Last week I picked a day to write out what we did all day. I always find it fun to read about people’s every day lives!
5:20 My husband and 8 yo son go out to shovel the snow.
5:25 I was going to try to sleep more, but my baby woke up 5 minutes later. So I nursed her and then got my 2 yo who also woke up pretty early today.
6:00 I shower and dress the 2 little ones.
7:00 I start making bread and stew. The kids eat breakfast.
8:00 I nurse the baby and put her down for a nap. The kids do morning chores and practice violin.
9:15 We do our Bible Time (talk about Sharing, review our verses, pray)
9:45 Leave to go to gymnastics for my middle girls. While there I read a couple of library books to the boys and crochet 2 lines of my project.
11:00 Go to the car service place to get a recall fixed.
11:45 Home for lunch, the kids play, I use the computer (order Kit Packs from Hands of a Child since they’re having a clearance sale and my printer has been unusable for a month!)
1:00 Read books to the 2 yo and 3 yo and put them down for naps. Listen to my older 2 boys read aloud. Then I read "Summer With the Moodys" to my 3 oldest kids.
2:00 My baby and 2 yo are still not sleeping.
2:30 I change dirty diapers for both of them–still hoping they’ll sleep so I can rest.
3:00 They finally fall asleep!
3:15 My 3 oldest kids noisily run downstairs. So I head down with them and have them straighten up the house. I realize that my 2 yo did not fall asleep–oh well, it’s not going to happen today.
3:30 Two older ladies from my Small Group Bible Study come over to play with the kids.
4:15 I leave to take a stew meal to my friend who had just had a baby. I was going to run another errand or two, but my 2 yo and 3 yo beg to go with me, so I let them. No errands with them along!
5:00 I’m back and get dinner set up for us, the ladies leave, and my husband comes home.
