Numbering my day

3 errands attempted and achieved with my 3 kids this morning.

3 errands in a row with my children is my absolute maximum.

10 people ahead of us in line at the post office.

2 times I said, "Because it's a post office not a playground!"

4 or more thoughts of leaving without mailing the package

6 = number of sewing projects I currently have in process

2 homemade pizzas created for dinner with

2 small helpers

1 set of frazzled nerves reluctantly agreed to let them help

3 year old says, "Making pizza is my favorite part of the day!"

1 Mama's heart melted

7 year old began the day like this. . .

7 year old ended the day like this. . .

$20 = amount of money Cameron from my son's class at school got for his last tooth

$1 = amount of money my son got for the last tooth he lost (a bottom tooth)!

"10 times a day!" I told my son. "Cameron must have brushed his teeth 10 times a day for the tooth fairy to think it was worth that much money!" I told my son.

2 times - In all fairness, we only manage to get ours brushed 2 times each day!
