An Extra Hour of Sleep? Parents Tweet the Truth About Daylight Savings

Let’s reminisce. Remember before kids when the fall back time change meant an extra hour of sleep? Ah, good times.

I remember the first year I realized the joke was on us, as parents. My toddler was already an early riser (awake by 6 a.m., sometimes 5) so in his tiny little body, 5:12 a.m. was now 4:12. And that’s when we started our day. Pretty much in the middle of the freaking night. For a week straight. And officially, that “extra hour of sleep,” like many things (happy hour, a social life, my sanity…), was a thing of the past.

Here are a few other parents bracing themselves for the joy of the upcoming time change. (On Twitter, of course, the best place to bitch about parenthood.)

It’s okay, people. Because here’s the good news: Now, you can spin the “Hey look, it’s dark out! Must be bedtime!” trick waaaaaay earlier.

Silver lining, my friends! Silver lining.
