Our schedule changed up a little bit this week! We went from laid-back, do-nothing summer days to school – and the fun, busy times it holds.
Here’s what a day in our life looks like right now. This was just another Wednesday. I love to document our “everydays” now and then! Yes, these are boring to most people…but they’ll mean a lot to us one day.
7:45 – Noah wakes me up as he leaves for work. I start my morning ritual: check email and social media on my phone, brush my teeth, manage a little bit of makeup, change clothes, and cook Emmie breakfast. This morning, she had eggs, grapes, and Cheerios.
8:15 – I wake Emmie up. I already have her clothes laid out, so all we had to do was quickly get ready. She watches an episode of “Fireman Sam” while she eats breakfast.
8:40 – We leave for school. It takes us about 10 minutes to get there. She’s still a little unsure of this whole school thing, so Mickey Mouse rode with us to keep her company today.
8:50 – I drop Emmie off, take care of a few things at the front desk of her school, and head off.
9:15 – I’m back home…my morning work starts. I straighten up the house a little, do the dishes, plan our grocery list for the week (that I’ll shop for on Thursday), and sit down to answer emails. I also got a little bit of blog work done – I submitted a draft for a post that’s coming up and I scheduled my post for that evening.
11:25 – I head back out. I dropped by Target to pick up a prescription and a surprise for Emmie. I head to her school.
11:50 – Emmie’s back! She gets her surprise in the car – cookies to bake with Mommy later. She insists on holding them the whole way home.
12:00 – We’re home, and we get started on our cookies. After they’re in the oven, I let her watch another Fireman Sam while I make lunch – turkey pinwheels and ants on a log.
I have a turkey wrap and chips…I know you’re so disappointed, but I forgot to take a picture. 🙂
12:45 – We frost the cookies and Emmie gets to taste test…she approves.
1:20 – Emmie thinks it’s the biggest deal to get to watch TV on our bed – so I let her for a few minutes before nap. She watches The Pirate Fairy as I tell her a million times to sit down and stop jumping.
2:00 – Emmie goes down for her nap. I’ll admit – this is the toughest part of the day to be productive for some reason. I’ve been fighting taking a nap every single day! But I power through – I started this post, answered a couple of emails, got a few cleaning projects done, and gave myself a few minutes of decompress time. I think that’s my favorite thing about Emmie going to school – I have the time to get work done in the morning so I can get at least a few minutes of “me time” in the afternoon!
3:30 – I looked at the monitor, only to realize Emmie wasn’t asleep. We’ve had a little bit of a problem with her fighting naps this week, so I gave her a few mints to see if she might fall asleep. Sure enough, she was out by 4:00.
6:00 – Emmie’s up! We have a little bit of water table time and she eats dinner.
7:15 – I give Emmie a bath. She absolutely loves her bath time these days – she’s such a water baby. They usually last at least 30 minutes.
7:45 – Noah’s home! (Right now, he works ten hour days Monday-Thursday.) He gets Emmie out of the bathtub and gets her into jammies while I walk Hardy.
8:15 – Emmie’s in bed, and Noah and I eat. It’s Taco Wednesday, a continuation of Taco Monday. We watch an episode of our current show, Orphan Black, while we eat.
9:30 – We both clean up the kitchen, put away toys, and head to bed.
