Dear Inventor of Daylight Savings...

Respectfully sir, you suck. Clearly, you have no children. How do I know? Because had you been in a position to EVER desperately need your toddler to take a nap, reliably and at a set hour, you could never have schemed up such a heinous torture device like moving the clocks backwards and forwards. Parents all over the country are cursing your name right now. And they will be again tonight when their children are up until 9pm before showing the slightest hint of sleepiness. I hate you.


Sincerely,

Exhausted and Angry in DC...

Hear hear!!

We have a totally upredictable 3 hour morning nap followed by what I can only guess is no afternoon nap and a very cranky boy by bedtime.

Sarah, darling, did the whole switch to DST sneak up on you? Have you not changed a clock ever in your life? Small adjustments could have been made (of course, the Congress moved it up by however many weeks it was, or it follows an Easter-like prediction method). Of course, my golden children seemed to adjust themselves during the week prior. Annoying during that week, but a blessing. Of course, my babies just turned 11 (yesterday) and 8 (2/29). Sigh. (See National Treasure for a DST inventor/suggestor reference !)
