Daylight Savings Time is a little bit of a mixed bag for most of us. Springing forward is depressing in the sense that we lose an hour, but exciting because it means Spring is just around the corner. Personally, I love the fact that I can now get up early to run at 6 a.m. and not be doing so in the dark. But for moms and dads and anyone with a day job, the week after the time change can be brutal.
Ask any parent and they will say most children are "off" for at least a week following the time change.
But we need to buck up. For any parent who travels with their child, this is not unlike a small time change and kids survive those all the time. We moms and dads of the world need to stop complaining and whining about our sleep and start looking on the bright side (literally). Here are some Daylight Savings perks:
Seriously, people, we are losing ONE hour. In the grand scheme of things it is a small price to pay for all that we gain. Besides, for the real whiners, we get it back in the fall.
Spring 2012: BRING it! I say thank goodness and the universe for Daylight Savings!
Do you hate Daylight Savings?
