I’m not sure why but I love to read these types of posts. So here is our Wednesday. It was a pretty typical one for us.
2:30 AM: Hear Tucker on the monitor. Go in and feed him. Put him back to sleep. I go back to sleep by 2:45 AM
7 AM: Tucker slept that whole time! Go in and feed him. Put him on the bed between Aaron and I and we lay there until about 7:30.
7:50 AM: Wake Sam up and get him dressed. Change Tucker. Aaron gets ready for work.
8:10 AM: Aaron leaves for work. I make Sam waffles and kiwi for breakfast and he watches Curious George while I get Tucker and I ready.
8:30-8:45 AM: keep trying to get Sam to eat some of his breakfast. Gave him a piece of toast. He threw it on the floor. Oh well. Guess he’s not hungry. Run out and start the car and throw our bags in.
8:50 AM: Get our coats on and out the door to take Sam to mother’s day out.
9 AM: Drop Sam off and head home with Tucker crying. He falls asleep on the 5 minute drive home… I bring him inside, swaddle him and put him back to sleep upstairs.
9:15 AM: Shake my head at the huge mess our house is and have coffee and play around with social media.
9:30 AM: Eat Sam’s leftover breakfast, realize I left wet clothes in the washer from a couple of days ago so I start it again, load dishwasher, scrub sweet potato off the floor, clean up the toys, make beds.
10:30 AM: Check flights online for our trip to Florida next month. Call mom. Play around on the internet.
11 AM: Brush my hair, put contacts in.
11:10 AM: Type out this post up to here.
11:20 AM: Wake Tucker up so I have time to feed and change him before we have to leave to pick up Sam at 11:45. Have a selfie photo shoot with Tucker because we have a few minutes before we have to leave to get Sam.
12 PM: Pick up Sam and drive home. Frantically eat a banana with peanut butter because I am starving. Tucker accidentally gets a taste. Woops. Baby’s first taste of solids. He liked it. He was so mad that I wouldn’t give him more.
12:10 PM: sit on the couch while Sam tells me about what he did this morning and eats some Skittles from one of his Valentines.
12:20 PM: Aaron gets home for lunch. He makes scrambled eggs with chicken sausage and makes extra for Sam. Sam spits out chicken sausage on the floor. He eats a banana eventually. We all sit at the table and talk and eat then I feed Tucker and change him.
12:50 PM: Aaron heads back to work. The rest of us go upstairs. Tucker lies on the bed while Sam uses the potty forever while I tell him a really terrible made up story. Then he tells me a story then we read a Dora book twice. I change him into pajamas and he goes into the crib for a nap by 1:30 PM.
1:30 PM: Bounce Tucker to sleep for his second nap of the day.
1:35 PM: I eat a baked sweet potato and kiwi that Sam didn’t eat at lunch.
1:40 PM: Update this post with the last couple of hours and relax.
2:05 PM: Tucker wakes up…. try to get him to go back to sleep and fail.
2:30 PM: Call my mom to discuss flights again. Tucker is grumpy and rubbing his eyes so I try to get him back to sleep. Didn’t work!
3 PM: Hang out on the bed with Tucker and update this post. Think about cooking something for dinner…
3:15 PM: Tucker is still grumpy so I put him in the Moby and we cook dinner together. I made split pea soup with bacon. It turned out to be a good recipe.
3:45 PM: Sam wakes up. We all come downstairs, finish cooking the soup and try to clean up a bit. We wander the house until Aaron gets home at 5:30.
5:30 PM: Aaron gets home. I hand off Tucker and eat a bowl of soup. Then I change and pump while Aaron puts Tucker down for a nap.
6 PM: I leave the kids with Aaron and head to the gym. Stopped to get gas on the way and was about 5 minutes late for my 6:30 class.
7:30 PM: Super Circuit is over. I head home and stop at the library drop box to return some books. There is one book past due and of course I couldn’t find it today.
8 PM: Get home, feed Tucker. Aaron already gave Tucker a bath so we get Sam ready for bed and he’s in the crib by about 8:45 after much procrastinating. Tucker fights sleep too but he’s finally out by about 9:30.
9:45 PM: Sam is asking for socks. “Hey Mom Hey Dad, I want some socks.” We put socks on him and I think he’s finally going to bed.
9:50 PM: Sit on the couch and book flights to Florida for early March then update this post.
10:05 PM: Head upstairs to bed!
