Monday Morning wake up at 1am to a crying baby. Doesn't need food, doesn't need changed, just needs his momma to hold him while he falls back asleep.
2am back in bed to wait for the 5am wake up from big girl who is awake and doesn't want to be alone.
6am starts the day with showers, breakfast snacks and out the door to get to daycare and back for the 8am work day.
Workdays consist of inconsistent meetings and deadlines and sporatic phone calls that make "lunch gym time" impossible.
5pm workday over and time to make dinner. As the children get home, 545pm starts crazy dinner time or really just individual food fights between my children and the floor.
630pm starts bathtime and bedtime routines. Baby boy goes down around 730 after his bottle and big girl goes to bed around 8pm.
9pm regularly consists of a wail from big girls room because she needs 1 of 4 things:
needs to go potty even though she went before bed
needs water like she hasn't had a drink in weeks
needs to be covered with her "special" blanket, then throws it off after you put it on
needs a hug (alright I guess that one's ok)
10pm consists of strict bedtime as DH & I need at least 5 hours of sleep to function as a human most days.
In between these crazy times, the house needs cleaned, laundry needs done, groceries need bought, christmas decorations need to be hung, presents need to be bought, visits with family need to happen, yards need to be taken care of. (By both DH and I)
- This ladies and gentleman is why parents of small children can't work out!!! - Any advice as to where we can fit it in would be great!
