Does anybody know what time it is? Does anybody really care?

There are many things that go on in this great world of ours that I do not understand. Physics, sea monkeys, rap music....But the concept of daylights savings time takes the cake. Yes, I understand the whole more sunlight more outside work concept. Benjamin Franklin had a pretty good idea back in the 1700s and I am sure it is great for the farmers of the world. However, I doubt that good Ole Ben had a 6 month old he had just gotten on a schedule when he decided to flip the clocks around. Not only all day Sunday did I have no earthly idea what time it was, Kirk still hasn't gotten used to the idea. For the past 4 or 5 days he has been sick (something between a mixture of RSV and the flu the best I understand) so the kid has had a hard time of it anyway. Then, throw in the fact that the time he is used to isn't the correct time anymore and we have a pretty hectic day. He doesn't know when to go to bed, when to wake up, when to eat, and when to nap. Maybe this isn't that hard for other people out there. Maybe there is some trick to getting the hang of this time deal. But for this family, we still aren't sure what time it really is!

Sorry, I'm not sure there is a sure fire way to combat this monster. I guess just keep doing what you were doing and he'll re-adjust. Best of luck to you.

Our family is having a hard time too!! No sickness on our end but lots of naps that are not in the schedule. We have all been exhausted. I totally hear ya! Good luck.
