  • Alarm set for 5am
    Wake up and make sure hubby has lunch bag all set, and coffee and breakfast before he leaves at 545am
    I get myself ready.
    6am wake up the boys, they have to brush their teeth, make bed, get dressed, get snacks, and do hair by 645-650 the latest
    615am wake up daughter, brush teeth, dress, do hair, make sure she has her lunch and things in her bag.
    6:45-6:50am heading out the door, everyone has their backpacks and whatever else they need.
    7:15am drop of daughter at preschool, give her hugs and kisses and out the door.
    7:35am drop of boys at their school, tell them to behave, try their best, and I love them, ect. then they're off.
    7:45am arrive at my college campus parking lot, and drive around looking for parking, saying why did I not leave earlier?
    7:50am find a parking spot usually on the opposite side of where my classes are.
    8am after racing to class I finally arrive, thinking wow I'm exausted!

  • I do not set an alarm, the babies are up between 7:30 and 8:30. 9:00 at the latest. But I try to get out the door by 9:00 to go the the YMCA....the child watch program is from 9-11. So I like to go work out and have me time for about an hour to an hour and a half. The 2 solid hours would be great, but we just can't get there by 9. On Wednesdays we go to the library for a play group from 10-11:30. It is just up the street. That is our typical weekly morning routine. Awesome because when we get home it's time to get lunch ready, then clean up, then a half hour of wind down time and then nap time....for both babies if all goes well LOL

  • I get up when my daughter won't go back to sleep or my husband gets up for work - so anywhere from 7:30-8:30. I put my daughter in the exersaucer and then I feed the dogs and make my husband's lunch and fix breakfast for myself and my daughter. When the dogs are finished eating, I change her diaper and then we have breakfast. Husband usually leaves around the time the dogs are finishing eating (I have one that takes her sweet time) or we are starting breakfast. She usually poops during breakfast so I change her again immediately after and then we go to a nearby park where I walk 3.5 miles. Sometimes I bring the dogs, sometimes I don't.
