New Sched

So I thought it’s be fun to post my current daily schedule…for future reference (aka when I start thinking that having  baby might be fun).

6am – Wake for the day…or I should say **get up** for the day, since chances are I’ve been awake since about 4:30am patting someone’s bottom trying to get him to go back to sleep.

6:05 Make coffee…almost most important part of the day.

6:15 Shower

6:20 Make sure Dave is up getting Blake ready.

6:45 Wake the beast (aka Coen when he has to be woken up)

6:50 Hold Coen while he whines and cries about being woken up.

7:00 Try to nurse Blake…if he won’t (he is NOT a fan of eating when he is not hungry), then pump (hate, hate!)

7:15 make sure everything is packed and ready to leave (includes: my purse, cell, keys for work), my lunch bag, the Pump (yes it starts with a capital P), diaper bag (with said pumped milk), Coen’s lunch, Coen’s backpack, carseat (which hopefully has Blake in it by this point,))

7:20 Leave for Grandma’s (I don’t know why I always say “grandma’s” since Grandpa nd and Uncle Chad are going to be there too)

7:35 Stop at random coffee shop because Coen has to do a number 2…which involves getting off the wonderful side street I’ve found that has no traffic (and no bathrooms) and across the train track that ALWAYS has a train coming when you have somewhere you REALLY need to be going

7:45 Curse under my breath because I am always running late…and I really, truly hate that.

7:50 Arrive at Grandma’s, see Coens face light up and him run and snuggle with his favorite non-mommy person in the world. That part always gets me.

7:55 Drive to work

8:06 Arrive at work….blah blah blippity blah. Pump, pump, pump.

12pm (preschool days) or 2pm on non preschool days – Leave work to pick up kiddos.

12:30/2:30 – pick up kiddos, hugs kisses, get the #?@! in the car alreadys

1:00 – pick up Coen from preschool or 2:30pm get home…

eat, nap (Blake, lucky fellow), play (bestest part of the day)…wait for the joyous moment when Dave arrives home from work.

6:00 Make dinner, clean pump, bottles

6:30 bath for Blake…try to remember when Coen last had a bath (sometimes he goes for much longer than is really sanitary)

7pm bedtime for Blake

7:30 book and dessert for Coen (Dave and I switch between who puts who to sleep)

8:15 babies are in bed, mama removes beer from fridge (hooray!)

8:30 on – wait with baited breath for Blake to wake up for his next feeding…silently fearing the monitor all the while.

10pm – lay sweet head on the pillow

10:15 – Blake wakes up…and does so every 2 hours or more until the next day.

Sigh. I’m exhausted. (but I’m loving every minute of it…sort of)

    You, on the other hand, are no slacker! Good thing you have so many partners in crime to help you out along the way. 🙂

    You’re amazing. I always wondered how working moms manage with little babies. I was so tired and I stayed at home!

    I’d like to add that my children are on the dirty side of sanitary and I think it’s good for their overall health. Helps them keep the good bacteria and all that stuff. I think there’s some scientific proof to back this up… somewhere…

    Impressive Lady! I friend of mine down here has a month old baby girl, she’s precious, but she said herself,”it’s not all hearts and flowers.” Boy…I can’t wait. If it ever happens anyway.

    I agree with Renee, kids need to get dirty. I think it’s true, if you keep them in a bubble, they’ll not have any resistance to anything. Yeay for no bath day! (says the woman that runs a soap/skin care store) 🙂

    too funny Kirsten (although probably not to you sometimes). It does sound like such a dichotomy of love and then sometimes, not so much. I’m glad you’re enjoying the process, kind of ! 🙂

    but I simply can’t fall back a sleep without you patting my bottom at 4:30am
