Let me start off by saying most days, unless I’m going to the gym, I don’t get my shoes on!
Being a stay at home mom is overly glamorized most of the time. It isn’t all bonbons and soap operas all day long.
My weekday starts just before 7am as Dawn is heading out the door to the bus stop. Thank goodness she can walk and the winter weather has been holding off. Although truth be told I think she hops a ride with the neighbors. Oh well.
I get out of bed and most mornings before I can walk out of the bathroom baby K has woken up and is fussy. Diaper change and breakfast. Then just over an hour to get Little Red out of bed, ready and off to the bus.
While Little Red is getting ready and eating breakfast I try to tackle the messes which seem to accumulate all on their own over night.
Someone has usually, trying to be helpful, given baby K a dry bowl of their cereal. Maybe it was from yesterday? I find it somewhere during the morning.
Within an hour of being awake my hot water for honey has been reheated a few times. I find a few minutes to have my morning hot honey water.
Most mornings it waits until after a workout at the gym. Ya know when Baby K is ready for a nap and won’t be put down…
Honey water and to do lists. Sometimes I have to do lists for my to do lists haha oh boy!
I have high hopes for my day and even get the dishes done before starting on some laundry.
The clean clothes make it to the bed before meltdowns begin.
Lots of snuggle time and some nursing until I can gently and quietly move away from him in whatever sleeping position he finds himself.
If I’m quick enough I can take a shower and change into normal clothes. Sometimes it is a choice between a shower or getting dinner started before kids start coming home.
Pack up the sleeping babe and off to the bus stop to pick up Thing 1 and Thing 2.
Ah the glamourous life of a stay at home mom. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
