For me, daylight savings is met with mixed reviews. On the one hand it's not my favorite time for the simple fact that it really effects the way my children sleep. Me too for that matter. The kids are up even earlier than before; they've never been late sleepers. I'm finding myself awake in the middle of the night staring at the clock. Sleep deprivation is a really problem.
On the other hand, I enjoy the way it 'forces' us to slow down. When the sun goes down at 4:30, I feel the night closing in on us. In a good way! It envelopes us. Quiets things down, a bit anyway. The rushed feeling I feel when the kids are still outside until past dinner time is gone. The nights seem longer ( that can be good and bad depending on the day).
It really is a love-hate relationship. I will chose to embrace it. For now. I'm sure I will feel differently in the late, dark nights or winter. Craving my warm sunshine and long sunny days.
For now, I like slowing down.
