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.
6:20 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)
