Spring forward greatness

So, I have to say that I have been reading all of these facebook posts lamenting over the rottenness of spring forward and I have to say that I am left feeling very confused. And while, confusion is not a new emotion for me, I still can't get it. Spring forward? I think it is awesome. What am I missing? Granted. I may not be very representative of the norm population...

In fact as I write, I have Kelly's bass headphones on my enormous belly. Yes, I am that mom. Lucy can rock out to The Wailin' Jennys while I blog. Everyone wins.

But Spring forward. This amazing event in my life now is about a MILLION times better than fall back. What other time of year can I actually trick my children in to thinking it is still early so that we can sleep in until 9:30 on a Sunday morning. Bliss. Like almost-better-than-Christmas bliss. At 9 months pregnant, this lady is going to take all the extra sleep I can get. The icing on the cake though? It is still light outside at the end of the day which means that we can go on a family walk after dinner... if you have been following this blog for any amount of time than you know how I feel about family walks.

Now, this sleeping in is VERY short lived. Like tomorrow we are back to normal wake up times... But for a few days---- it is heaven.

What am I missing about the lost hour? I even worked the hospital the Sunday morning after and still... today was glorious.
