Home » day in the life » Wednesday


I read quite a few blogs.  A lot of them post “day in the life” posts every once in a while and I always like them.  So I kept track of most of our day today to thrill you with the excitement of it!

Here we go.

7:10 AM – Sam wakes up and comes into our room.  I pretend he’s not there until about 7:20.

7:20 AM – I get out of bed, make coffee.  Sam and I go into the living room while Aaron gets ready for work.

7:30 AM – Aaron leaves for work.  I drink coffee while Sam watches “Sid the Science Kid” on his Kindle.


7:40 AM – I hear Tucker waking but leave him in the crib while I drink coffee and think about what to do today.  (we have nothing scheduled wednesdays)

8 AM – Get Tucker out of the crib.  Change his diaper and get him some milk.  Make the boys French toast for breakfast, unload the dishwasher.  Strap Tucker into the high chair and leave the boys to eat while I get dressed and gather our stuff for the day.  (decided to go on the Hike it Baby hike in Frick Park)

8:30 AM – Clean up breakfast.  Eat my own breakfast.  Get the kids dressed and ready.  Play a while. Make beds.

9:40 AM – Leave for Frick Park.  Hike (used loosely) for about an hour then go to the playground for a while.  Enjoy being outside and feeling warm for the first time in months.


12 PM – Drive home.  Try to feed Tucker lunch but he won’t eat anything.  (he had a bunch of snacks at the park)

12:15 PM – Put Tucker down for a nap.  That’s really early for him but he’s still recovering from his sickness.

12:15-1:15PM – Institute quiet time for Sam and me.  I waste time on the internet, Sam watches more Sid the Science Kid

1:15 PM – Sam and I go outside with the monitor while Tucker continues to nap.  He rides his bike around, digs in the dirt, plays with an umbrella.  I clean all the junk out of my car then sit on the porch while Sam plays.imag9656_25281849289_oimag9663_25354267550_o

2:30 PM – come inside.  Tucker is still napping.  Sam plays with some legos then eats bread with butter which is his favorite thing to eat.  Peanut butter and jelly is a close second.  I make a couple phone calls about moving and fold some laundry.  Sam does some painting.


4 PM – Tucker is up!  Lonnnng nap for him.  I get him out of the crib.  He eats a banana and I start to get us ready to drive to the South Hills.  We slowly get ready and then leave at 5.

5 PM – Drive to the South Hills.  Sit in traffic forever while Tucker says “car car car” repeatedly and Sam says “Why are we stopped?  Why are we going slow?  Is there a red light?  What is traffic? Why don’t we go faster?”

5:40 PM – Pick up Chipotle for dinner and then drive to Dormont to look at a house.  Aaron meets us there at about 6:20.

6:20 PM – Go look at a house for sale to possibly live in or possibly buy as an investment or possibly for no real purpose at all other than we like to look at houses.  Wander around Dormont for a while then drive home.  Sam falls asleep in the car…

7 PM – Get home.  Try to convince the kids to eat some of their dinner that they refused to eat earlier.  Play

7:40 PM – not bath night for the boys so we put them in pajamas and do the bed time thing.

8:10 PM – boys in bed.  Aaron gets changed and heads to the Troy Hill house to work on it.

8:15 PM – I clean up the house then take a shower.  Then I put on music, sit on the couch and start typing this.

9:30 PM – Read/look at things online then I’ll probably go to bed around 11
