A Day in the Life: 4.6 Year & 14 Month Edition

7:19 - I wake up to the sound of giggling and Connor talking. Rob had gone in to get Addie up. Connor is making noise in his crib. I have been sick and just want to sleep.

7:29 - Connor seems pretty sure he wants to get up now which means I have to get up now (yesterday he slept until 9). Rob heads down to put waffles in the toaster for the kids. Addie is still getting dressed. I'm working on convincing myself that I don't have a choice about getting out of bed today. (Telling myself there is a nap in my future doesn't seem to help much as it turns out.)

7:38 - I get Connor up for which he immediately does the sign for more. Apparently he's hungry today. Addie is downstairs eating breakfast already and Connor happily joins her at the table.


7:48 - I'm dressed and sit down for a quick bowl of cereal. Connor is eating quickly this morning so I don't have long to get eat.

7:58 - Everyone is done with breakfast. Rob and Addie finish getting ready to go to work and school respectively.

8:03 - They walk out the door. Connor is screaming his head off for some unknown reason. Apparently he feels about as good as I do this morning. Only he conveys his feelings by screaming and snotting everywhere. It's going to be a long day.


8:05 - I take him upstairs to his room to rock. Since neither of us feel so hot today I doubt I will get anything done. If I can fit in my workout at some point then I will be happy. The bathrooms can be cleaned another day. (No sadness there.)


8:17 - Connor calmed down and decided he was done rocking. He wanted town so he could check out his books. At this point I don't care as long as he's not screaming anymore. He now keeps bringing me books to read. His favorite is Amazing Airplanes.



9:05 - We head downstairs so I can finally work out. Connor meanwhile eats a snack.


9:34 - Done with my workout. So a little playtime for Goon and lots of water and sitting for the mama. Maybe I shouldn't have done this with me being under the weather but I had come so far and didn't want to miss a day. I do feel better than yesterday but still nowhere close to 100%.


9:53 - Connor is getting mad at everything today. I decide it's time to pull out the big guns. AKA I turn on Mickey.


10:12 - Hanging out with my favorite little goon. He likes to sit on the couch with me. I am putting up my blog while Connor watches Mickey.


10:35 - Mickey is done and Connor is hopping around the couch and looking out the window. i turn on cooking for background noise.


11:15 - Time to go get Addie. The weather is nice today so we are walking. Some fresh air will do us good.

11:37 - Back home again. And immediately they start making a mess together. So yeah pretty typical.



12:09 - We head upstairs for lunch. They are having chicken nuggets, veggie straws, string cheese and oranges.


12:41 - Kids are done eating and off again. I'm still eating so they keep each other busy. Now is just keeping busy [and happy] until naptime. It's just one of those days [which is why we will be eating takeout tonight]. But at least Addie and Connor are getting along today.


1:00 - Time to get ready for nap time. I change Connor's diaper then let each pick out a book. The three of us read together before Addie heads to her room. I sing to Connor then put him down.


1:12 - Take a breath - I made it to nap time!

3:00 - Addie shows up in the living room. I told her green 3 on her (colorful) clock and right on time here she is.


3:17 - Connor is up and crying. Didn't wake up awesome but he's happily eating a snack. In fact Addie is having a snack too. Dinner is going to be later tonight since we have to wait for Rob to get off, go get food, then get home. Until then it's a whole lot of play time.


5:33 - Rob is home and now we are all heading out together for food.

6:04 - Back home and dinner. We are having KFC in the living room while we watch Powerless. This is what happens when Mama is sick. [Yes I know this is out of focus. I am having a bit of camera issues today.]


6:35 - Done with dinner. Pregame and some daddy playtime, including some hide and seek.


7:40 - Time to clean up. The kids have a way of making a huge mess without playing with a thing. It must be a talent.

7:53 - Rob handles bedtime tonight and gives me a little downtime not having to mess with them for the bedtime battle. (Also no pictures because of that and those camera issues.) Addie pretty much gets herself ready while Rob gets Connor ready. He reads to Connor while the slowest girl alive brushes her teeth then reads to her. And they both go down for what we hope will be another quiet night.

After they go to bed, Rob gathers trash and I watch the game and work on the blog. Then we have a little downtime before heading up to bed.
