Why Daylight Savings Time can bite me

For those of you that have known me a while, you have probably heard my rant about why Daylight Savings Time sucks.  Therefore, I will save you the many reasons I usually spout on the subject.

But...I would like to add a new one.

Kids don't get it. 

Desi doesn't realize that it's actually 7:30 because it sure feels like it's really 6:30.  Therefore, he doesn't understand why we're making him go to bed.  So, he'll make a fuss in his crib for 45 minutes or so until it's now approaching 8:30 (or 7:30 by his clock) and he actually is ready to go to bed.

Likewise, in the morning, when I have to wake him up for daycare so I can go to work, he is M-A-D. 

You know the phrase, "5 more minutes?"  Well...his is a variation of that.  Only, if I were to translate, it would probably be something like, "What the hell are you doing?  Do you know what time it is?  Get out of my room and let me sleep!"

Anyway...Daylight Savings Time is stupid.  Get rid of it.
