By the Numbers

Here's my Tuesday,
by the numbers so far...
(in no particular order!)

Times Li'l Empress yelled, "NO!" in her sleep?  4 by 4:47 a.m.

Minutes snuggling Li'l Empress in bed while kids start their day?  12

Arguments mediated for middle siblings?  3 before 8 a.m.

Spankings Li'l Empress received for hitting or pinching the diva kitty?  3 (so far. . .)

Time-in's received by Li'l Empress for talking back to me and/or yelling at her brothers?  3

Loads of laundry washed, dried and waiting to be folded?  3

Emails sent to encourage our favorite teachers?  13

Tests proctored for Dr. D's benchmark programs?  2

Cups of oats in today's double batch of cookies?  6

Cups of butter in today's double batch of cookies? 2!

Minutes alone in the shower, singing along to Lady Antebellum? 12 blissful minutes. Count 'em. 12.

Tulips bloomed and swaying in the breeze?  6 (That's a two-fold yield over last year's blooms!)

Seeing that happy little flower makes
the whole day brighter, doesn't it?!

Oooh... a 12 minute shower. You needed that after the morning you had!

And our little friend Red Fish was at CHOP this past week - we just found out tonight.

:-) I'd hate to think what my numbers would look like. LOL I actually used my referee whistle yesterday.

That daisy is beautiful!!!
