I always like seeing how other people lay out their days. Some people make me feel lazy, and other people I envy for being able to sleep in and go at a more leisurely pace. This is what my current Monday-Friday looks like. (Well, add in dance one night a week for Zoe. That puts us getting home at 8pm, so no bath that nights and I take her for dinner out somewhere in between school and dance so she isn’t starving during class.)
4:00 am – Wake up – I am pretty good about not hitting snooze, since I wake up so much earlier than Chris, that wouldn’t be fair.
4:01am-4:15am – I usually take this time to wake up by playing on my phone for a few minutes, change into workout clothes, etc.
4:15am-4:45am – Work out
4:45am-6:15am – Take a shower, do my skin care and make-up, make coffee for Chris and I, pack my lunch, let Mac out, make my breakfast, pack Zoe’s car snacks and breakfast, fill my water cups for the day, eat breakfast, do my hair, get dressed.
6:15am-6:40am – Get Zoe up, pottied (we are potty training and doing really well!!!!!!), sunscreen, let Zoe pick out her shoes and clothes (this can seriously take 15 minutes, why God why?!?!?!) get her “friend” (stuffed animal) of the day to take to school, do her hair and get us out the door with all our stuff
6:40am-7:45am – Commute to daycare, drop Zoe off then continue on to work
7:45am -4:45pm – Work
4:45pm-6:30pm – Travel to get Zoe from daycare and travel home
6:30pm-7:00pm – Let Zoe play, usually outside. We take a family walk most nights, play with bubbles or sidewalk chalk, or Zoe drives her Minnie car or rides her bike. Other days when I can tell she worn out, we will watch a movie and color, read some books, play inside with toys, etc.
7:00pm-7:30pm – Zoe eats dinner
7:30pm – 8:00pm – Bath and bedtime for Zoe (Almost always runs well past 8pm, someone likes to get philosophical, needs to go potty three times, get water, needs 11 hugs and 14 kisses, etc. Toddlers, am I right????
The rest of the evening is me cooking dinner for Chris and I, and watching maybe one episode of something on TV while we eat before we pass out for the evening. Usually we are in bed by 9:30pm-10:00pm.
I feel like I am in a constant rushed state most days, constantly rushing Zoe and I along so we aren’t late in the mornings, or I am not late picking her up in the evenings. When we are home, we only get a small window to hang out before it is eat/bath/bed and I hate that. But I feel like if she doesn’t get to bed before 8:15ish, the next day is hard on all of us!!
I haven’t been around here much the last two weeks. It has just been insane! I was home for maybe three daytime hours this entire past weekend? I am behind on everything! So I will leave you with these….
