I haven't had a good night's sleep for about a year now so I was really looking forward to tonight. We're setting the clocks back an hour to mark the end of Daylight Savings Time, which means I'll get an extra hour of sleep. It might not seem like a lot for some people, but you Baby Mamas know exactly what I'm talking about. I had it all planned out. I wasn't going to set the clock back right away, so I could wake up tomorrow morning at 7, look at the clock and realize I had another whole glorious hour to sleep.

But then I realized my baby can't tell time. She won't know she's supposed to sleep an extra hour to get up at the same clock time. She'll want to get up at 6 o'clock because it will feel like 7 to her. Instead of getting delicious sleep, I'll be singing Sesame Street songs. And then tomorrow night she'll want to stay up an hour later.

Man, I hate Daylight Savings Time. Who invented it anyway? Well, there happens to be a very good explanation of the history of Daylight Savings Time posted by emptynest242 in the God Bless America group.
