Daylight Saving Time – Grrrr

After four years of my son waking up in the middle of the night on a regular basis, Kai finally started sleeping through the night more often in January. We initially wondered how long this new pattern would last, and was thrilled that it actually became even more consistent in February and into early March.

Then, this weekend, we had to change the clocks for Daylight Saving Time.

At 3:15 on Monday morning, I heard the familiar knocking on our bedroom door. Uh oh. My son was awake.

Last night, he knocked at 2:00 AM. He was very chatty.

Here we go again.

We are hoping that his awakening in the middle of the night is only a matter of adjusting to the time change. But, with Kai, who knows?

Why did we have to create a disruption in his sleep pattern just when we finally had things going good?

They say that more daylight helps to brighten people’s mood. Maybe that will turn out to be so. But, right now, I am just grouchier.

Daylight? Bah humbug. I’d rather have sleep instead.
