Day 1 of 7 in my “Week in the Life” project. A look inside a typical Monday for our family. (Total photos taken: 128)
8:03AM | BREAKFAST. Toast with homemade jelly. Extremely delicious and extremely messy!
8:14AM | GETTING DRESSED. We usually let Casey pick out his shirt for the day. This is a big decision and he usually changes his mind at least three times.
8:33AM | PICKING UP. Once both kids are out the door, I do my daily “clean sweep” of the house. This usually includes making beds, opening shades, and picking up whatever movies Allison has pulled off the shelf.
11:45AM | LUNCH BREAK. After a quick bite to eat, I use the rest of my lunch break to fold some laundry left over from the weekend.
1:03PM | BYE GREG! My husband heads to work and leaves me to a quiet house (at least for a few hours).
1:28PM | DELIVERY! Allison’s baby book has arrived! One year of hard work bound into a book – it’s a beautiful thing!
4:15PM | PICK UP ALLISON. I pick up Allison from daycare and let her watch a TV show while I finish my work day. Today I saw her chewing on something… Turned out to be a cold French fry she found under the couch. I swear she’ll eat anything!
5:03PM | HOMEWORK. Casey is dropped off and we work on his homework. Today we’re practicing writing our letters.
5:14PM | SWIMMING LESSONS. Both kids had swimming lessons tonight. Thankfully my Mom was on hand to help!
7:15PM | DINNER! I put a meal in the crock pot this afternoon. All I needed to do was add a few peppers and it was time to eat! (I’d be lost without my crock pot!)
7:45PM | BATH TIME. My little swimmer can’t get enough of the water. She cries when it’s time to get out!
8:02PM | BED TIME STORY. Our nightly routine. Bath. Brush Teeth. Book. And bed.
And then I use two precious, quiet hours to work on my website and respond to messages. It’s lights out by 11:30PM.
