You Mean, There's A Number For That Too?

OK~ There's a number for everything we seem to do anymore. I would love to know if I am the only Mom that is responsible for knowing the numbers to everything, for everyone in the whole house?

Just today we were making a purchase and ( I won't say "his" name) he turned to me and said, "What's the number?" Yep, there is a number for everything! Do you remember the numbers you need to know each time you make a purchase?

So, I started to think. You know, thinking can often be kind of dangerous. Just last summer we were in a hardware store in Estes Park and our youngest son was going to purchase his Colorado fishing license. Well, he did not know his Social Security number, SO, he turned to me and I just rattled it off! As a Mom, I guess we are programmed to learn all of these numbers. Thankfully Mom knew the numbers, so he could fly fish along the trail to Black Lake in Rocky Mountain National Park.

There are numbers for school registration forms, sports registration forms, physical forms, and anything else you can think of. We need to know social security numbers, telephone numbers, birth dates, vaccination dates, surgery dates, addresses, and the list goes on and on.

And just when we Moms think we have all of the right numbers memorized, someone will ask, "Mom, do you remember my password to the kindle?" Yep, these electronic devices have added to the number madness!

The times are a definitely changing and Moms everywhere are going to have to find ways to remember the numbers and passwords that they need to know.

How do you remember all of the numbers for everyone in your household? For me, it's just been through repeating them over and over for 20+ years! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?


  1. That picture in incredible. I want to be there now!

  2. Like you said, when you have to write or say certain numbers so many times you end up just remembering them. I'm the "keeper of the numbers" in my household too.


I always love feedback on my blog!
