A Day in the Life: 6.6 Year, 3.2 Year & 4 Month Edition

5:29 -- My alarm goes off. Every day I think how stupid early it is but yet every day I get up. I gotta get my sweat on.

6:14 -- Done. As I cool down before my shower, I write a recap in my personal fitness journal I keep. I think it's fun to go back and see how much things have changed and how strong I have become or whatever. I just think it's interesting. Sometimes I use it to remember how a workout went before I decide to go back to it.

6:22 -- I head upstairs for a shower.

6:40 -- I'm out of the shower and ready for the ready. I have some time before I have to get the kids up so I get back into bed to look at my phone then read a little.


7:00 -- Time to get the kids up and moving. To be perfectly honest, having all three kids all day sounds exhausting this summer but I look forward to when I don't have to get up to exercise so early and I don't have to wake the kids up in the morning.

Addison is already up and got herself dressed - this is rare. Then I go for Connor who is very sluggish getting out of bed. I wait for as long as I can to get Emma up.

7:13 -- We head downstairs for breakfast. The kids have been having scrambled eggs, color their choice (I just use food coloring to make it whatever color they want). They also have Egg pancakes that they love, a yogurt.


7:29 -- Emma's finally awake. I finish making Addison's lunch so Rob goes up to get her diaper changed and dressed for the day.

7:33 -- I start feeding her so Rob can go shower.


7:51 -- She's done eating which is good because we have to finish getting ready for school.

7:57 -- Somehow I got all three kids dressed and fed and out the door to walk to school, so off we go.


8:20 -- I get Emma and Connor into the car so we can run an errand.


8:57 -- We are home again and now I'm against the clock. Emma started to fall asleep in her car seat but I wanted to get her down in her room so I raced to get her upstairs as soon as we walked in the door. Connor went back to the breakfast I saved in the fridge for him.

9:02 -- She put herself to sleep and it's amazing! We haven't started cry it out but I sit with her still. She has started rejecting the pacifier (yay!) for her hand which is great self soothing!


9:12 -- I promised Connor some train track building.


9:47 -- Emma is awake. She napped about 45 minutes so not as long as I'd like but maybe she'll take a longer one later.

Emma hangs out on her play mat while Connor and I argue about a banana. He then goes back to playing cars and trains.

10:18 -- Paw Patrol


10:33 -- Emma decided she was hungry so she's eating a 6 ounce bottle.

10:53 -- Connor told me he was hungry so we start making lunch. He has the same thing just about every day of chicken nuggets, cheese and chips.


11:16 -- I sit down to eat while Emma plays on her mat.

11:27 -- I take Emma up for a dry outfit and clean diaper. Then I read to her, sing then put her down for a nap.


11:40 -- And she's down. Time to get the other one upstairs to his room. That will be more of a fight for sure.


11:46 -- As I predicted it's a fight. He's cranky and tired but doesn't want to admit it.

11:58 -- And now he's down in his room too.


I take this time to eat a cookie and figure out what's next. I think I need to get some work done. I have new releases coming out this week but I already need to be working on releases for next month so that's where I start.


2:52 -- I can hear Emma over the monitor starting to stir. Just as well I have to get her up soon anyway to get Addison and she took an awesome nap.


3:15 -- I get an unexpected call from the school nurse that Addison is there wheezing. We talk for a few minutes about Addison, but since it's the end of the day I'm going to pick up like normal. I get a call back that the nurse is concerned about her and thinks we should have her checked out so I'll just pick her up from the nurse's office.

3:20 -- I get Connor up and we head off quickly to get Addison. While we are walking I call Rob to talk to him about what he thinks then call the doctor's office. Our regular doctor isn't in on Tuesdays but I'm hoping they can squeeze us in with someone. He tells me that they will get us in at 3:40 so we book it to get to school and get home to get to the doctor.

3:42 -- We get to the doctor just a couple minutes late and get her right in.


She was wheezing some and her breaths were definitely labored but it wasn't awful by the time we get to the doctor. We talk about what's going on - she often has breathing problems when she's sick but this time we think allergies are to blame. So we get her some allergy medicine with a focus on asthma  symptoms and another inhaler. She's fine by the way. We are just trying to keep it under control and over this quickly.

4:34 -- We are home again. I give Addison first choice on what to watch and just let the kids chill while I fill in Rob and my mom about Addison.

4:58 -- Time to get Emma down for her evening nap. This is the most dreaded nap and she definitely fought a lot harder.

5:13 -- It was a fight for sure but she's down.

5:18 -- I start dinner.


5:44 -- Emma woke up screaming. Not long enough but she's not going back to sleep so I get her and put her in the high chair next to me while I finish up making dinner.


6:03 -- Dinner is ready and Emma is now screaming in her high chair. I make my plate then feed her while I eat.


6:10 -- Rob's home.

6:35 -- We are all done eating and just relaxing.


7:39 -- We head upstairs to get ready for bed.




8:25 -- All kids are in pajamas, teeth brushed, read and sang to. I get Connor down then Addison a few minutes later. Meanwhile Rob take Emma to her room.

8:40 -- Emma is down for the night too.

I do a little more cleaning up then finish this very blog post. We head upstairs and just relax while watching the game the rest of the evening before exhaustion takes over. We do have to do this all over again tomorrow.
