a day in the life...

i have seen posts like this on other blogs and i'm fascinated by the schedules of each baby.  i wish i would have done one of these earlier, just to see how things have changed (because they have).  what never ceases to amaze me is the fact that we spend literally 95% of our waking hours either working or with c....sometimes I wonder what we used to do.  so this schedule is a typical day in our current situation (this gives/takes from week to week, but this is typical).

  • 5:34am, my alarm goes off.  i need to get up now so that all three of us can get ready and we can be at work by 8...i hit snooze.
  • 6:00am, chuck's alarm goes off.  sometime between now and 6:15 i get out of bed and hit the shower
  • 6:30, charlee starts to stir in her crib
  • 6:35, charlee is ready for the day.  i head upstairs, change her, nurse her, and get her ready for school (sometimes chuck does the changing and dressing part)
  • 7:00, we are starting to scramble. we would like to leave the house about 7:10-7:15.  things that are happening now: packing lunch, packing my pump and supplies, packing charlee's bag for the day (diapers, wet bag, milk, extra clothes, etc), ironing clothes, packing workout bags
  • 7:30, we leave the house. later than we want
  • 7:45, drop charlee off at daycare.  we tag team it, and we can do it quick
  • 8:07, (it is always 8:07).  get to work
  • 8:07-4:45 WORK.  during the day charlee eats at 10, 1, and 4; i pump at 9:30, 12:30, and 3:30
  • 5:00 pick charlee up at school
  • 5:30, get home and unpack.  play with rigsby.  play with charlee.  sit on the deck, enjoy a beverage

  • 6:00, nurse charlee (or solid food, we have just started this routine)

  • 6:15, start to figure out what we are going to eat **sometimes we don't eat, sometimes we cook, sometimes we go out.  it usually happens between 6-8
  • 8:00, bathtime, story time
  • 8:15-8:30, nurse charlee, put her to bed.  she usually goes down easy after eating.  i have heard this is a bad habit...but it works for us.
  • 9:30-10, go to bed
  • do it all over again...

and we wouldn't have it any other way!
