I like Spring Forward!

10th March 2008

Before kids, the "fall back" time change used to be something to look forward to.  But now, it just throws a wrench into already not-so-good sleeping habits in our house.  But Saturday night, I happily realized that my kids normal 6:00 to 6:10 waking – as regular as an alarm clock – could likely be 7:00 on Sunday morning with the time change.  SWEET!  Sure enough, Josiah slept until 7:10, just in time to wake us up for church.  And I had to get Analise up at 7:55 so we could be out the door a few minutes later. 

We spent all afternoon outside playing on the playground at the bike race (pictures coming soon, I hope!), missed the sacred afternoon naptime, and came home just in time to fall into bed.  I’m not sure if it was all the playing and fresh air or the time change, but the kids slept great.  Analise was up just before 7 and Josiah was up just after 7.  I hope this trend continues…

Quiet day here.  I’m trying to figure out what I want to do with myself.  Analise has a cough and runny nose, so she’s snuggled on the couch watching a movie.  Josiah’s running around making a mess.   Just another day in the Toone house!   Happy Monday!

    Ah, that was what we were hoping for also… a little sleep in because Elizabeth would be confused and awake an hour later and maybe carry that for a while (sleeping in just an hour alter). Well, she gave us half an hour extra on Sunday.. and today negative 15. Errr…. I guess that didn’t work as hoped for. Too bad!
