Spring Ahead

This weekend we had to set our clocks ahead an hour for day light savings time.  Most parents dread daylight savings time because it tends to mess with not only their children's schedules, but also their own.  My kids are older now and it really doesn't affect me so much...

Or so I thought!  Someone decided it would be an awesome idea to explain to my oldest son how daylight savings time works...bad idea!!!  It's hard enough for an adult to comprehend why we have to do this...let alone my 7 year old!  He didn't react the way I thought he would though...

He is so mad about it!  He said he can't believe that this has been happening for years and no one told him.  He is now boycotting DST!  Do you realize how tiring it is to constantly have to fight with him over what time is actually is?!

Me: "It's 7:30, time to get ready for bed"
Him: "Well, mom, technically it's 6:30 so I am not getting ready for bed yet"
Me: "Actually, it's technically 7:30 so yes you are.  We aren't going by the before time, we are going by the time it is now"
Him: "Well I'm not.  I didn't change my clocks.
Me: "Fine then, your new bedtime is 7:30 old time so go get in the shower"
