Heads or Tails - Three

Barb over at Skittles' Place has started a fun meme called Heads or Tails. Every week she calls heads or tails - HEADS we get to write or post whatever we want about her chosen topic - TAILS we have to do just what it says.

Today it's HEADS - Three (3)

I started trying to figure out how or where the number 3 has played a significant part in my life. Let me see... I would have had three kids, if I'd had one more. My mom had three kids by the time she was 25, and then about 6 (2x3=6) years later, she had another one. When she had that last baby, that meant I had three brothers, and not one single solitary sister. It's quite interesting when you look at the number of kids my mom and her three sisters had. My mom, the oldest, had a girl first (me) and then three boys. The next sister also had a girl first and then three boys. Of the other two sisters, one had four boys and the other had four girls, until she got remarried and had one more girl. If you take those girls and those boys and add them together, you get nine - which is really just three times three!

I'm really stretching here... Go visit some other Heads or Tails participants.


  1. Hi! The HOT theme really keeps us thinking! I had a hard time also!

    Thanks for taking a visit at my blog.
    Take care!

  2. This makes me wonder why I didn't say that I was the youngest of three children!

  3. Love that you had multiples in yours, too! :D

  4. well I think you were very creative with your three....I had 3 girls...I am the youngest girl of 12 children which was 6 boys and 6 girls so there is 4 sets of 3...hmmmm we could go on here....hope you are having a great day....

  5. Well, that was a lot of fun :-) Very odd how the number three were playing in there! Great!


  6. Great take on the theme for the week, and hello from Pickett, WI!

  7. Hey, there's nothing wrong with being creative! I thought your ideas were great.

    On the new domain thing...it's a scary leap. I just did it b/c my Google PR finally went down to zero. So, I thought I could at least get a few opps that excluded Typepad....but now I'm really limited. Basically, you have to give up everything (Technorati rank, Alexa - and my Alexa was finally getting really low). The problem I'm going to have too is getting the small number of people that actually visit me to use the new address, since the old address still works...but I need it to for PPP. So I think you asked about that, and the PPP posts I have done in the past month are still accessible with the address I submitted them with originally. I just submitted a ticket to PPP that explained how I have a new domain name, and they changed it within about a day. I don't know how it works with blogspot, but I had directions for using godaddy and Typepad to set up domain mapping. I'm still unclear if the Real rank is going on just my new domain or the old one as well. It's been much higher since I switched to the new domain, so I guess that suffered as well. I still don't know if I made the right decision, but I guess I'll find out over the next few months. If Google had just left us all alone then things would be a lot simpler! :)

  8. Creative thinking

    Thanks for popping by my blog. Always good to see your there

  9. Okay maybe you were stretching it a bit far, but it was funny.

  10. Your post was very interesting and fun this week. I'm volunteering to be your cyber-sister, since you never got a sister ;-)

    Thanks SO much for the advice about my comment box size problem! The 'open in new tab' is a great idea and that's what I'm doing now - I REALLY appreciate that tip! You are saving me from losing my mind - you've already proven yourself to be a great cyber-sis :-)

  11. Your blog looks good...did you do something different?

    Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!

  12. @ angelika - thanks! I think they're cute, too.

    @ gellianne - I'm always amazed at the thought people put into it and what they come up with.

    @ skittles - I usually go around reading everyone else's and wonder why I didn't think to say that!

    @ secret agent mama - I had to find those threes somewhere.

    @ natalie - thank you.

    @ smalltown rn - 4 sets of 3, yes, there you go with more multiples.

    @ lifecruiser - thanks

    @ sassy lucy - I checked to see where Pickett is because I didn't know!

    @ mama pajama - thanks, Holly! I'm going to do it.

    @ vic grace - I love dropping by your blog!

    @ tammy - You should see me stretch. I'm really very flexible!

    @ misty dawn - yes, you can be my cyber-sister. This is all so exciting! Glad I could help with the popups. They were bothering me for the longest time until I figured that out.

    @ jenn - I'm not sure when you came by last, so I'm not sure what's different. I added the snowmen over the weekend, and fixed the layout so Tammy could scroll sideways.

    Thanks, everybody, for stopping by!

  13. That's a lotta boys! It's fascinating to hear statistics such as this. It sure gives credence to the thought that the mom has a huge influence on the gender of the baby.

  14. Great take on the 'three' theme! :)


I love your comments! Keep them coming.
