What do I do all day? shocking as it seems, the life of a stay at home mom isn't as luxurious as you may think...contrary to some belief, it is NOT stay-cation full of hair twirling and relaxing.
Here is a typical day at my house:
5:30 - 7:30 AM- Sienna wakes up & starts her coo-ing, chatting away kicking around in her bassinet. Hubs gets up for work and I take baby into bed with me....sometimes she nurses and falls back asleep, sometimes she just wants to be up and play.
8AM - cranky baby - we get up, I change her diaper...put her in her bouncer next to me and pump while trying to entertain her at the same time ( not an easy task being tied down to the pump)
8-9:30 AM- Feed her half of what I just pumped, get her dressed for the day, play a little bit until she gets tired enough for a nap so mama who is starving at this point can eat, or brush her teeth atleast
9:30 - 10:30AM - Put Sienna in her swing for a nap, turn on the news or cooking channel, quickly get dressed, wash up, brush my teeth and make breakfast
10:30- 11:30AM - clean up, laundry, check emails, BLOG, feed the dog, make the dog go pee in the yard so I dont have to walk him :P and just do misc in the short time window of free time I have
11:30-12:45- Sienna wakes up...we play, I pump, feed her, change her, play some more, take a million pics of her :)
12:45 - 2 - Baby is down for another nap usually, if not she goes in her high chair while I make myself lunch, do dishes, wash her bottles & pump parts, talk to my Mom
2-3:30 - Sofia comes over (3x a week) I spend time with her, she usually wakes up Sienna, pump ( this pumping sesh is a nightmare because Sofia gets into stuff and I cant chase after her), hang out with them two
3:30 - Sofia gets picked up, Danny comes home (woohoo!)
3:30 - 5:30 -Danny takes over right away - plays with her, feeds her, takes her and Charlie on a walk to the mailbox and hangs out with her till he makes dinner, usually she goes for nap #3 around 5
5:30- 8:30 - Hubs makes dinner( lucky me:), I do things around the house that I didnt get to before till baby wakes up, pump & feed, we all hang together, eat dinner, take a walk if its not too hot out...get Sienna ready for bed around 8, pump again, feed & put her down for the night.
8:30 - Zzzz time - hubs usually does stuff for work, I relax & hang in the office with him while he does work...catch up with friends & social media till I get sleepy, which usually is quite early
(Obviously there are days when the schedule is not like this, sometimes Sienna boycotts naptime, makes a mess that calls for doing laundry immediately, or Charlie does things that make me want to give him away ( just kidding) hes been really bad lately
