An Experiment on Sleep
Daylight Savings Time really messes up sleep for kids – especially my kid. He has been waking up at 5 am for the last few days. It was a very nice day out today so we decided to head to the Yonge-Eglinton area for a stroll. We thought we would keep him in the stroller after lunch and walk around to nap him. Nope, that didn’t happen. What DID happen, though, was Violet had a 1.5 hr nap. She LOVED the walk.
Zander got to play at the playground and he had so much fun. When we got home, he was so exhausted that we swore we did not want to do this again unless circumstances called for it. You see, our kid does not crash and burn, but he gets very aggressive, to the point where he starts throwing things. As we were unloading the car, including the kids, the iTouch battery died and he just thought to chuck the device out onto the driveway. M got really mad and we told him he was banned from using any kids of device for a while.
The nice thing about all of this is that we got to put him to bed earlier, like regular time, in hopes that this will fix the DST repercussions. We’ll see what time he wakes tomorrow.
