A memoir in NUM8ER5

Tomorrow we say good-bye to a dear friend.  This dear friend will be leaving at precisely 2 a.m.

60 minutes for Pookieville is:

20 time-outs for a Hammy

12 time-outs for a Bun

4 little people's bathtimes

6 times watering the lawn

1 mowing + 1 weed-wacking in the backyard

a Saturday privilege for each of the 4 oldest little people

a load of laundry on the extra dirty setting

a load in the dryer

a quiet time when it's from 1:30 to 2:30 p.m.

a visit with the home teachers or visiting teachers

120 hand-washings

an appointment with the Occupational Therapist

a visit to the library

60+ chances for a 3 year old to ask "Why?"

how long it takes to get to the zoo

300 pieces of folded laundry

Daylight Saving Time.  Yea or Nay?

Search & Win

NAY!!! I hate changing the clocks, including my body's clock. Boo!

Laurie/Mom/Grandma said...

Nay for sure! Great post. I never quite thought about it that way. I do like getting the hour back in the fall though.

Yay! As a kidless person I hated it because it meant I had to get up earlier for work (Springing Forward, that is). But as a parent it means my kids don't know what is happening and actually let me sleep in. :) It's Fall Back that I hate now.

Plus, in Spring it means the sun will still be out when my hubby returns home from work and HE can pick up the dog poop each day. :)

Nay. Resulted in a couple of cranky boys in my Sunbeams class, and my own cranky boy.

Amy- I have to agree with the dog poop benefit. That's a good reason alone!

Mary- Boo for cranky Sunbeams. You must have the early meeting. Our meeting is at 10 a.m. every year. Just the right time. mostly.
