Here's what this past Tuesday looked like:
6:22 I hear T talking in his room. I hop out of bed and go get him. (Best part of my day, by far) I nurse him and we eat breakfast together. We're both huge fans of the sugar free oatmeal bake I made for the week. Coffee for me and pureed prunes for the boy.
He sure keeps me on my toes!
6:45 T goes in his exersaucer with some puffs (magical things, I tell ya) and I get all the garbage and recycling ready. Our garbage service can come so early in the am, so you gotta have it all ready to go.
7:00 Play with T and Sadie. Get T ready for the day and we play in his room for a while. My coffee goes in the microwave for the third time this am ;)
7:45 T is getting wicked tired and rubbing his eyes. I put him in bed and he falls asleep pretty much right away
8:00 I check the news, my e-mail and a couple of blogs. I Facebook some people for their mailing addresses and write out some Christmas cards.
8:15 Leave for the gym for spin class. This month is Member Appreciation Month at my gym company, so I am able to go to any club. I picked the top notch club because it's such a nice facility and they have rooms for every class. Sadly, my home club doesn't have a spin room. Sniff, sniff. On the plus side though, my gym is all women and doesn't have any macho men dropping weights :D
10:00 Leave the gym after spin class and get home to a happy little boy. I hang out with T for a while and then shower. Yup, showered after playing with my little man.
10:30 Little man goes down for a nap. I shower, get ready for the day and compile my grocery list
1:30 We leave for groceries and to sell K's iPhone 5. (this ends up taking a long time) T and I walk around Target for the hour and end up buying him a sun shade for the car window. I of course almost bought a lot of little outfits. I always end up putting things back. A "My First Christmas" outfit is clearly in order this year though
3:30 We leave the mall for groceries and realize he is due for his nap and wouldn't hold up to groceries so we skip them and stop for a burrito and burrito bowl. Mmm. I had to get no spice as I was going to be sharing mine with T. He loved the refried beans.
4:15 Stop at the country mart for some squash. It's local and inexpensive there!
4:30 Get back home and try to put T down for a nap. He sat and talked in his crib for a good half hour. No intentions of napping at all.
5:00 Get T from his crib and play with him. Nurse him and give him his dinner (oatmeal bake, bread and some grapes
5:00 to 7:30 Hang out, toss the ball to Sadie, do some dishes, etc. Kenny leaves for a work related event and Tate discovered the bottom drawer's contents. A bath for T happened in this time period, too. Bath time is a fave!
7:30 Nurse T, say a little good night prayer and put him into bed. I don't even think he cried, just right to sleep.
7:45 The cleaning bug hit me so I tidied up the living room and kitchen. Then I vacuumed, mopped and cleaned the upstairs bathroom. Hmm, why not do some laundry, too?!
8:00 Kenny gets back home and we download the Sunday episode of Homeland. Gahh, what a stressful episode. Awesome as always, but had me stressed out.
9:30 I write out some more Christmas card addresses, browse Pinterest for some time (i.e longer than I anticipated as per usual ha!) and start getting ready for bed.
11:00 Hop in bed. Zzzzzz.
What time do you usually get up in the am?
Coffee first thing in the am? Or tea?
