Daylight Savings must have been developed as a torture method for households with kids. It’s really, really unfair that we have to go through this schedule shifting twice a year! I can only imagine how daycares are coping.
Jack went to bed late (inevitably!) last night. This morning I hid out in the second bathroom drinking coffee while Joe woke and dressed him. Jack was extremely unhappy to be awake at such an early hour. I felt terrible for hiding out while Joe did all the work, but we were all on a tight schedule this morning and if I had shown my face it would have meant a good 20 minutes of nursing. Thank goodness I had that cup of coffee in my hands because otherwise I would have run into the other room to scoop Jack up in my arms to soothe and rock him. Joe did a wonderful job, though. It was nice to get the insight into how he went about the morning routine as if I were not there. He was so sweet and sympathetic to our little boy and Jack was calm by the time they walked out the door. That part felt good.
I have a feeling it’s going to be a long week. Somehow we have to figure out how to adjust to the time shift and get back in a routine. I surely wouldn’t mind advice on how to go about that. I hope you all are having an easier time of it!
