Here is what our day looked like by the numbers:
0: the number of naps taken today.
3: the number of words in Natalie's new favorite phrase "let me go" which she waits to use at the top of her lungs and only if we are in crowded public places.
6: the number of meltdowns we had today... before noon.
8: the number of people who gave me nasty looks as my child had a meltdown in the parking lot, effectively making me feel about 4 inches tall.
17: the number of crayons I picked up off the floor over the course of the day.
34: the number of minutes it took me to get my daughter in her carseat after lunch today.
584: the number of times today I questioned if I could be a stay at home mom or not.
Needless to say, it's been a long day over here and one that warranted a nice warm hot bath to detox while praying that tomorrow is a better day. Please for the love of God let tomorrow be a better day.
