Daylight Savings Time
This Sunday we spring forward in the face, but losing an hour, so when I'm excited that when this cold and snowy winter finally come to the spring season, we lose an hour.
Some of the summer proves to be even more dangerous. There are more reports of increased traffic and industrial accidents. Some say that to heart attacks to increase during this period. In general, the biggest obstacle is the lack of sleep, we already sleep deprived culture.
For our family, not so much now that the problem because it adjusts to the light of day every day. Somehow the change baffles me as much as I did when my children were babies and toddlers.
At that time, it was torture to get the kids to bed on time. I would like habit of putting a child down at 19:30 at night, but when she began to stay away from the light, has become more difficult to calm down and go to sleep. Just before the bath, I would pull the curtains and try to make room as dark as possible, so that you do not object to going to bed.
It is often served only a couple of times when the wind is blowing just enough to ripple to spread and cause a small drop in the sun looks like. Then I heard, "the sun is still high, because I need to go to sleep?" But like I said, it worked for most of the time when they were very young and just learning to talk and tell the time.

Now that my kids are older, they get up long past day, but it's the long sunny days that marked to play more, run later, and bask in the warm spring days more fun and open air, they usually stay awake for several hours. So we start routines nights later, which means bedtime is pushed a bit.
Gradually we got used to longer days, but at first seems a bit abrupt change discordant. Spring is a fun time of year. We start freezing on the little league fields and end up sweating, holding bottles of water ... just in time to inaugurate the summer, and best of all holidays.
