Daylight Savings Trauma

Somewhere between dragging my kids out of bed an hour early for church yesterday, then putting them to bed an hour early when they weren’t sleepy, then dragging my son out of bed (at 8 o’clock!) for preschool this morning, I decided the inventor of Daylight Savings Time must not have had children.

I looked it up just now: according to Wikipedia, DST was proposed by George Vernon Hudson.

And, he had a daughter. I assume his wife handled childcare. Apparently, George came up with the whole idea because he wanted more time after work to collect insects.


That kinda says it all, doesn’t it?
