The Magic of Five

Take a guess:

1. I lost the final 5 pounds

2. I haven't had a Diet Coke in 5 days

3. I had 5 Diet Cokes today

4. My kids fell asleep at 5, giving Rex and I 5 hours to ourselves

5. Rex finally got that reversal, making me pregnant on Xmas eve, and turning our family of 4 into a circle of 5

6. The Jackson 5 just shot a reunion tour video on our cull de sac. Michael only winked at 5 kids this time.

7. Lindsay Lohan dropped by a few minutes ago, giving new meaning to the word "high five"

8. I just won five thousand dollars in the "Who can eat the most Mothers Animal Cookies without puking more than 5 times" contest

9. I transistioned from Catholic to Muslim and now bow five times/day to Mecca

10. My New Year's baby turned 5 today

Hmm...those are tough ;)

Though #3 is a close second, I'm guessing #10 is the winner.

And the photo? Absolutely fricking adorable!

Mama P!!! I was so excited that you could be bitchy and bloggy while pregnant. You spoiled it!

Love that good baby boy! (ours are just 3 months apart!) You'll love 5!

While 3, 4, and 8 all sound fun, I'm going to bet my money on 10.

Your son is so absolutely adorable I am pretty sure the 5 is how many times i would kiss him should i pass him on the street.

Well number five had me all giddy then I read six and seven. So I guess it's 10.

Caaaa-yuuuute! What a cute, cute big boy! I know, it's bittersweet for you. Can you believe how fast the time goes? When both of my kids turned 9 I went into a funk b/c I realized my time at home with them was 1/2 over just.like.that. Of course, there are days I'm glad about that :), but they are few and far between. Enjoy Stink in all his stinkiness for this next year, Mama P. xxxooogretchen
