OK, so technically it's now Saturday, but the count officially ended at 11:52 when Rachel finally went to bed. (I'm just writing now because Matt and I were up late watching TV and talking.)
First I want to note that before the youngers were all in bed, there were 8 more utterances of my name. Then Rachel brought the count to 9 more, so the final count for approximately 15 hours of time awake with kids around me was 265!
I think that is quite impressive and proves my point admirably. Who wouldn't be annoyed at being addressed 17.6 times per hour? (On average, naturally. I am married to Matt!)
Time to sleep. I need to rest up for tomorrow's onslaught.
