Question of the Week: Daylight Savings Time Tips/Tricks

SO. I am FINALLY caught up with all the Questions of the Week!! Whoohoo!!! This week’s question is ACTUALLY FROM THIS WEEK. YAY ME! See, I had taken a leave of absence when Snowdrop was born – I just couldn’t get it all done. But I’ve spent some of my free time going back and answering all the questions. I was finally able to post all my answers this morning (so yes, there are like 8 or 9 new posts from me today if you check out my homepage…). This last question is this week’s QOTW from the Multiples…and More! blog.

What are Your Daylight Savings Time Tips and Tricks?

This is actually a pretty simple answer for me (GASP! I know! I won’t write a novella for this answer, I promise.)

My best tip is to act as normal. For example, today my daughters at lunch at noon like usual. (Without Springing Forward, it was really eleven. But they don’t know the difference.) If they still took naps, I’d still attempt a nap today at the regular time, perhaps just half hour later than normal.

Whether I lose or gain an hour, I just keep things as normal. Hubby is napping on the couch now because he “lost” an hour of sleep. I don’t understand his logic because I really feel it’s just a matter of turning the clocks forward or back. But that’s just me. 🙂

Play along on your blog and answer this week’s Question of the Week at Multiples And More! 


(see. i told you i wouldn’t write a very long answer.)

  1. I do the same thing. It’s really no big deal (I think) but I guess some people struggle. 🙂 Congrats on your new little baby!

  2. Normalcy worked… until this year. Now my daughters want to know why they have to go to bed before it’s dark out. Because I said so? (that actually worked last night, so we’ll see what happens tonight). I just try to keep them on schedule and hope it works! At least now when they get up at the crack of dawn it’s later than it was just a few weeks ago!

  3. If we actually had a schedule,I might be able to stick to it. Around here, everyone’s all out of sorts!!

  4. “Because I said so” – of course I never realized the strength of that statement until I became a MoM and these girls started asking me “Why” about everything! Haha! It’s one of my favorites now! 🙂
