What do you do all day?

As I have gone to play group, visiting teaching, Relief Society meetings and church, I've been asked several times, "What do you do all day?" Here's a run down of a typical day.

The girls usually wake up around 7:30. Once I hear them up, I hop in the shower. Ewan sleeps until about 8 or 8:30. This is Olivia in her pajamas Sunday morning (the 14th).

Depending on how breakfast goes, the girls take a bath.

Around 8, they're out of the tub and dressed. I've been trying to do their hair so they get used to it. They have to be distracted for a few minutes while I do it.

The girls love their milk sippies. Around 9, they get a milk sippy.

Every other day, Ewan gets a bath. Boy, does he love it! The girls try to help by throwing toys in for him to play with. He hasn't gotten one in the head yet...yay!

They play. Potato Heads, boxes, stuffed animals, dress-up...you name it, they play it.

Sometimes, they have play-dates. This is our neighbor Elliot. I've been watching him on Thursdays so his mom can take some classes at the college.

They play in Ewan's car seat a lot. Sometimes, I have to get the other car seat out so everyone can sit in a car seat. Asilee loves it!

We eat lunch around 12:30. The girls aren't really into peanut butter. They eat apples, cheese, crackers, and lunch meat. Sometimes they get Cheezits.


They all take naps around 1pm for about 2 hours. This is when I get stuff done...!

I use this...

and do this...

and I read this...

and I use this...

and this...

to make this (and dinner if it's a casserole or I do the prep work for dinner so it's not so crazy when Paul gets home)



and then they wake up around 3-3:30. We play, eat snacks, drink milk/apple juice, watch a movie and wait for Daddy.

Paul comes home between 4:30 and 5, and then I use these to go running. I'm upto six miles. Some days he has late meetings and I can't do this. So, if anyone has suggestions for 30min work outs while babies are napping, let me know.

When I get home, I get a few of these. It makes it worth doing all over again tomorrow.

I use this a lot because...

I change these a lot.
I also nurse Ewan every 2-3 hours. I chose not to photograph that.
Well, there you have it. Don't worry, Paul's not one to ever ask me "What do you do all day?"

You're amazing! I can't believe you get as much done as you do. I can hardly get anything done with 1 kid!
