At 10:37 p.m., all I can do is count to ten. It was a long day for this grandma.

One spilled dinner.

Two crying grandchildren.

Three recent birthdays.

Four orders of kabobs.

Five adults at the table.

Six funfetti cupcakes served.

Seven, hmmmmmm.

Breathe in, breathe out.

Eight hours until I start again.

Nine grandchildren in all, soon to be

Ten.

    I love the pace of this! And the ending with the word ten. I started reading it to the tune of the 12 Days of Christmas song…
