Daylight Savings With a Baby

Any other moms out there experience an early wake up call yesterday? C'mon, there must be other parents who hate Daylight Savings as much as I do. Which is a whole heck of a lot.

I was kicking Matt to get out of bed at what I thought was 8:30 yesterday morning, when he grumbled at me it was only 7:30. That meant when I heard CeCe at 6:30 a.m. start babbling and playing in her crib, it was really ... 5:30. In the morning. Crap.

The whole day was a mystery as to when she would nap, for how long, and how her bedtime would be affected. Apparently, some parents plan for this, advancing (or delaying, depending on the season) bedtime in 15 minutes increments in the week before Daylight Savings to help the kids be ready for the hour change.

Well I don't care if it's springing forward or falling back, saving time has me losing my mind. I made it all the way to the shower this morning before realizing it was 5 o'clock. They shouldn't even sell clocks that don't change themselves.

We were able to distract the CeCe-Bear until about 7:30 last night until the eye rubbings and monster yawns declared victory. She slept until a little after 6 a.m., which is good enough for me seeing as even I didn't accomplish that.

I searched around online for a solid, informative article about helping babies and toddlers adjust to Daylight Savings, and I came up with very few options. Any tips, links, or info readers could provide would be incredibly appreciated!
