Mom Mom Mom Mom

Mom Mom Mom Mom Mom. I hear that word, that name, at least a hundred times a day surely.

Some days I feel like I might just have to scream, or at least change my title, if I hear "Hey Mom" one more time in a day.

I thought, it would be interesting to keep track of how many times in one day I do actually hear "Mom" or "Hey Mom". I began this morning.

6:45 AM - ds is literally standing outside the "weight room" door so that when I come out he can accost me with the first "Mom" of the day. I'm not sure how long he's been standing there but as soon as the door opens, "Mom look I made a new string game I call it the sandtimer." He has a long "Cat's cradle" type string attached to his little toes and fingers and yes, it does indeed look like a sandtimer.

6:53 AM - "Hey mom looky!"

6:54 AM - "Mom" followed by a complaint on the lack of cereals in the house he likes.

6:56 AM - "Mom did I just say microwaving?" (he made up a little ditty as to how he'll make his own hot oatmeal)

7:07 AM - "Why did dad just go off outside quickly?" (not sure if this was prefaced by "Mom" but he was calling this question down to me)

Let's see what the tally will be at the end of the day....

We have plenty of days like that, especially when my son or my oldest is up early. (My middle child will happily entertain herself for hours without speaking, praise the Lord. :)
