recently my cousin asked to know what a day in the life of me looks like. i’m hoping to record this as accurate as possible….but it’s been a few days since the day i planned to write this so we’ll see. good thing i took pictures to try to remind me.
a day of staying at home and no errands looks roughly like this.
7 am: amelia wakes up – anywhere between 6-7 is her wake time
7-9 am: nurse – breakfast and play (daddy usually takes her after i nurse so i can groggily wake up and fix breakfast)
9: went down for nap – anywhere between 9-10 – this is when i shower, do dishes, other chores or just misc things i want to get done
10:30: amelia wakes – usually naps for about 1-1.5 hrs. then we figure out what to wear
and take a happy picture (i showered but no time to do hair)
then someone decided to be cranky
do more chores – laundry was on the schedule today, folding and hanging, pictured below in the sakura bloom sling as we hang clothes
and then the dishes were calling
best invention. ever.
11:30 – time for amelia’s lunch (and for me to sit and relax)
then lunch for me and some puree for A
we decide today we need to hang outside for a bit and watch molly chase her ball. amelia loves her doggy…especially when she runs fast.
1:20 – down for her nap – finish doing my hair and other misc chores
2:30 – wakes up – she definitely takes after me when waking up…not too happy at first. we nurse and then play some more. sometimes while i clean and organize her room. sometimes daddy takes her for a little if he’s done with work.
6 pm – our evening stroll
6:30 – start preparing room for bed, draw shades and lay out pj’s and diaper, dim lights and nurse. then put pj’s on and overnight diaper and put into crib.
7:00 – usually asleep
so there you have it. a rough outline of a day at home. we didn’t have any errands to run and had plenty of chores to do at home. i’ll write another post soon about a busy day or just one that we do more outside of the house. i try to only go out after her morning nap. if she misses that she tends to get overtired and it’s even harder to get her to nap after.
