Daily Grind

Thursday, April 25, 2013

Believe it or not I often have people ask me what I do all day. (Um, take care of a baby?!) While I find this mildly annoying humorous I decided to document the happenings of my daily life. I could have just written 6:30 am to 6:30 pm : Raise a Child. But I thought it would be a bit more interesting if I added a few more details...

6:30 am wake up, 7 am go for a jog and this happens...

8 am eat breakfast

greek yogurt, whole milk and fruit for B

oatmeal with brown sugar for me every day

8:30 am B plays

while I clean up and do dishes/laundry/feed dog etc.

9 am i read a few books to B then she gets cranky

so i change her diaper and put her down for a nap (clearly she LOVES this!)

we snuggle before nap time ( i LOVE this)

while she naps i enjoy coffee and quiet time
then i quickly get ready for the day
10 am she's up!
10 am i pick out her outfit

11 am we meet friends at the park and run errands. at 12 we eat lunch.

at 1 we have more snuggles before nap time

naptime allows me to continue preparing items for the baby consignment sale at church
naptime also allows me to write thank you's to some friends
4pm she's up and i drop her off at Lala's so I can drop off CAbi clothes

6pm babysitter comes over and we go to sushi for an early bday dinner
Whew! I'm tired just re-reading it all! Her afternoon nap is truly a blessing from God. Lately it's been 3 hours long...hallelujah! Clearly not every day is like this but it's pretty close to it! Nap time is sometimes used to do laundry, pay bills, clean up etc. On a rare occasion I'll use it to do something fun like scrap book, read, or take a nap. Typically I don't blog until she is in bed at 7. Then I shower and it's off to bed I go! I wouldn't trade any part of it for the world (ok, maybe those poopy diapers...).


  1. I also get that question, "but what do you do all day?". I too find it a little annoying. The days go by quickly and with playing, eating, naps, and never knowing how quickly their moods will change every day is filled. I guess some people might find staying home boring, but I LOVE it!

  2. When did she start taking 3 hour naps? I would LOVE that!

  3. Staying home with baby is a full time job!! My hat is off to you my friend!! :)

  4. I used to say that i watched soap operas and ate Bon Bons. So rude! I don't even know what a Bon Bon is.

  5. Oh my word, I get this all the time. I always just say 'why don't you try for a day and let me know?' funny how nobody takes me up on it!


I love reading what you have to say! Leave a comment...it makes my day!
