Day In the Life

I’ve been meaning to share a day in the life for awhile. I’ve seen both blogger and photographer friends do this and as someone who loves to capture the little moments, I wanted to document an average day. I wanted to pick one when Gus was in school, but by the time I decided to do it, it was his last day of school! Oh well, take a look at what a busier-than-average day here looks like.

6:58 – I’ve started waking up just before my alarm clock. I hate the sound of that thing, so I’m eager to jump out of bed and turn it off before I have to.

Aaron has already gotten up, let the dogs out and left for work, so they aren’t impressed with me.

Lena is the first one up after me, as she moves through life at Lena-pace.

Now, the boys. One yells “GOOD MORNING, MAMA!!!!” and the other needs a bit more coaxing to get out of bed.

Applesauce for breakfast.

I can’t be too far from these two while they’re eating breakfast. They can get a bit wild.

I do take a few minutes to lay on my bed and check email and read the Skimm.
2015-05-30_0024

Uh oh, 7:37. Better get moving.

Dogs ride along for school drop off.
2015-05-30_0027

Two kids dropped off miraculously on time.
2015-05-30_0029

Gus and I have another half hour before I can drop him off AND I need to pick up something to bring to his school’s potluck later today.
2015-05-30_0030

After our quick grocery store trip, it’s time to drop Gus off at school.
2015-05-30_0031

Back home with a little bit of time to spare before I need to work.

Prep food to take to Gus’s school potluck. I went with cheese and crackers, knowing it would get eaten at home even if it didn’t at the potluck.
2015-05-30_0034

Laundry.
2015-05-30_0036

And work for a bit.
2015-05-30_0035

Then, I have to head to Gus’s school for the program and the potluck afterwards. The program is cute and Gus stays a bit more focused and participates this time!

We don’t have too much time, because Reed and Lena have a dentist appointment. We head to pick them up, but Reed is already in the middle of lunch! So, he brings his whole lunch tray with him. He tells me about his healthy choices. “I usually pick 3 healthy things and one not so healthy thing.”
2015-05-30_0038

Lena hasn’t eaten yet, so we have to head home quick so she can eat before we go. I make her and Gus quesadillas.
2015-05-30_0039

Now, the dentist. Gus and I hang out in the waiting room while Reed and Lena go back for their cleanings.
2015-05-30_0039

I am relieved to get home after the dentist.
2015-05-30_0041

And, even more relieved that Gus will take a nap!
2015-05-30_0042

Reed and Lena, dressed as twins today, finish up the cheese and crackers, then watch a movie.
2015-05-30_0043

This gives me some time to settle in and work.
2015-05-30_0044

After awhile Reed and Lena move outside to the trampoline.
2015-05-30_0045

And when Gus joins them, I go out for a bit.
2015-05-30_0048

I hear the dogs getting excited, which tells me… Aaron’s home!
2015-05-30_0049

We have burgers for dinner.
2015-05-30_0050

I’m not sure why we let these two sit next to each other.
2015-05-30_0051

2015-05-30_0052

Then it’s time to get ready for bed.
2015-05-30_0053

“Will you brush for me, please?”
2015-05-30_0054

2015-05-30_0055

I find him already in bed, reading a book. It’s a chapter book and he’s pretty enthusiastic about it.

2015-05-30_0057

2015-05-30_0058

Goodnight, everyone.
2015-05-30_0059

And this is how introverts hang out… just kidding. After such a busy day, we both have a bit more work to catch up on before we get to settle in and watch our latest TV show, the Last Man on Earth.
