Signage

Who will be the winner?

Abbey and I were looking at old family pictures  yesterday and she saw this one of her Dad and had to seize the opportunity.

 After washing 14 towels every two days, I had to post a little reminder.

I TOTALLY get extra credit.  I don't know why I deserve it, I just want some.

  1. Love this Sarah! And the note from Abbey about the short shorts! I just had (another) conversation about short shorts with my Madison! : )

  2. I've been going through family photos and found my oldest son with short shorts -I think he'd be embarrassed just to see it now. But that was really the style! The basketball players all wore them.
    How would you know how many towels are going down the laundry chute in two days? Are you the only one doing the laundry?
    Actually, I know the answer to this towel question: Someone doesn't want to take the time to hang the towel up properly and just "chutes it." Bet it's a boy...

    I wish you all the best!

  6. Your #19 pounds cracked me up! You know everyone will be checking in every 10 minutes to see if you had the baby. Hope you have someone on standby to post the minute you have...HER: 8#, 9 oz ;)

  7. That one up there (Hannah) is from me, your blog is great but she doesn't read it unless I forward a post. She was just signed in to google.

  8. Wait a second....do you have an anniversary this week? I kind of remember it being the same as mine...or maybe the week before.

  9. I'm TOTALLY hoping you don't have a 19 lb baby.

  10. I am the same with towels. My kids look at me like "poor woman just needs to get a life and then she wouldn't obsess so much about something so insignificant as towels." but towels can fill up a washing machine fast! I personally loved your sign. Fight the power!

  11. Love your notes.

    And Abbey's note to her dad cracked me up- we've told our girls they would be horrified to see what we wore in the 70's. With tall knee socks no less!

    Can't wait to hear that your *baby girl* is here:-) 8 pounds 8 ozs. How's that?

  12. 19 pounds is the winner!!

    Some of your boys look just like their father, that is so cool.

    My older sisters wore the most scandalous short shorts and skirts in the seventies, and they turned out just fine :)

    I'm guessing girl - 8lbs 2 oz

  13. I love your 19 lbs...because that's what it feels like, right? Oh my goodness, you are almost there. I have to throw my guess in - 7 lbs. 4 oz. and I say GIRL. I can't wait.

  16. Love the guesses...I am assuming since Isaac's says 6 lbs 20 oz, 7 lbs 4 oz is his real guess? LOL Love the note Abbey left her father!!
    We made it through move in day, and our first weekend apart...it was tough, but we did it!
    Can't wait for the baby to arrive. Best wishes to Isaac as he heads off to school!

  19. I think it is sweet that Patrick guessed girl. I'm thinking that he guessed girl because he would like a little sister?? I'm sort of hoping for a girl for you too!!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I <3 boys (I have 4 of them) but I really hope Abbey gets a sister!

  21. Just had the same conversation with my 16yr old step son as he went through.... wait for it.... 11 pairs of shorts in 5 days. 11!!! There are 8 in our family and that is a lot of laundry. I feel for you!

  22. Anxiously awaiting the results of your guessing game!! Isn't cool to think about all these people that you've never met are thinking of you and praying for a safe delivery and a healthy baby! Best of luck!!!

  23. I had the exact same conversation with my dad when I was about 14! The 70's were very bad, LOL!
    ...I truly hope you don't "win" with a 19lb baby! :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Nineteen pounds? LOL. Let's hope not. I did have a 11#, 12oz baby (#3, and the first boy). I sure was scared when I was told #4 was ALSO a boy!

    My family and I are praying for you!
