Mean, Median, & Mode

I think this title summarizes my life--a life that I'm very satisfied with.  I have three children--two girls (6th & 7th grade) and a boy (in kindergarten).  I have average parenting skills.  I'm happily married (the one area I am blessed to be "above average").  I am average height & weight.  Average hair color.  Over the course of a year, I am average in physical fitness.  My intelligence--average.  My social life--average (though on the low end).  My cooking skills--average.  The cleanliness of my house--overall is average.  It's a good life, and one that allows me to empathize with many people. 

Within the first 40 days of 2010, I will officially become a mother of a teenager, and I will turn 40.  I'm hoping my parenting skills will at least maintain their "average" status through these teen years.  As far as 40, average looks pretty good to me!
