If you’re a sports fan, you’ll know numbers don’t lie (especially if you cheer for the Toronto Maple Leafs).
Here are the numbers from William and Vivian’s 7th birthday party, which I bravely hosted yesterday.
10: Kids in attendance, including my own
2: Kids I temporarily lost sight of at the playground (including William)
5: Minutes it took to play Pin the Tail on the Donkey
2: Donkey’s tails that were placed rather phallic positions
2: Capfuls of Hydrogen Peroxide used on one skinned elbow
12: Iced cupcake tops eaten
2: Cupcake bottoms eaten
10: Cupcake bottoms found dismembered on dining room floor
3: Times I used my I’m-a-Nice-Woman-But-Listen-To-Me-Or-Else teacher voice
16: Times I looked at the clock
221: Gifts my kids seemed to get
3: Gift bags I forgot to hand out
2: Hoodies left at my house
31: Times I told my mom I could not do this without her
2: Glasses of wine I enjoyed on the deck post party
8: Times I tweeted using the hashtag #IHateKidsBirthdayParties
1: Birthday party I plan each year, another blessing of the 2-for-1 deal we got on kids.
How was your weekend, by the numbers?
