    Is daylight savings time wrecking havoc on anyone else's kid's sleep schedule? Aargh! The spring isn't as bad as the fall, but still, it's been a nightmare getting back to a schedule this week.

    Yeah! Tell me about it Chomp. My son keeps getting up after I've put him in bed to get a drink, tell me he wants to sleep with socks on, go to the bathroom and any other excuse he can think of because he's just not ready to sleep yet. Grrrr.

    Well, it's 10:35 PM and my two-year-old is still wide awake. It's been midnight before she's went to bed a few times since the change happened. I'm about to go berzerk.

    When my daughter was smaller I would keep her up and not let her have "quiet time" (If I said nap there would be a fit had). She slept pretty good after that.

    my darling child has been awake until after 10 every night since Sunday - I'm about to lose my mind. I Need quiet time.. I wonder if there is some way to get myself a time out and really be left alone to think about my transgression... ya know it's a minute a year ... I'd be alone for over half an hour!!
    it's so sad that I'd get excited about that

    Alone for a half hour? I only wish. Well, at least I have an 1 hr 15 min drive each way to work -thats my alone time Sometimes driving can be more relaxing than acting as a piece of playground equipment for a 32 month old and a one year old.

    Oh yeah, the time change screwed up my kids a little too. The little one is back on schedule, the older one is getting there - sort of - not that she was on a very good schedule to begin with.

    Lucky for me I have to say that the time change has not yet affected either of my children. My eldest is 2 and I've never had a problem with the time change yet. Hopefully it continues like that.

    I also want to say I'm so proud of her, she did a 25 piece puzzle all by herself yesterday

    My problem is the exact opposite...we don't do the time change thing here, and my kids are up at sunrise - and of course, I'm working evenings now

    and btw, a hug and congrats to your little one Eva - it's so great when they start figuring things out for themselves, isn't it?

    Imagine someone falling and someone laughing at you!! (see I laugh out loud thread) That is really funny Duxxy! I just hope I don't fall down when you are around, or that you fall down when I am around.
