gaining one more hour of sleep???seriously?

29 Oct


06:45 was bad enough. Anything before 07:00 is considered for me TOO early. Respect to the hard-working parents here. Yes, I consider myself working as well, not in an office as such, but I might be doing one of the most ‘challenging’ jobs ever. Dare to argue with me on that one 😉

Being extremely spoiled weatherwise as I live and have lived in Greece all of my life, my mood gets easily influenced by bad weather. My definition of bad weather: NOT SUNNY. As simple as that. Summer is officially over and this transition until December when the festive mood kicks is not my thing.

To top it up, someone, who did not have young kids obviously at the time, decided to move the clocks back one hour. If getting dark at 7 was not early enough, now it is getting dark at 6. And worse of all, my dear beloved son, Yiannis who is an early rise early shine kinda boy has not managed to move his biological clock back and wakes (us) up at mere 05:45! No way Jose is he motivated to go back to sleep. By the time we have tried every approach to get him back to sleep and have completely and utterly failed,  half and hour has passed and we have all officially lost our sleep. What a great way to start the day!!

Good morning everyone!

    Daylight savings is a killer if you have young children, so I empathise with you. Mine are ‘grown’ now so thankfully it’s not an issue.
    I love it though, being able to come home and have that extra hour of daylight to do things outside in the warmth is magical (not talking gardening here).
    Hopefully Yiannis will get his bio rhythm back and not wake you up at that ungodly hour!
    Good Luck 🙂

      I know, you are absolutely right, and it really depends on the child as well. My daughter sleeps very well and I did not even notice the difference there. As far as my dear son is concerned I will try to be a bit more patient, although at 0545 I don’t have enough energy to be a very patient parent!
