I always enjoy learning about how other people spend their days. It is so fascinating to see how we all do the same things
I also don’t keep a journal so I often find myself wondering how my life was at a certain period of time. To remedy that I decided to write some “Day in the life” posts.
Mostly for myself; but if you want a glimpse of my daily schedule I hope you enjoy them.
5:00 Baby wakes up. Nurse her. Put her back to sleep. Refuses to sleep so I try again. She is a bit fussy so try to nurse her again. It seems she was not done eating. Put her down.
6:00 I come downstairs and have breakfast. I work a little.
7:15 Wake up my son O. Help him get ready, pack his backpack and get him breakfast.
7:40 Go to schoolbus.
7:50 Back home. Continue meal prep and unload dishwasher. Man! SO.MANY.DISHES!
8:20 Done. Keep notes for this post and check email.
8:34 Baby is up! I go upstairs change her nappy and nurse her.
9:10 Done feeding. Take clothes downstairs to the dryer. Both downstairs. Baby sits in her browser and we talk for a while. After 10 min she’s over it so we take the laundry upstairs, fold it and put it away.
9:40 She’s fussy again so I just hold her.
9:55 Fallen asleep on me so I transfer her carefully to her bassinet.
9:56 Starts crying.
10:00 Seams like she is hungry, so I feed her again. I put her on her stroller while I run upstairs to get ready to go out. Typically she starts crying after a minute.
10:10 I’m all dressed up and ready to leave. Out the door we go. I arrive on time for my appointment but there is a delay. We stroll outside for a bit to avoid any unnecessary unhappiness.
11:15 My appointment is now over. Baby was fussy so I had to hold her in my arms. Back in the stroller & heading home.
11:00 Back home time for another feeding.
12:00 Fallen asleep. Fussy again while I grab a snack & drink a glass of water.. Turn on white noise on youtube. Take notes for the day.
12:15 Start on household chores. Change loads in the washer & dryer, hang laundry to air dry and fold the last load. Lastly I rub a piece of pork with herbs and olive oil and put it in the slow cooker.
13:12 All done. Time for some computer work.
13:36 Uploading photos and videos from my phone to my pc. Have a snack while reading blogs.
14:08 I leave my little lady to snooze and go pick up O from the schoolbus.He doesn’t want to hang out and goes straight for quite time.
15:20 Done with lunch. Time to wake up the baby.
17:00 After a very long feeding with multiple bathroom interruptions baby girl is down for a nap.
17:20 She is really refusing to nap, so I nurse her since it had been almost two hours since she last ate.
17:30 Baby now naps. With both kids napping time to tackle some more household chores.
18:20 I wake up my oldest, since he’s been sleeping for too long. I serve him a bowl of cereal I made this morning. I keep working on my computer.
19:00 My husband walks into the house as I am waking up the baby. We Chat for a while as he gets ready to take over father duties, i.e. play with the kids while I cook.
21:00 Bed time routine for both kids. Today is my husbands turn to give the baby a bath. We take turns because otherwise we fight over it! While baby eats I hear my son having a full meltdown. Kids! Baby starts crying; time for another nappy change. It’s obvious she was not quite done with dinner so I feed her again.
22:00 Both kids asleep. It’s dinner time for the adults.
22:30 We pick up our plates and head to the kitchen to pack lunches and clean up.
22:50 Work a little on this post and then on a different project.
23:00 I can hardly keep my eyes open. Time to get ready for bed.
24:00 Lights out. Goodnight!
