Prior to having the girls I loved daylight savings time in the fall, an extra hour to sleep, how nice and while the girls didn't wake up to early...I guess Natalie woke up at 5:00, it was actually the bedtime that was tricky. The girls go to bed pretty much right around 7ish and yesterday they didn't nap well because they both have colds so they were ready for bed at 5:00. Their clock was telling them it was 6, but it was way to early. We managed to push them until 6:30...a real task, but we managed. However, this morning Maddie woke up at 3:30...oh yes and Natalie woke up at 4:30. Ah, there was nothing I could do, but get up with them, and of course we ended up accidentally waking Tom up around 5:00. Not sure how much he appreciated that one, but what ya gonna do. Oh well, we are all suffering from some sort of cold or something. Natalie started a few days ago with the runny nose, Maddie started getting it last night (wouldn't you figure too, that the little one, Natalie, is much stronger and less pathetic than Maddie, who cried almost all night) and now Tom and I both have sore throats...ah family germ sharing. Oh well, we hope others out there with kids were able to adjust to the time change easily!
