Here's another day in the life post for you! I woke up on this Monday and decided to document everything we did today. Both the crazy and the mundane. Here we go!
6am: My alarm goes off. I don't move because I'm afraid I'll wake up Andrew and Jenna. I am smashed in between them. Jenna woke up at 4am crying so I brought her in our bed.
6:30 - Ok I really need to get up. I manage not to wake anyone up, but I'm afraid Andrew will fall out of bed. I dress really quickly and then he wakes up so I bring him downstairs, along with the big boys. It's a flurry of getting dressed, eating, packing lunches and homework, tracking down jackets and shoes, etc. My Dad comes over every morning to take the boys to school, which is a huge blessing.
Seamless bible study book. I blogged about it last year after receiving it at Christmas. I am ashamed to say I am only half way through. But I really do love it! Such a good study for strengthening your Bible knowledge.
my most comfortable pair of booties. I think it's because they are wedges. I bought them 2 years ago on Amazon of all places.
I need to run by the mail store to return a couple things. First is a set of Hardy Boy Clue Books. We accidentally ordered two sets for Ryan, and he obviously only needs one. I've heard good things about these books, so hopefully he will love them!
Second, I need to return my latest Trendsend box. This is that styling service that's similar to Stitch Fix, but without the styling fee. I actually fell in love with this top from my box, but couldn't justify keeping it due to the price. If it goes on sale please send it back to me, Trendsend stylist! (oh and I just heard that Stitch Fix is still waiving your first styling fee through the end of the year!)
9am - Jenna eats her breakfast while I start my 2nd load of laundry of the morning (need to buy Lucas night diapers! I am so sick of washing pee sheets), do the dishes, sweep the floor, and package up my returns. While I'm doing my chores, Andrew manages to chew off our reindeer's antler. Poor guy.
Me and the two littles drive down the street to Walmart to grab a few things and kill some time. I remember to buy Lucas some overnight diapers. Andrew is still screaming so I rip open a package of Gerber snacks for him in the store.
On the way into the police station Ryan was concerned that we weren't supposed to be there, like we might get in trouble. Then we saw a shiny black Challenger, and he and Lucas decided that it might belong to a "bad guy". It made me look at Ryan and really think about how young and innocent he is. It was so cute!
Alexa played some Christmas music for us. I seriously have a love/hate relationship with her. Adam accidentally ordered her and she just kind of stayed. Do you have an Alexa?
7pm - To see Santa Claus again! This time he was on a fire truck driving around our neighborhood, blasting music.
Miss Daisy is Crazy. Oh my goodness, Ryan was cracking up. It's a book about a 2nd grade boy who hates school. Ahem....sound familiar? Ryan and Lucas both thought it was hilarious and they giggled the entire time I was reading. The cookies and candy canes they ate right before bed may have had something to do with it!
8:30 - Andrew is asleep and Adam is home! We talk about our day while I wash dishes and pack lunches. Andrew is awake again by 9 so it's back upstairs to nurse him back to sleep. And then I blogged. Goodnight.
