Not Sheep. Sleeps.
That's how we keep track of when important things are going to happen around here.
For example: Daddy used to travel a LOT...so each time, I'd make the kids a calendar counting down the sleeps until Daddy would be home. Each morning they would take turns marking through the previous nights' sleep.
Thought I'd share a few things we're counting sleeps for (although only one has a kid-marked calendar.)
2 sleeps until I get to meet our new pastor. (Ella had the flu when he came for the vote, so I missed meeting him)
3 sleeps until Ella is out of school on a weekday again...so I think I'll take the kids to see the 3D Toy Story movies...we love those!
6 sleeps until hubs and I get to leave town...with a bus load of friends headed to a couples' retreat in the mountains!
10 sleeps until we close on the new house and begin moving!!
11 sleeps until my baby turns 4...and each day he marks through his calendar while asking 'am I four yet?' or commenting 'this is taking forever!'
14 sleeps until we have to be out of the apartment! Although we can extend if need be, we WANT to be done b/c that means we're in our new home!
I don't typically keep track of ALL of those sleeps...but I felt that the list needed to be a little longer...
Are you 'counting sleeps' to anything important in your neck of the woods??
