A) If the washer takes approximately 26 minutes and the dryer 50 minutes (although some loads of towels need an extra 20 minutes), how many loads of laundry could the frazzled mother complete in a 12 hour period? If she forewent sleep, a 24 hour period?
B) If Owen's mother took 1/4 cup dry baby oatmeal and dribbled enough water to make a decently textured palate appealing gruel, how much baby oatmeal would she have now? More importantly, if for every one spoonful that went into her baby's mouth, two came out, how much cereal would her baby eat?
C) If your almost five year old took a 2 hour nap--on an awesome day 2 1/2 hours--and woke up in the morning somewhere in the vicinity of 5-6 a.m. at what time would he awaken if he no longer took a nap?
D) If a mother spent the good portion of an hour preparing an extra special and tasty meal how many of her four children (who eat their meals at a table) would eat it and say "This is delicious, may I have 2nds please?" How many would say "Ewwwwww! Does this have cheese in it?"
E) What is the probability that a bed which has just had ALL it's bedding washed will get thrown up on and/or urinated on sometime in the next 24 hours?
(Just a few of the random thoughts that flutter through my head in a day. Oh, and whatever you answered to C you are most likely wrong--it was a trick question. Of course removing a nap would have absolutely no effect on his morning wake-up time. Silly you). ;o)
