I was cutting fingernails the other day and was tallying up some of the numbers of things in our home.  It kind of amazed me when I really sat down to think about it!

We have...
  • Soon to be, 140 fingers in our home (goes great with my favorite saying to my children, "Many hands make light work!")
  • Also soon to be 140 toes with 14 pairs of socks a day to go through (probably explains all the singles in my sock basket)
  • 14 brains- you would think that would be useful, but sometimes it makes things REALLY difficult!
  • 28 eyes to see EVERYTING with!
  • 14 mouths- that makes things REALLY loud sometimes
  • 14 tummies to feed AND that can get the stomach flu!
  • 12 potty-trained people- well, most of time!
  • 14 noses that need kleenex
  • 28 ears to hear with- selective hearing at times!
  • 2 benches, 12 chairs, 1 booster chair,1 high chair, and one 9 ft table in my dining room
  • 1 couch that seats 6 adults but for now, while their buns are still little, our entire family if we need to
  • 1 TV
  • 9 slots for school notebooks and 9 pencil boxes
  • 2 bathrooms (not enough but better than 1!)
  • 1 6X9 ft backyard (I am not kidding!  Not big enough either but better than none!)
  • 19 bunnies (WAY to many but better than 100!)
  • 1 roll of toilet paper a day- and that's a double roll!
  • 1 gallon of milk a day, 7 a week, 30 in a month!
  • 3 dozen eggs for breakfast with 1 loaf of bread
  • 5 loads of laundry a day to wash, fold, and put away (well, sometimes I have to put 15 loads away because I get a touch behind!)
  • 3 drivers, 4 cars in our driveway
  • a van that seats 15 people
  • 6 carseats/booster seats to buckle
  • 10 bikes in the garage
  • 28 feet to go and share the gospel of Christ
  • 28 hands to fold in prayer
  • 14 spirits to spend eternity in heaven with each other!
