Madeline and I have been pretty busy the past two days. Here's an example of what each day is like for us. Granted, it changes...and Tuesdays are a bit different because of the time her class falls.
6:30am I wake up, get myself mildly dressed, clean up a bit, get Madeline's breakfast ready to go
7am Get Madeline out of crib, change clothes/diaper... play for a few minutes
7:10am Breakfast Time, unload the dishwasher while Madeline eats and scarf down breakfast quickly
hiding so she doesn't want to eat mine.
7:30-9:15am Playtime. aka...either chase Madeline around the house or carry her around
9:15-9:30am Snack Time
9:30-11am Nap #1 of the day. I get myself dressed for real, do laundry, clean floors, prep Madeline's lunch etc. I'll usually get around 20 minutes of actual downtime.
10:45am Get Madeline up (I have to wake her on Mommy and Me days to get her to class on time)
10:45-11:05 Lunch for both of us
11:15-Noon Mommy and Me
Noon-12:45pm Head over to TJMaxx (next door)
1pm: Playtime at Home
1:30pm: Snack Time
1:45pm-3:30pm: Naptime (It's typically 2:15-3:30pm, but she was a cranky pants today :) Prep Dinner and relax a bit
3:30pm Snack Time and Play Time
4:15pm: I take a bath while she throws her blocks in the tub with me and laughs hysterically.
We play until Tommy gets off work or is on his way home. He works from home on Tuesdays.
5pm I cook dinner while Tommy plays with Madeline
5:30-6pm Dinner Time
6pm I clean the house, kitchen, feed Sophie, laundry, get Madeline ready for bed, and anything I forgot to do. Tommy plays with Madeline upstairs
6:20pm Family Playtime
6:35-7pm Bedtime routine including brushing teeth, bath, pjs, books...you get the picture
7pm-8:30 RELAXATION TIME
8:30pm I go to bed, however, I don't fall asleep until around midnight
We have a busy week of errands this week. I always try to do those in between naps since traffic can get backed up during rush hour. And, I try my best to give Madeline playtime in between. too.
Her molars are just about to pop through. I feel bad for her....it looks very painful. I'm giving Advil when needed and Hyland's Teething Tabs. So, during the day, she's been pretty cranky this week.
She's also starting saying "mail." She loves to check the mail and play with my catalogs and junk mail. And she's into holes. Like ear canals, nostrils, anything. And licking. She's been a big licker this week. She's always a big kisser...which is so sweet.
Okay, I'm getting drowsy and I'm tired. I'm not done entirely with this post, but I'll just have to update another time. I'm pooped. Oh, and I'm too lazy to edit the photos above. You get the idea :)
