It was hard enough waking up to the alarm this morning at 5:30 am, but I am now seeing all these kids complaining of "not feeling well" most likely because they didn't fall asleep easily last night and had a hard time waking up this morning.

 

Anyone else seeing this?

I haven't yet, but since this is our first on time start on a Monday for weeks (thanks to winter related late starts), added on to the time change, if they feel anything like I do, they'll be visiting.

I'm sleepy too, but it probably has more to do with the mimosas that started at brunch yesterday and flowed on through the day.... 🤔

I was super tired all weekend (not sure why but suspect stress related to possibly buying a home all on my own) so the time change didn't do anything for that. 

One of my kids had a hard time falling asleep last night. She did not complain about being tired this morning though so hopefully she is toughing it out!

I think the time change should be eliminated. I don't see a need for it.

Congrats!! It can be a very emotional experience!
