Life will be changing soon! My baby girl is somehow old enough to go to Kindergarten. I am working on FINALLY conquering my fear of driving. After that, I'm hoping I will be able to either get a job or go back to college. I am so excited for the future, but at the same time, I feel sad that I won't get to just spend all day with my girls. No matter how much I can't wait to branch out and live more of my own life, it's just so bittersweet. I want to soak up all these mundane moments of playing, snuggling, and even whining, because they are just so precious. Being a stay at home mom has been the most amazing experience. It's been a huge challenge at times, but I wouldn't trade it for the world.
I wanted to record one of last days of life the way it is now, before all these big changes start happening. So, here it is. :)
4ish - Molly wakes me up to go outside. (I forgot to let her out before bed, whoops!) I go back to sleep.
5ish - Bryn wakes up, I nurse her for a few minutes then we both go back to sleep. (Both kids slept through the night until now, which is awesome!)
6ish - Steven gets up, gets ready for work, and leaves without waking anyone up. This earns him major husband points, lol!
7:30 - The kiddos wake up. I make them breakfast, then tend to the dogs.
8 - I turn tv on for the kids and go on the computer while I eat my breakfast. :)
8:30 - I do some chores. The kids want to help out for a bit, then they go play in the living room.
9:30 - We read, then play, then have a snack.
10 - I do some chores while the kids play in the living room.
10:30 - I discover that Molly had an accident, so I clean that up. The kids play dress up in their room.
11 - I set Kaylee up to play on Disney Jr. and go put Bryn down for her nap.
11:30 - Kay and I eat lunch.
11:45 - Kay does some addition problems. She insists on setting up a homework area in the corner, lol.
12:15 - Kaylee draws while I do some chores. She helps me with a few of them.
12:30 - She wants to go play by herself so I watch some tv.
1 - Bryn wakes up, I nurse her and keep watching tv.
1:30 - We have a snack, then play in the living room. Then I go tidy up a bit while they keep playing.
2:30 - We snuggle up and watch Care Bears. (We had a hitting incident so I wanted to get them in a more caring mood, lol.)
3:15 - The kids are getting hyper so we eat a snack and get ready to go play outside.
4 - We're finally all ready to go. We go for a walk, then the kids play in the yard while I mow the lawn (with the manual mower).
5:20 - We come in and I put the tv on for the kids while I make dinner and feed the dogs.
5:40 - Steven gets home and we all eat dinner. :)
6:20 - Steven gives the kids a bath while I clean up the kitchen.
6:50 - I get the kids out of the bath and we all just relax in the living room for a bit.
7:20 - I brush the kids teeth and Steven reads them bedtime stories. Then I go up and say prayers then sing lullabies. Brynna is out like a light, and Kaylee soon follows.
8:20 - I check my email and Facebook, then practice ASL. Steven is playing a video game.
9:20 - Bryn wakes up. I nurse her for a few minutes then put her back to bed.
9:40 - Steven and I watch some tv together. :)
10:40 - Time for bed. It was a great day!
