It’s Just an Average Day…

Found this from months ago- a detailed record of a day in the life of me, potty training and nursing two children:

  • 5:30 AM – Wake up to sound of baby kicking in swing.  Feed sweet baby his breakfast.
  • 6:00 AM- Realize there’s no reason to attempt going back to sleep.
  • 6:01 AM-  Attempt to go back to sleep.
  • 6:15 AM-  Realize there really was no reason to attempt going back to sleep.
  •                     Read Bible
  • 6:45 AM- Take Shower.  Wonder if there’s any reason to shave my legs.
  • 6:55 AM- Turn faucet off.  Hear child screaming.  Nope, no reason to shave legs.
  • 7:00 AM Husband’s alarm goes off.
  • 7:15 AM   Wake husband up.  Get kids dressed.  Feed DGA his morning snack.
  • 7:30 AM  Congratulate Bug for peeing in potty.
  • 7:35 AM  Calm tears of not getting a candy/donut/malibu beach house for peeing in potty.
  • 7:40 AM  Re-change diaper because DGA pooped again.
  • 7:50 AM  Out the door or you’re late.
  • 8:00 AM Drop off the husband at work.  Kiss. Hug. Bye Bye.
  • 8:05 AM Avoid Pal’s tea and ham biscuits beckoning call.
  • 8:15 AM  Back home
  • 8:45 AM  Breakfast
  • 9:00 AM  Put on the apron to convince kids I’m serious about cleaning today.
  • 9:15  AM These dishes are getting done come hell or high water.
  • 9:20 AM  Bug wants to help with the dishes.  Take extra time to show her how to sort the silverware drawer.  Remind myself this will pay off one day when she can do the whole load by herself, and I can make it her chore.
  • 9:30 AM  Potty attempt.
  • 9:35 AM Fill up sink with hot water.
  • 9:36 AM DGA crying for second breakfast.
  • 9:37 AM Prop nursing child up on leg while quickly swatting the faucet because water is still running.
  • 9:45 AM Potty attempt again. Success!
  • 9:50 AM Look at sink full of warm water.  Consider washing them.  Realize I have to pee myself.
  • 10:00 AM Random nonsense interruptions- playdough.
  • 10:30 AM Actually get around to washing dishes with cold water in sink.
  • 11:00 Upstairs.  Change diaper.  Playtime.
  • 11:30 Realize Bug smells like pee.  Downstairs, make her take a bath.
  • 11:45  DGA crying.  Hungry again??
  • 11:50  DGA asleep.
  • 11:55  Nope, he’s awake.
  • 12:00 Can’t keep track of it anymore and give up.
