15: Total number of hours in the car with my children
13: Number of hours in the car that those children were awake and
fighting yelling playing rather than napping.
7,496: Number of times over the past several days I pleaded with my son to PLEASE walk faster than a snail’s pace.
7,477: Times he couldn’t hear me pleading because he was so far immersed into his own world of looking at leaves, rocks, dirt to bother with me.
5: Number of hours we spent walking around the zoo at a snail’s pace, still not seeing all of the animals.
100: Degrees. At the zoo. For five hours. Enough said.
7: Trips to Starbucks.
4: Fantastic days spent with incredible friends, laughing until my face hurt.
1: Happy Mommy to be home, about to sleep in her own bed.
24: Hours until Big Daddy gets home to sleep in that bed next to me.
I’m tempted to sleep until he gets here to make the time pass quicker. Wait a second. Back to reality. I’ll be up with the sun because the kids will be so! happy! to be home with all of their toys and their dog again.
