Memes about the exhaustion that comes with Daylight Savings Time

I’ll start off with this meme created by yours truly. One day, I was listening to all my other parent-friends complaining about how the end of DST had totally wrecked their child’s sleep schedule. After a few days, they were utterly exhausted.

And then there I was, just having a regular old Tuesday. Why? Well, because my child was a horrific sleeper and I hardly ever slept. Like, ever.

And thus was born my favorite Daylight Savings Time meme of all time. (–And one of my top five memes ever! For a few more of my favorites, you can see my post of hilarious Stay at Home Mom Memes).

Apparently, I’m not the only one. Twice per year, whenever Daylight Savings Time starts or ends, this meme makes the rounds again, garnering thousands of shares. So to you fellow parents of never-sleepers, I say, “Fist bump!”

This DST meme from Angela Anagnost-Repke has the same sentiments – enjoy that extra hour! PSYCH!

Memes about Daylight Savings Time making bedtime SUPER fun (not!)

Look, bedtime with kids is hard enough (in fact, I have a bunch of funny bedtime memes about that particular train wreck!). But bedtime PLUS Daylight Savings Time shenanigans? Woof!

One of the biggest challenges to falling back is that it gets dark at 5:00 PM. When it gets dark, you think it’s bedtime. You hope it’s bedtime. But… it’s not.

But you can dream, right? Honestly, that’s about all you can do–dream, hope, wish– for bedtime!

If it seems like I’m focusing too much on those fall and winter days of early darkness, don’t worry. There’s plenty of bedtime problems caused by springing ahead as well!

When you set your clocks forward, you should probably go ahead and get your blackout curtains ready too!

And it’s not just physical exhaustion — although there’s that, for sure! There’s also the frustration and emotional meltdowns from the schedules being off.

Plus, let’s not forget: it’s not just the kids that are exhausted when Daylight Savings Time shifts roll around. It’s ALL OF US.

I do just fine and dandy during spring, summer, and fall. But winter? As soon as Daylight Savings Time ends and those clocks roll back? Not so good…

I know a day is always 24 hours long, but they feel extra long when so much of our awake time is so dark. Or as Simon Holland put it…

Of course, some people love it.

Just kidding. No one loves it.

I think the real challenge is how deceiving it is. You’re just going about your business, living your life, making it until bedtime.

But then, as this Daylight Savings Time meme so aptly illustrates, it’s not bedtime. It’s barely even dinnertime.
