I hate Daylight Savings Time. I really don’t care if it’s dark outside when I leave for work and light when I return, or vise versa. What I do care about is having two happy little boys and DST makes sure that doesn’t happen for at least two weeks out of the year.
Okay, I’ll admit, “fall back” is a bit easier to manage than “spring forward”. Although we end up getting up at the crack of dawn, it is much easier to put the boys to bed late, unlike in the spring when we try to get them to go to sleep an hour early. Great, now I’m dreading the spring.
I’m sure someone can give me all kinds of cultural, maybe even scientific reasons for the time change. Or even advice on how to handle it with the boys a bit better. I will stand my ground with my statement that I don’t care. I find this ritual completely unnecessary. Unless the time change eliminates winter, and in my experience that has never happened, it will never get my vote.
