Question of the Week: Standard-Time Switch

0

Question of the Week at CatholicMom.com

Every year as we prepare to switch to Standard Time, parents with babies and young children lament that they never get that elusive “extra hour of sleep” at the end of Daylight Saving Time. The kids never get the memo.

I’m happy to report that when your children become teenagers, this will no longer be a problem. They’ll sleep as long as you’ll let them.

Being one of those people with sensitive sleep patterns, I find that it takes me several days to adjust. And I won’t be getting that “extra hour of sleep” tomorrow morning. My choir at church, which normally sings at the noon Mass, has been assigned the 10 AM Mass this week. (If I recall correctly, this happened to us in the spring when we switched to DST too! Hmmmm….)

Our Question of the Week: how does your family handle the switch back to Standard Time?

Please share your answers and experiences in the comment box below.

Remember to take care of your smoke and CO detectors at this time of year! Change your clocks, change your battery!
