It is now almost 8pm and I'm trying to get as much of this post typed up before 8 because that is when I'll be getting miss Kate ready for bed. Getting a head start..I've got five minutes!
My day starts anywhere between 6am and 7. Today it was 6:45. And it's always to the sound of pounding feet running across the wood floor to my room. Kate's awake and the day begins.
I get my coffee and her hot cocoa and get to sit for about five or ten minutes then I have to wake up Daniel.
I drink my coffee and catch up on emails and blogs while he gets ready for school.
7:30am- Go out to check on the garden. Try to conquer the gophers. Gophers:10/Humans:0
8:10- Daniel gets to school. Kate and I head home.
8:15- Retrieve stroller, phone and Kate's bear and "ni ni" from small canal. Kate decided to push the stroller real hard then let go. Thankfully nothing was lost!
We decided to keep walking instead of heading home.
8:35- Scarf down some banana bread and feed Kate.
9:20- Bible reading and prayer.
9:45- Put roast in crockpot.
11:30- Playtime with Kate
12:30- Lunch & Paper Mario on the gamecube.
Around 1:30 I wished she would take a nap but I knew better. Does she even look tired? She was singing at the top of her lungs "let it go" from Frozen...
3:50- Add veggies to crockpot. Finish dishes in sink.
5:30- Dinner then clean up.
6:30- Go for another walk with the kids to get their energy out.
7:20- Make popcorn for the kids and escape to my room for ten minutes of peace before I have to get them ready for bed. Just to wake up and do it all over again. Don't et me wrong, I love being a stay at home mom. Some days are long and boring but there are plenty of things that keep me on my toes to make up for those low key days. I wouldn't change my life for the world. ;-)
It is now 10:02pm and I am actually pretty awake. Probably because this is my only "me" time. But I'm off to bed because this stay at home mom needs as much sleep as she can get. 6am comes quick.
And if you read all of that, kudos to you!
