Perhaps some back story would help…
7:30a- Fix Sam breakfast, change diapers, set Sophie up to play. Drink coffee.
8:30a- Sophie gets cranky & goes down for morning nap. This usually takes about 15 min to do & she’ll sleep for around an hour. During said nap I get Samantha & myself ready for the day. Bonus points for a quick shower.
10a- Sophie is up & it’s time to head out the door…usually it’s a playdate or gym class for Sam. Other days it’s the necessary errands…Target, grocery, mall…pack the diaper bag with necessities including snack & juice cup for Sam. Diaper changes too (I don’t think I need to tell you how stressful errands with 2 small children are do I?)
11:30a- Feed Sophie baby food, hopefully I remembered to pack it this time
12p – Feed Sam & myself
1p- Head home if not there already so Sam can nap (fingers crossed, she’ll nap about 3-4x per week)
1:30p – nurse Sophie, get her down for nap
2p- If Sophie has actually stayed asleep I’ll try and get some laundry done (or take a sneak at my blog) If Sam is not napping I’ll have to get her situated with an “activity.” (aka TV show)
2:30/3p Sophie is up, diaper changes all around
3p- 2nd cup of coffee, entertain both kids and try to stop checking the clock. This is by far the suckiest part of the day
4p- Hooray, it’s time for Oprah which means the countdown till Dad is done working officially begins!
4:30p- nurse Sophie
5p – start cooking dinner, stop halfway through to put Sophie in baby sling since she still needs an evening catnap. Finish cooking while wearing Sophie.
6:30p Watch kids while Dad cleans kitchen, feed Sophie dinner
7p Bathtime. Once Sophie gets older I suppose I’ll have a break here because Daddy does bathtime but for now I usually jump in the shower (because I probably didn’t get a chance to in the morning) with both kids & dad gets them out one at a time & puts them in pi’s
7:30p We all climb in bed, Sam watches Dora, Soph sits on my boob as I attempt to stuff her one last time in hopes of sleep & Daddy gets back on his laptop to finish working
8p – Daddy puts Sam to bed & I put Sophie down
8:30p – Daddy finishes working & I contemplate having marital relations, watching a DVR’d show, working on blog or going to sleep since the clock is now ticking until the kids wake up & it all starts over again
