When you don't have young kids, you welcome the end of Daylight Saving Time because it means you get a sleep-in on the first morning after the clocks go back.
When you do have young kids, all it means is that they are suddenly needing to go to bed when it's only about 6pm.
I was intending to keep TLM up till 6.30 tonight (she has been going to bed at 7pm Daylight Saving Time), but she got so stroppily tired that it ended up being a little earlier than that. It'll take a week or more of gently pushing the envelope (so to speak), before she's back to a 6.30-7pm bedtime, I think.
Once I start working, I'll be facing the prospect of rustling her straight into dinner, bath and bed, right after I get her home from daycare - and with no time for parental playtime in between. Summer, I'm missing you already.
