Early Morning Prince

Not all of us are adjusting well to the time change. Let’s just say a certain early morning Prince would prefer his hour of sleep back.

Why are we out here so early?

The adjustment to Daylight Savings Time means we are getting up an hour earlier than we were a week ago. Some of us have made the change without complaint, particularly since meals come an hour earlier. However, some of us aren’t happy with the early morning wakeup call.

Someone wake me when the correct time arrives.

We wouldn’t say the Little Prince is a grouch (at least not to his face), but let’s just say we don’t have an early morning Prince.

Why are you speaking to me this early?

P.S. – Hu-dad says some humans might agree with the Little Prince.

    You hit the button completely Little Prince. I don’t want to face mornings an hour earlier!! Your morning face says it all!

    Oh yeah… Typhoon’s expression is right on!!! It definitely takes time to adjust to the dark mornings :0
    And to top it off … the bears have come out of hibernation so we really have to be careful out there in these early mornings!
    At least the long evenings help make us feel better ????
