Day in my Life By the Hour

While I can't show you every second of my day...here are a few to keep you bored on your Thursday!

My days start somewhere between 6:30 and 7:30  (7:30 is rare)  I'm usually up by 7 to hang with the big kids before they leave for the bus...

Coffee starts my day....


and then off to settle Pole on the floor so mommy can get #4 and #5 fed, dressed and settled for the morning.


Hello Miss Thang


by 8am




laundry calls my name to be washed, dried, folded, and put somewhere

I have many of these (diaper changes a day too)


by 9 I'm ready to try and attempt a shower...never alone

#4 and #5 run the house while I take fast showers...at this point when I step out I hear screaming....I rush to the top of the stairs to see a mess in the gameroom

I'm not amused but know I need to be quick....it's nearing this one's nap...

I rush and get ready...clean the pillow mess...grab them a snack and settle this one in my arms for a nappy poo 10am



While he naps we have balloon time....and playing outside 10-11

All seems well....then of course meltdowns start

Sometimes before lunch Cole will wake and we start making lunches....

11:45


Today I think I might try solids again...let's try Carrots....we haven't tried those yet
I actually got about 5 bites in him and he only gagged twice!  We might be on to something....

More outside time....while mommy tries to eat 
12:30
cucumber, feta, bacon salad and some smashed cauliflower for me!

It's nearing naptime and I find this one outside refusing to come in!  Silly boy...Mommy always wins!  (grins)
1:30



We head upstairs for some reading time and then night night time.....



I then rush back down and put Cole down for another nap himself...hoping to catch a few moments of peace for Miss Lily and Mommy to do crafts...

2pm

Thought we would do some Spring Bunny glue and cotton pictures....and potty breaks

After this my day gets crazy with dinner for family...the smaller kids get something different....I let them make some PB&J sandwiches to see if they would eat....thankfully they took a few bites...(dinner is never a favorite meal for them)
5:30pm




Clean up the messes.....load more dishes...deal with screaming kids and put cole down for last nap

and off for bathtime
7pm

Bedtime is 7:30 for Cole....8 for Reid and 8:20 for Lily....big kids need to be upstairs by 9-9:30....

Mommy and Daddy put their feet up now!  
I head to bed by 10ish.....to start day all over again! 

             Now if I can just get  Cole sleeping through the night!

Love this. I especially love that you can look back and see what ate up all your time. Brad asks me what I did all day, and sometimes it all just jumbles together and I can't remember!
