When I’m not writing about parenting or engaging in parenting activities, I’m a political blogger. As anyone who reads the politics pages knows, no self-respecting political writer can get through a single article without spewing forth incomprehensible statistics like so much pea-soup vomit. Political analyst types luuurrrrvvveeee numbers because it makes us sound smarter.
The occupational hazard of relying on numbers for everything is that I tend to start breaking everything into numeric data points. (I know, don’t you want to invite me to your next cookout and engage me in a deep conversation about polling stats? I’m awesome like that.) In other words, I count stuff in my daily life. I track trends. I analyze sequences. In short, I have turned parenting into an exercise in comparative statistics in order to make some sense of this chaotic responsibility of being a mom.
I broke down the “mom stats” of my usual week for you all, Lego stomping, coffee slurping, and butt-wiping all included. Click through to see how it all plays out!
