Today, and Every day!

7:00 Wake up, get kids ready for school, get my self ready to take kids to school, feed baby breakfast.

8:20Cue neighbor boy for car pool and insane amounts of emotional drama.
8:38 Neighbor boy exits on account we are going to be late for school, ( which starts at 9;00 and let me state that we only live about 7 blocks from the school)

8:40 leave to drop kids off to school.
9:15 Dr appt. for Gabbi's 15 month check up.
10;00 Arrive in Independence for preschool open house.
11:45 Pick Gunnar up from AM kindergarten
12:00 Lunch Time and Nap time

12:45 I make a meal for my self and sit down to eat and the phone rings, or someone stops by, or the dog runs away, or hannah over flowed the toilet, or lee called and needs me to take him something, or ( you get the idea)

1:30 switch the laundry
2:00 Run dish water and try to decide what to make for dinner.
2:30 Hey lets have a play date. My house or yours? Lol ( I actually really love those days)
3:20 Oh crap I forgot I have to go pick up Emma at school. Its been really fun we should do it again. Hannah! Find your shoes we have to go....

4:00 Arrive home and switch the laundry.
4:15 "Mom I don't know how to do my homework?"
4:30 wash the silverwear that has been soaking for most of the day.

5:00 Start dinner
5:30 Call lee, "Honey where r u?" " When will you be home?"
6:00 Eat.!!!!!!!( if you didn't catch on before, my lunch is still sitting on the counter untouched from before due to ("insert any form of time consuming catastrophe that you find amusing")
6:01 Really it takes a few more minutes for the kids to finish up, but not much.
6:02 Kids out to play with the neighbor boys, so I am able to clean up the kitchen.

7:15 "Honey where r the kids?"
7:30 baths, jammies,bed time!!!!!!
8:00 Start or finish a sewing project. Oh man I forgot to switch the laundry again.
9:15 Off to the bed room to relax and watch a movie.

10:00 "Hey hon, you wanna "Snuggle"?" and as you can tell from the quotation marks I don;t really mean "snuggle" if you get my drift. (And I don't really think I should write this on the internet, but for now I find it somewhat entertaining)

There are a few minor adjustment that could be made to my daily routine. Things like actually finishing and folding the laundry, or perhaps going to the grocery store, (but these days I find is less like a chore due to the wonderful play land where I drop my kids off for two hours), post office, or many many different types of health care appointments, planning parties or get togethers for friends, church callings, Not to mention all of the small craft project or sewing I like to squeeze in every once in awhile :) This is not a post to complain or whine about my day to day routine, but just so you know how I was able to drop the baby weight, and why I don't blog, or why I am ok with my house not looking spotless, and sometimes even letting my kids leave the house not wearing shoes.

I yell at my kids, they get spanks and time outs, My dog is not house trained, ( and if any one is interested she is yours) ( not kidding) I am not good at keeping up on folding laundry, or dishes, my bedding only gets washed every 1-2 months unless we have some massive body explosion from one of the 4 monstrosities I call my kids, bathrooms, well i buy the really expensive clorox toilet bowl tablets," they r worth every penny" and mopping and sweeping is done when somebody has a bad attitude and needs it readjusted, or when Hannah finds the wipes and gets an itch to "Help"
I am not perfect! But am amazed that once in a blue moon have the appearance of such. I enjoy my life and I love my kids. My husband makes me happy, ( even after he plays ball and decides to wipe his dripping sweaty face all over mine) I do not want to try and be someone I am not. I don't want to make decisions based on the "Image" of someone I see. This is me in all my "imperfect glory". I hope you can all revel in yours.

AND THAT is why YOU are my best friend! Because you are real to the core...no fakeness or false appearances, you are who you are and people can take it or leave it...ME I WILL TAKE IT! :) Now, I'm packing so I can get my little butt out the door and head to Cleveland to sleep on your 2 month sheets, diaper wiped floors and ignore whatever "snuggling" may be happening in the next room! Love ya!

Carlie said...

Jeff & Ashlee Olsen & Family said...

Oh, I miss you guys. :(

Ashley said...

Haha, Sounds way too familiar to all of us...at least I would assume it does! Only mine consists of PBS babysitting my kids every morning while I puke my guts out and wonder why I ever "snuggled" with my husband in the first place!

I think that the best part about this post is when you said that your husband makes you happy and you love your kids. Because in the grand scheme of things that's all that really matters. And by the way, I think you're a great mom!
