This morning in numbers

1 - diapers changed
2 - kids dressed
3 - kids fed
4 - loads of laundry brought downstairs
5 - total kids in my house this morning
6 - times somebody laughed
7 - time I woke up
8 - kids in the driveway playing "throw the ball on the roof"
9 - kids at the bus stop

The house is quiet, mostly, now. The Toddler is on my lap, coloring while I type. The boy is wanting to go to his friend's to play. We share a back yard, and most days the boys traipse between the two. Sometimes playing inside, sometimes outside - whatever it is they do, they're not nagging Mom.

Today I need to get the rest of the Girl Scout stuff together for the meeting on Thursday. I received an email last night about another girl wanting to join. That puts me at 7 girls. Still managable.

Just another day in paradise.

Given my lifestyle, it seems inconsistent, but I get such a kick out of my daily visit here.

Thank you, Gretchen, and good luck with the Girl Scouts.
