Monday Mumbers #1

This is my first "Monday Mumbers" post. Visit Good Enough Mama for more Mumbers action.

btw, I love the title of this because it reminds me of how Cuddlebug used to say "mumbers" instead of numbers. :) Bearhug called them "umbers." Whatever you call them, here are mine for today:

14 number of times I felt like bashing my head against a wall this weekend

0 number of times I actually DID bash my head against a wall this weekend (aren’t you proud of me?)

4 number of times I wished we could wear sweats and tennis shoes to church, because I would prefer to be dressed more appropriately for the 3-hour workout / wrestling match that is church with Bitty.

35 number of puzzle pieces that went flying when Bitty got mad

number of feet in the air the puzzle pieces flew

2 number of people who had to duck to avoid being hit by flying puzzle pieces

5 number of times Bitty flipped the lights on and off at church yesterday (a record low for him, woo-hoo!)

1 number of times I got to the light switch before Bitty did (he was unimpressed)

2 number of boys in our family who did great at church yesterday (yay!)

26 number of "rainbows" Bitty made with the water fountain (it does kind of look like a rainbow when you turn it on)

4 number of times I held Bitty up to “lick the rainbow” (because he doesn’t actually drink out of the water fountain, he just sticks his tongue out and jumps back as soon as it touches the water)

5 number of times he stuck his hands in the "rainbow"

2 ounces of water he got on his shirt

0 number of backup shirts I had for him (oops)

2.3 estimated number of miles I walked carrying Bitty around the church building in a circle (ok, I can hear Cuddlebug correcting me in my head, and he would be right, technically it was a rectangle not a circle).

40 approximate number of pounds that Bitty weighs (it's not like he'll actually stand on a scale long enough to get an exact weight)

79 number of pounds Bitty feels like he weighs after carrying him for 10 minutes

87956743 number of pounds Bitty feels like he weighs after carrying him (on and off, mostly on) for 2-3 hours.

17 number of days left in the school year

5 approximate number of weeks of routine-change-induced-angst we have to look forward to (before and after last day of school)

I may have gotten a little carried away there... :)

Ahhh, life with a disability. My son is now 23 and yesterday there were 17 times he told me Tim Allen was Buz and Tom Hanks, Woody in the Toy Story Movie. Okay, I exaggerated, it was probably more like 13.

Enjoyed your post!!

You only felt like bashing your head 14 times? I think I can beat that! ;)

Thanks for playing along!

I love it! I totally agree about church attire. At church, not only do I get my kids, but I also help out with the children's ministry, and let me tell you, I can't count the number of times I have wished I was wearing pants instead of a skirt.

I have missed church the last month and a half, because of my baby's birth, but I hear that my 2 other kids sure gave their dad a run for his money at church, fighting over cheerios, etc.
