I love patterns, I love numbers, I love manipulating numbers and things into patterns. I love symmetry. I love palindromes. I love rhythm.
I love that growing up I had:
and for the first 4.5 years of parenthood, I had 1 daughter and 1 son.
The kids birthdays are in order by months except for one small 18 day slip in August.
What I'm not loving so much is:
We deal with our circumstances pretty well. Since we homeschool, we're not usually rushed in the mornings. We take turns. We spread things out. Luckily we have mostly boys which means we have options in times of emergency or occupancy conflicts.
But, when we've all been gone all day, say...to an all day basketball tournament...and we all arrive home with the same thing in mind...The line outside the door is not the only issue. It's the plumbing.
So...as I'm plunging a particularly stubborn clog yesterday I have a great revelation:
"Hey guys, I just thought of a great new Wii game!"
Do you think I'm on to something?
