Change is Hard!

This past weekend was the ever dreaded Daylight Savings Time.  Spring forward or some such nonsense.  I really don't get why we do this, other than to send our children into confusion and adults into crabby beings for a few days. 

I figured this would be a good time to see if Tigger would start stretching out until 7:30 or 8:00 pm for her bedtime.  Well of course Sunday it did work out since at 8pm she obviously thought it was still 7pm.  Tonight however, it was chaos....we ended up staying til 7:30pm, but I'm not sure if she's ready for that half hour change.  I thought she would be, but I may be wrong. 

Looking ahead, I think she would enjoy Vacation Bible School this summer at our church, but usually the hours are 6-8pm and so ultimately was trying to get her used to evening hours before going into total meltdown.  We'll see what happens.  She is a child that needs her sleep, so it could just be that she is not ready to be stretched and maybe this grand change I had envisioned will not come to pass. 

(yeah I need to get more room going in my camera memory card again, but this is how she is now!)

I'm not sure if the time change has been harder on Shawn and me or the kids. We're all a little grumpy this week!!!
