The clocks go back but the baby doesn’t

So, the clocks go back on Sunday. In the past, this meant an extra hour in bed though this year I’m not so sure as I don’t know how to explain the concept of daylight saving hours and a lie-in to baby Reuben. Or anything else to do with sleeping and lie-ins.

Instead, this year, I might be up and awake at 2am (with the baby, not sipping cocktails in a bar…) so I can make the adjustments in real time.
