Daylight savings time annoys me..

I take issue with being told that we have to set the clocks back one hour 'just because'. I know there's a reason for it -- I remember reading it one time, but honestly I'm too lazy to look up the reason for it. I *think* it has something to do with conserving energy, maybe?

But my main issue I have is how it messes with little ones internal clocks! And further, how that messes with mommy's internal clock! First off, somehow it had completely escaped me that daylight savings was this weekend. Usually I see it in the newspaper, on the news, someone reminds me; SOMEHOW I am reminded. This year, I was left completely in the dark. I had my alarm set for 7:15 a.m. because Matthew had to leave at 8 a.m. for church with his grandparents and I didn't want to oversleep.

So I hear Peyton in his crib talking to himself, and I hear Sophie say "Good morning Mommy!" and I look at my phone. And I see, "Due to daylight savings time, your time has automatically been adjusted. The correct time is 6:06 a.m." O.M.G. Waaaaaay to early to be up! So of course the kids, who refuse to nap as it is during the day, were in even more rare form. By 7 p.m., Peyton was falling asleep sitting up, and by 7:30 he was fast asleep in his bed.

I'm ready for bed and it's not even 8 p.m. It's been a loooooong day!! These first few days of daylight savings are always so hard to get adjusted to!
