I'm gonna hate daylight savings this year.
BB Maine-ah gets up in the morning at 6 am now. With DLS, she's gonna be up at 5 am. I have gone back to work full time nights and am at home with her all day. She doesn't sleep the night through still, and I just give up and let her sleep in our bed, just so I can get some sleep.


I'm exhausted. I want one full night of sleep. Thats all I ask. x(

1. I remember those days. I miss them very much.
I am looking forward to driving home in daylight again.

2. I usually enjoy dls.
But I think it's going to be quite sometime before she understands what it's all about.

3. won't it go the other way?
When she thinks it's 6 am, time to get up, the clock will actually say 7 am.

I've got an 11-month-old, so I've been thinking about this. :)

7. Heheh. Yep. Since GreenKid the elder and GreenKid the younger are only
23 months apart I spent a couple of years dealing with one night sleeper and one day sleeper. I was a mess!

6. I often did not adjust the kids to DLS time. In some ways it was less of a pain than
trying to change their sleeping habits. (Although I missed the lost hour in the evenings.)

Pick one way and leave it alone!

10. I Remember Crying Once Because Mine Had Just
