A Day in the Life: 4.5 Year & 13 Month Edition

7:01 - Alarm goes off, but I don't exactly hop out of bed (not that I'm doing a lot of hopping these days).

7:14 - Both kids are still sleeping away but Addie has school so the hubs heads to get her up. I hope Connor stays down a bit longer.

7:19 - The hubs and Addie comes in with some clothes for her to get dressed before breakfast.

7:23 - Addie is dressed and the two of them head downstairs for breakfast. We are not the most motivated in the morning but she seems to be a moving at a pretty good pace this morning compared to most.

7:35 - I get up and get dressed only to discover I slept wrong or something because I'm having trouble putting weight on my leg. Pain in a different part of my knee but I'm getting around (by the time I get downstairs Addie is done eating so no picture).

The hubs takes a shower while I hang out with Addie. I put up my blog and we talk about the weather while we wait.

8:11 - The hubs and Addie head out for work and school respectively.


8:23 - I can hear Connor up there so it seems he's ready to get up. I'm not sure I'm ready with my leg still bothering me. But ready or not, Connor's awake.


8:47 - I change his diaper and Connor messes around his room for awhile before he finally decides he's ready for breakfast.


9:04 - He's done eating so we head upstairs to get dressed.


9:10 - We head to the grocery store.



10:00 - Back from the grocery store and Connor wants to help.


10:19 - We head downstairs for some playtime. We have time to kill before we need to go pick up Addie from school. We also end up upstairs on the bedroom floor after awhile due to Connor being antsy. I put the kids' clothes away while Connor plays and cries at me.


11:15 - Time to pick up Addie.



11:37 - Home again. Both kids are in pretty good moods which is a nice change and it gives me a few minutes to put their lunches together in peace without a ton of whiny.

11:51 - Lunch time! Connor has chicken nuggets, cheese, a mandarin oranges. Addie requested a peanut butter and jelly sandwich with string cheese. I heated up a Lean Cuisine meal.



11:48 - The kids are still eating and I get to work on the Zucchini Muffins they are going to have for breakfast this week.


12:08 - The kids are done eating and down playing. Mostly chasing each other around. I'm finishing up the muffins and cleaning up the kitchen.


12:44 - We head upstairs for nap time. Usually we go upstairs closer to one but to be perfectly honest I had no idea what time it actually was. Addie goes potty while I change Connor's diaper and read to him. He went down quickly and easily.


12:48 - Time to get Addie down for quiet time which basically means reading. (And yes I know the picture is blurry but the lighting wasn't great so this was the best we got. Man that girl looks like me.)


12:58 - Both kids are in their rooms now so I head downstairs to have my own quiet time. I do a little Our Beautiful Mess Shop stuff and work on my blog, plus some good old fashion relaxing.

2:35 - Connor is awake and crying. It's too early and he sounds tired so I'm going to give him a few minutes to quiet down on his own.

2:41 - Apparently he didn't calm down so now I'm rocking him. A typical day, naptime definitely doesn't go like this.

2:58 - I tried putting him back in his crib. It lasted two minutes....

Addie's awake now and eating a muffin.


3:03 -  Before we have the chance to get him he quiets again. There's a lot of back and forth and he's not committed to anything. All I know is that he's tired (and I'm tired of walking stairs.)

3:09 - Connor is officially up and eating a snack. How come he always sleeps bad on A Day in the Life days?


3:20 - Addie asked for some iPad time and since she took a little nap (had a good quiet time) and has done a good job listening today so I let her play for a bit. Connor tries to help.


I'm just trying to pass the time until the hubs gets home. Connor is mostly just crawling around, getting into trouble and playing.

4:30 - My alarm goes off to start dinner. I preheat the oven and get the chicken ready to go in. Then we head back downstairs for a little longer until I have to finish dinner.

4:48 - Connor has other ideas about staying downstairs so back to the main floor we go.


5:02 - I finish up the last leg of dinner. Tonight is very little work and a decent amount of oven time. Plus very little dishes so even better.


5:32 - The hubs is home.


5:40 - Dinner time. (Chicken with Mushroom and Peas)


6:01 - We are done with dinner and we head downstairs for the kids to flock to the hubs.


7:06 - I was avoiding but finally got up to do PT for the evening. The rest of the family played.


7:20 - Started cleaning up the very messy living room.


7:33 - Time to head upstairs and start getting ready for bed. (The kids, not us although it is tempting.)





7:51 - Connor is down. Addie is still moving slowly getting ready for bed.





8:06 - Addie is down.

Well, kind of...for one reason or another she kept getting up until almost 9:30. That girl has entered the stalling to go to sleep portion of her life. I'm not liking it.

But otherwise we headed upstairs to the bedroom after they were down. Rob had to work on some Marine stuff while I showered then worked on my blog and did some bullet journaling. Then we went to bed some hours later.

The End.
