    Daylight savings: Losing an hour of sleep

    This weekend is Daylight Savings, which means we are losing a precious hour of sleep.
    But sometimes the night just can't go by fast enough. Check out these reasons why you might want to lose an hour of sleep.
    And feel free to add your own here in this thread.

    I think the article was meant to be funny, but I agree with some-guy.  I personally am hoping we can stick with the 7:30 bedtime for our toddler but reap the benefits of a 7am wake up!

    I don't see it as losing an hour of sleep anyway - I see it as losing an hour of my weekend.  I personally think daylight savings should kick in at 2pm on a weekday.

    If you were planning to go to bed at 3AM (or later) then you actually GAIN an hour of sleep.

    Fall is worse because everyone else is going on and on about how great it is to gain an hour and all the parent of a young child gains is another hour of fussiness.

    On either end, it's one weird day, then everyone adapts.  Aside from having a change overnight from light to dark or vice versa during a commute on Monday, which is kind of distracting, we've never had a major problem with it.

    I don't mind losing an hour of sleep, because I won't!!. I'll sleep as long as I need on Sunday anyway). I am thrilled about getting back an extra hour of daylight! Having more daylight in the evening makes me feel more productive. And I can walk without a flashlight until 7, and think about warmer days coming. I love Spring Daylight Savings!!

    Oh.. and Moms have kids of all ages. Mine are 13 and 15 and  having the extra daylight makes the older kids happy, too. They won't miss that first hour of sleep because they will be jazzed about being able to be outside longer in the evening.

    Just saw on the news this morning that the incidence of car accidents goes up for the full week after the time changes, and it disturbs sleep for a full 5 days for adults.  They didn't mention kids, but if it takes more than a couple of days to adjust in your household you're in good, large company.

    Ideally I would have slept through reading on a noted news site about Daylight "SavingS" as opposed to the correct term, Daylight Saving time.
