Sleepy Time

Sleepy TimeIf there is one aspect to taking a holiday that always throws me off-balance, it is the lack of routine. While staying up late has it’s benefits, I frequently stay up into the wee hours of the night and then wake up mid-morning.

Monday we are heading back into a regular routine with home schooling and that means waking up at a decent time. This might prove to be a bit of a difficulty, but I think I have a game plan in mind.

I believe we are going to stay up late tonight (hear me out) and then wake up at a normal time tomorrow. While this might mean we are a tad sleepy during the day, it will ensure that we all get to bed at a reasonable hour and wake up on Monday ready to go.

I really love having holiday vacation, but the lack of regularity constantly leaves me feeling sleepy. It will be great to get back into the swing of things, helping my body maintain a regular pattern to life.

Time to Chime In: What helps you get back into a normal routine, after vacation is over?

  1. We do the same thing. Going to bed on time is next to impossible if everyone is still feeling chipper. But getting up on time after staying up too late is at least possible, even if it’s miserable. 🙂 Black tea is my coping strategy.

  2. Hear, hear! Now, this really isn’t meant in as calloused a way as it sounds, but the kids are going to whine one way or the other when you are trying to get them back to a schedule; it might as well be them that takes the hit. In other words, their bodies will do a much better job of convincing them to go to bed on time the next night than you ever will with reasoning, cajoling, threatening and all the other stress-inducing methods we parents try when trying to overrule a kid’s (unhealthy) desires. So I would say that suffering through the one day of got-up-too-early grumpiness is far preferable to suffering through the angst of arguing with children who show no signs of sleepiness at the appropriate bedtime!
