Daylight Saving Time Ends This Weekend

Set your clocks back an hour Saturday night before you go to bed. If you are a night owl, set them back at 2AM Sunday, because that's the end of Daylight Saving Time in the United Sates this year. This one is the "good" time change. If you are on a schedule, this gives you an extra hour of sleep, the one that you lost back in the spring. If you can't sleep longer than you normally do, then you'll be up early and rarin' to go for a few days before you get used to it.

WhatsUpMoms sees the upside to this time change when it comes to getting kids to fall asleep in the evening and up for school on time. If you can keep the effect for yourself until Tuesday, then you can be at the polls early to vote. -via Boing Boing

That was always hard in the spring, but if I remembered, I would change clocks early in the afternoon so the kids would go to bed early. Not that they went to sleep...

The fall time change is much easier.

Pre-internet, my husband would change half the clocks and I would change half. But we rarely coordinated which half correctly, so some clocks were never changed and some were changed twice. Now, I don't even bother because the phones and computers are set automatically. I get the other clocks fixed sometime in the next couple of days.

When my daughter was 4 she had a total meltdown when I tried explain daylight savings time to her. She absolutely refused to go to bed an hour earlier. Finally, I gave up trying to explain how it worked, put her to bed and changed the clocks. Next day I never said a word and all was back to 'normal'. Win-win, I guess.
