Okay, so I had nothing to do after the kids went to bed last night, so I looked up an age difference calculator and played with it. Here's what I plugged in:
Jack was born on 2/8/05 at 7:36pm. Liv was born on 4/8/2006 at 10:35am. Leia was born on 10/4/09 at 5:12am. Liesl was born on 10/4/09 at 5:13am.
This is what I learned:
Jack and Liv are 60 weeks, 3 days, 13 hours, and 59 minutes apart in age.
Jack and Liesl are 242 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours, and 37 minutes apart in age.
Jack and Leia are 242 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours, and 36 minutes apart in age.
Liv and Liesl are 182 weeks, 0 days, 18 hours, and 38 minutes apart in age.
Liv and Leia are 182 weeks, 0 days, 18 hours, and 37 minutes apart in age.
What does all of this mean?
It means that in the time span of 242 weeks, 4 days, 8 hours, and 36 minutes, I managed to give birth to FOUR children. And I nursed them all, which accounts for roughly two whole years of my life; nine months more of nursing if you count the twins as two separate babies nursed and double their nursing time. So, I guess I nursed my four kids for the equivalent of thirty-three months, which is the exact same amount of time I was pregnant with all of them combined (if you count the twins as two separate pregnancies, which you could because they're fraternal twins that had separate sacs...just two different babies that just happened to be born at the same time, really). Yeesh.
Don't even get me started on the numbers involved in these kids or my whole family. Jack and Liv were both born on the 8th of a month. Liesl and Leia were born on the 4th of a month. Double that and you have 8. Our dog was born on the 8th of a month. Add Jack's 8, Liv's 8, plus Hubby's 13 and you get my 29, which we figured out prior to the twins being born. Add Jack's 8, Liv's 8, Liesl & Leia's two 4's and Hubby's 13 and you get 37, which is how old I was when the twins were born. Add everyone's numbers and you get completely and utterly confused. I guess I should've gone to bed earlier. Sigh...
All I know is that's a lot of kids in a short period of time. That's also a lot of booby juice. I'm not bragging, but I am. Heh.
