A Day in the Life: 44 Month & 4 Month Edition

I decided after Connor was done that I wanted to do one of these every month. I'm sad that I didn't start doing these until after Addison was already 10 months and I don't remember the early months too well. So here we are again.

0601 // Alarm goes off. It's the alarm for us to get up and exercise although we don't always. We seem to have a consistency problem. This morning I don't even remember my alarm going off.

0728 // I roll over and check my phone to realize the morning is later than I thought it was. The hubs hops up to jump in the shower.

0741 // The hubs is out of the shower. I'm going to take a quick one but before I can even get up we hear Addie calling for daddy.

0752 // I get out of the shower and hurry to get dressed because now we can hear both kids over the monitor.



0804 // Everyone is dressed and its breakfast time. The hubs heads off to work. I'm starving because when I say everyone I don't mean me.



0821 // They are done with breakfast so we head downstairs for play time. I pick up the kitchen real quick and grab a blow of [stale] cereal.


0833 // Addie continues to play but Connor seems to be antsy today so we switch to tummy time to bit.


0841 // Connor seems really cranky so I take him upstairs to read and go down for an early nap. Meanwhile I promised Addie she could watch Looney Tunes while I take him upstairs and she holds me to that promise.



0850 // We finish reading and I lay him down. Addie continues to watch Looney Tunes and I get some odds and ends chores done: cleaning cat liter, gathering trash, unloading the dishwasher and such.

0925 // I settle on the couch with Addison who is still watching L.T. and decide work on my blog some. (I'm also catching up on some podcasts.)


0942 // Connor has decided to let this Wonder Week be in control today and doesn't want to nap longer than forty minutes when normally he takes a two hour morning nap. I haven't moved to get him yet since I'm hoping he'll go back to sleep. So far no dice.

0947 // I head upstairs to see if I can settle him without getting him up yet. All he seems to be doing though is making a ton of noise. Apparently he's discovered he can make weird sounds. Awesome...


1001 // Connor has settled and Addie's Looney Tunes is over. I tell her no more tech for a bit and tell her to play with toys. She then starts yelling "No play with toys!!" (It's already been a long day. Not a good one but this is life. Not everyday is great. There are days when Addie watches more TV than she should or plays with the iPad more than she should. I have days I end up in tears calling Rob just to have a moment of calm. Then there are days everything is good. Today unfortunately is the latter.)

1007 // She gives in and goes to her toys although she still looks mad.


1018 // We head outside for a bit while Connor sleeps so Addie can blow bubbles. Maybe the fresh air will zip my bad mood.


1040 // Back inside again. And of course a snack.


1104 // Connor is making noise again. I'm waiting to see if he is actually committing to waking up.

1116 // It seems that he really does want up after all. Usually I fed him when he gets up but it hasn't really been long enough and he's not crying for food so I let him hang out in the exersaucer for a bit until he lets me know he's hungry.


1135 // Addie decides she wants to play with Connor.


1144 // He decided he was hungry. Addie meanwhile took a bathroom break then started playing - mostly doing her hair.


1207 // Nail clipping and singing time. Personally I enjoyed the singing more than the nail clipping.



1220 // The hubs is home for lunch.

1229 // Lunch is made and time to eat. Well except for Addie who is running in circles.


1240 // Addie and the hubs play "the get you" game and I take Connor upstairs for a diaper change, to read, and to lay down for a nap.


1246 // He's down and I'm exhausted but there's still a kid awake. She has a bit longer before her quiet time still.

1300 // The hubs heads back to work. Addie still hasn't eaten but she knows quiet time is coming. And I know she will ask for food right after I tell her it's time for quiet time.

1316 // Given the option of quiet time or eating then quiet time, she decided she wanted to eat it. It wasn't a hard sale. She's finally eating lunch.

1347 // Addie finally done eating and ready for quiet time.


1356 // She's down too. I'm going to relax, eat some cookies, watch something, work on the blog. Normally it's something I would do downstairs but not today. Today I want to stretch out on the bed.


1437 // Connor is awake but really shouldn't be. That dang Wonder Week is kicking my butt today.

1447 // I go to his room to try and calm him down.

1521 // He calmed himself but I saw in his room awhile playing a game on my phone making sure he was really back to sleep. I think I need a nap now.

1627 // Connor is awake and I'm sad because I'm still tired and wanting some more alone time but he's done so there's that.


1633 // Dinner bottle time. Addie is still snoozing.

1708 // I start the oven for dinner. Connor plays on his mat and Addie is still asleep. Honestly I know I should wake her up but I really don't want to so I don't yet. I'm going to pay for that tonight at bedtime.


1726 // Dinner went into the oven then I went up to wake up Addie. She didn't really budge but at least she's awake now.

1732 // The hubs is home. He immediately takes Connor up for his evening nap and says something to a still lazy Addie while I babysit dinner.


1740 // Addie is up and Connor is mad about a nap. Dinner is ready.


1751 // Connor is down.

1758 // Done with dinner except Addie who drug her feet even getting to the table.


1800 // We turn on the Royals game and chill. Addie runs around a bit. The hubs and I are busy looking up traveling stuff on TV - granted we aren't going on this particular trip for another five years but it's never too early....

1838 // Connor is awake. Addie is playing with the iPad while the hubs plays with Connor.


1940 // Bedtime. Addie decided that she wanted the hubs to do bedtime which meant I got the little one. He's easy. I changed him into the pajamas, put a little lotion on his cheeks, bottle, a book, a song then down he goes. He then went right down. The hubs meanwhile was helping Addison change into her pajamas, brush her teeth, then they read, he sings and she goes down. Surprisingly she was a harder sell on bedtime than he was.

2000 // But they were settled soon enough.

The rest of the evening we just relaxed. We were really lazy and hung out in our bedroom. I finished watching the game then switched to Turner Classic Movie channel and messed around on the iPad. The hubs spent the evening program. Honestly I don't even remember what time I finally turned off my light - around 11 maybe. Then to bed and repeat the next day.
