Today’s Fun Fact: Team Steinkellner By the Numbers.

21 May

34 years together. (30 if you are the kind of person who thinks you need a ring. And Cheri’s Nana Betty was that kind of person.)

117 scripts. (Some unproduced, treatments, pilots that only made it to script, one play, two and a half musicals, several mock commercials, a ventriloquist’s act and one rarely acted upon Instaplay business plan.)

14,038 scenes (whether written or improvised, watched or participated in, directed or wish you had directed, professional or laughingly amateur. Some professional only in theory and some brilliantly amateur.)

264,099 hours of parenting– give or take. (With three do you multiply by three? With two parents do you divide by two? And when the Mom is doing over 2/3 of the work, what then?)

53,000 meals (Zero where food hasn’t been snitched off your plate sans permission before you’ve even dug in.)

78 vacations. (Most of them to places we have already been to.)

97 meetings with teachers. (All of them more fun than a lot of birthday parties.)

3 Big Fights. (Open for discussion.)

One serious life scare. (Blessedly resolved.)

One lovely lifetime that we’ve shared more than most conjoined twins.

All adding up to every definition of the word sweet.
