Today I’m going to share a little behind the scenes with you. I know I always love reading these kinds of posts from my favorite bloggers. I love seeing what their day is like. My life is currently in a major transition! I have worked since high school. I was a teacher for 9 years. I was always off during holidays and for summer, but other than that, I was a working mom. I am still adjusting to not working. I’ve always wanted to stay home with my kids, and I feel VERY blessed to be able to do so, but I am still adjusting to this new routine. New routine, new baby, 2 year old, resistant potty trainer, breastfeeding, home all day….let’s just say it’s different for me.
So here you go…a peek into my life on a typical Monday…
At 6:30, I go wake up my kids.
Time to feed little man. I usually try to do some work at the computer during this time. It all depends on my 2 year old. Sometimes she can occupy herself with something and other times she will climb all over me.
Time to exercise! I’ll admit that I’m not exactly the most motivated person when it comes to exercising. I really want to love it, but I don’t. I love how I feel, but that usually doesn’t help me. My motivation right now…the last 10 pounds of pregnancy weight left to go!!
Time to go get the big kids from school. We only live a few minutes away. I do not go wait in the long line like some parents. I find going later only takes 10 minutes rather than sitting for an hour!
After homework, I start looking over my 2nd graders math information. We have started Common Core here in Louisiana. It has proven to be quite a challenge and we have a ways to go with the delivery of it. I am a former math teacher, and my daughter and I have spent hours on this stuff. It is getting better, but I started out the year very displeased with the rapid pacing of the curriculum.
Time to clean up after supper. I had one not eat, so I left his food for him. He can be very picky at times. He eventually ate it. If he had his way, he would eat mac and cheese every day.
I’m really scared to leave him on the floor around my 2 year old! Poor baby doesn’t get as much floor time as I would like…but we do what we can.
And just for a funny…here’s how my husband found her the other night before we went to bed. When she was supposed to be falling asleep, she got in her closet, played, and passed out on top of everything!
With my oldest, we write down things we are both grateful for in her journal. We each write down three things from the day. We are also preparing for her first reconciliation in November. She will do this and in the Spring, she will receive her First Communion.
Well that’s a look at my day. Hope you enjoyed!
