    Default Early birds and daylight savings ending!

    Well it worked kinda. Slept in until 5am (6am old time). So still not enough sleep, as she only got 9.5 hours, I tried to resettle but she just screamed she was all finished sleeping now 😉so I know it's game over.
    I had to get up for work now anyway.
    As an early bird she's up around 5ish anyway regardless of bedtime so it's ok, could of been worse, like 4am.
    Think she'll be a grumpy handful for DH today.

    DS was up at 4.45am.....he is so grumpy already. DD stayed in bed until 5.30am which is not too bad I guess. Lots of fun doing an Easter egg hunt!

    DS2 got up at 6:30 and DS1 had been up for at least an hour before that. We talked to him last night about the clocks changing and if he was first up he had to wait for his brother to pick up any eggs. He sat quietly at the table doing colouring in which I had set up

    For us it's more that by the time we start our various family visits today the kids are exhausted from waking so early and don't enjoy the day....

    So DS 6 months wakes up 6am new time, so 7 old time which is awesome!

    DD is still asleep and it's 6:15 new time. I'm letting her sleep in though as she will already need to nap late because of Easter lunch at the in laws
