A Day in the Life: 4 Year & 8 Month Edition

07:01 │ My alarm goes off. I used to workout at 5:45 every morning but since my knee injury, things have changed. So I just get up and shower instead.

07:20 │ I'm running a little late today. So I hurry to get the kids up. Connor is already awake but I have to wake up Addison. I bring them both into my room to get them dressed while the hubs showers. On this morning - I guess she must since we are running behind - Addison refuses to get dressed on her own but wants me to do it even though I'm dressing Connor. She even refuses the hubs's help, so I hurry to finish Connor then help Addison.

07:32 │ We head down for breakfast. I make Addie's waffle and yogurt then get Connor's 8 ounce bottle and cereal together. Then finally I can get myself a bowl of cereal. By this point, the hubs is dressed and ready to go, getting his lunch ready for the day.


08:06 │ We just continue to run behind today. The hubs takes Addie to school on his way to work. I'm not moving so well with my knee and hate driving to drop her off, so since it's on his way he takes her.


08:10 │ Connor plays on the floor and I do some exercises. I found a 21 Day Arm Sculpting Challenge and a 30 Day Flat Abs Challenge. I wanted to keep going but do nothing that involved my legs at all. (I'll have a post soon about all this!)


08:30 │ Now playtime until naptime.


09:09 │ Naptime. Connor and I head upstairs to read and sing before he goes down for a quick morning nap.


09:18 │ Connor is down, so I put my knee up and settle in to get some work done on both my shop and my blog. Plus a little pointless internet surfing.


10:50 │ Connor is awake so quiet time is over. Playtime until time to pick up sis.


11:20 │ Time to get Addie. Knee injury means we drive, which is a bummer since it's so nice out!



11:38 │ Home again for the great lunch debate. Connor sits on the floor with the toys while Addie and I negotiate if she can watch anything. I say one Mickey and she says three - I think I already know who's going to win this one.


11:42 │ I let them watch one Mickey before lunch.

11:54 │ Connor decided he didn't care about Mickey and wanted food more. I take him to the kitchen for his purees while Addie finishes her show.



12:11 │ Addie finishes her show and comes upstairs to have lunch. I also sneak in a little food while I can. Connor meanwhile plays in his highchair.


12:19 │ Addie continues eating, Connor continues playing, and I do the dishes. Always the dishes - endless dishes.

12:38 │ We have a little pre-nap play time and reading.



01:01 │ Time for Connor's 6 ounce bottle followed by some reading and his song then he goes down for a nap.


01:17 │ Connor is down, so I go next door to read to Addie before her quiet time.


01:24 │ Addie is down in her room. My knee huts a lot so I'm sitting down with my knee up, a movie and kettle corn.


02:34 │ Connor's awake, so so am I - my nap definitely wasn't long enough.

03:15 │ Addie's finally awake too.


03:35 │ Addie is having some iPad time and Connor is having some antsy time. He doesn't want to sit still.


04:07 │ Connor seems super antsy and hungry today so I take him up a little earlier than normal for his dinner. He eats some purees then a 6 ounce bottle.


04:27 │ We hang out in my bed.


04:46 │ Connor is down for a quick evening nap.

05:41 │ The hubs is home and Connor is awake - what great timing! (Also my battery on my camera died so the lacking pictures and poor quality is thanks to that and using my phone instead!)


05:49 │ I hobble downstairs to make dinner.

06:12 │ Time for dinner - spaghetti carbonara


06:26 │ Done with dinner, except Addie who is dragging her feet. The hubs does the dishes and I put my knee up again.

06:47 │ Still with the knee up, superman entertains the kiddos


07:38 │ Time to start getting ready for bed. Again superman to the rescue and he does both bedtimes. Addie goes to sit on the toilet while the hubs feeds Connor his 8 ounce bottle. He reads to Connor and gets him down. Then finishes helping Addie get ready for bed, including brushing teeth and reading.

08:12 │ Both kids are down.

I then ice my knee and put it up in the bedroom watching the World Series while the hubs goes downstairs to play video games. Then at 10:30 he comes back upstairs and it's sleepy time!
