our messy messy life by the numbers.

1,347,849...........rain drops on the clothes I hung to dry on the line last night.  Taylor said the clothes were officially frozen when he left for work this morning.  Am I the only person who firmly believes that the dryer shrinks clothes?

12......................times Henry demanded that the "ho" music be turned "loud" this morning.  This kid is just like his daddy sometimes.  And, no, we weren't listening to rap!

4........................other crazy mamas who also braved the rain and freezing temperatures for library story time this morning.

1........................of those crazy mamas said our weather was 'balmy' compared to the weather she experienced back home in Canada last week.  Balmy?  I don't think so.

2.5.......................hours and counting that Liza has been asleep.  I like it.  A lot.

0.........................presents under our Christmas tree.  At first, I was wary about trusting Henry with wrapped presents but now I'm just too lazy to actually make it happen.

6.........................loads of laundry I washed and folded yesterday.  Ridiculous?  Yes.

23.......................books on the floor in our living room.  Henry is absolutely obsessed with reading lately and demands that we read to him all day long.  I am happy to oblige!

8.........................kids expected at tomorrow morning's playdate at a friend's house.  The plan is to watch Charlie's Brown Christmas.  Surely I'm not the only mama saying a little prayer tonight that the kids sit still and actually watch the movie so we can sit back and chitchat.

62.......................facebook feeds about natural childbirth, breastfeeding and attachment parenting that I dutifully read every.single.day.  Like our laundry, it gets a bit ridiculous at times.

2.........................days until our 5 year wedding anniversary!  We certainly do have a lot to show for the past 5 years!

7.........................times Taylor has called me from work today.  I think he loves me.

1.........................thankful mama to have a daughter with two intact eyes.

Hehe, I have always wondered how siblings make it to a year old without losing a limb or something!!

She won't have two intact eyes for long if he keeps poking her with that stick.

Balmy?! She's crazy.
