It’s that time of year again! Daylight Saving Time is ending.
For most people, transitioning out of Daylight Saving Time comes with the benefit of an extra hour of sleep. For parents of young children, “falling back” just means having your kiddos wake you up extra early in the morning.
At least you’re not alone in the struggle, though. We’ve rounded up some of the most hilarious and spot-on tweets that sum up “falling back” for parents. Read and commiserate below.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if kids woke up on the weekend at 5 a.m. instead of 6?— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) November 5, 2017

Thanks to daylight saving time, my kids now have an extra hour to fight with each other.— Sarcastic Mommy (@sarcasticmommy4) November 4, 2018
The extra hour from Daylight Saving Time gave me the opportunity to get so much more housework done!— Marl (@Marlebean) November 4, 2018
I didn't do any of it.
But I certainly had the opportunity.

Both of my kids woke up one hour earlier than usual this morning. Two things:— A Bearer Of Dad News (@HomeWithPeanut) November 3, 2019
1.) If you say they technically woke up at the same time, technically you're an asshole.
2.) The only reason I want to go back any amount of time is to throat punch the inventor of Daylight Savings.
Robert Garland is often called the “Father of Daylight Saving” by U.S. history and a "Total Effing Douchebag" by all parents.— Andy Herald (@AndyHerald) November 3, 2016
I was going to write a tweet about how my kids woke up early and Daylight Saving Time ruined my life.— James Breakwell, Exploding Unicorn (@XplodingUnicorn) November 4, 2018
But I woke up this morning in a hotel room 1,000 miles from my kids.
I have a new annual tradition.
