I work three days a week, and am home with the kids two days a week. Thursday I took notes and chronicled a day in my life as a part time working momma. It's pretty detailed, but I think it will be fun to look back on and see how quickly life changes.
I am working on a separate post for a day in my life as a part time SAHM. Hopefully I will get it done this weekend.
**Disclaimer: E spent the night with Nanny and Papa Wednesday so her dramatic little self is missing from our Thursday morning routine. She is SOOOO not a morning person.
1:57am - My eyes first see Thursday morning when the tyrant tater wakes just before 2am. I change his diaper, give him about three ounces of milk, and tuck him back in. I go back to bed and fall right to sleep.
7:00pm - The tyrant tater starts to stir around so I change his diaper then tuck him back in.
7:15am - Brent comes home from work to take M to school. After they leave I load the dishwasher, do a quick pickup in the living room, and start some laundry. Since I'm feeling generous this morning, I straighten the bed up (fluff the pillows, turn back the covers, etc) so it will be extra nice and comfy for B to hop into later. I only do this once in awhile not everyday.
|My momma's a nut bag!|
6:00pm - Pick Sparky up from camp.
6:10pm - Home! B has already picked the tyrant tater up and E has just been dropped off from her overnight trip. Makes me happy to see their sweet faces.
7:25pm - R baths in the sink while I do the dinner dishes. He is getting a little big for the sink, but he is scared of the big bath tub. For now we are just sticking with what we know works. B and E play catch in the living room and M plays a game on the computer.
9:15pm - E and I snuggle up on her bed. She plays on the ipad while I finish a blog post from the weekend. I check facebook and twitter so I can be sure I am up to date on all the latest news from the social media front.
11:00pm - Bed. Me, E, and Sparky all head to my room and call it a night. Zzzzzz.
