the weekend in numbers

April 25, 2010

2 dear friends returned safely from the clutches of the UK, two weeks late

7 times my blackberry typed meatlpad when I tried to write meatloaf

12 number of times I threatened to buy an iphone

8 doses of children’s motrin administered

1 without actually waking her up

3 cats in need of grooming who didn’t get it

2 creepy guys who may or may not have followed Me all around the supermarket

1 toenail that’s probably going to fall off due to smashing it with a shopping cart while trying to dodge creepy guy stares

5 episodes of yo gaba gaba danced to, regardless of temperature

1 awesome cowboy hat purchased for $12 at target

1 far from awesome skirt that needs to be returned which convenient because of the

2 boxes of diapers I forgot to buy, being so distracted by my new hat

1 mocha frapucino purchased and consumed strictly to determine possible healing effects on jacked up toenails

4 opportunities to rock 26 pounds of toddler love back to sleep

1,213 tissues used to clean a snotty toddler face

20 extra minutes spent in shower hoping daddy would have better luck getting the toddler to nap than I did (worth it on every level).

So what did you do this weekend?

      Dude, it is a trick I tell you. Ok, so sleeping baby, hopefully on their back. Whoever is better at giving meds holds baby syringe full of liquid goodness. Other parent scoops up sleeping babe and holds close to chest at an incline, allowing baby’s head to tip back but not TOO far back. Squirt half of meds into baby mouth. Once baby swallows and doesn’t yak, squirt second half. Replace baby. Special Note: Do not freak out in the morning when there are pink medicine drops on baby’s pjs and start searching your child for hidden stab wounds.

    I LOVE that hat! Somehow I didn’t get you transfered over to my WP blog! But, you’re back up on my blogroll again! Shew…I started to panic thinking I was missing you.
