What do you do?

During the day?  What is your typical day a nutshell (during the week)?

For me, I get up at 6am Monday - Friday get all four kids dressed and ready to go to the school.  My oldest (5) is in full day kindergarten, my daughter (4) is in half day pre-kindergarten so my 3 year old and 1 year old have to come with me.  So I head up to the school around 7:35am, my daughter goes to her class around 7:45- 7:50am, I then wait around for 10 more minutes until the bell rings for my son to go to class.  Then load the younger two back into the car, head home...get home around 8:15am.  Unload the girls, get into the house, clean up, vacuum, do the laundry, do the dishes, wipe down counters and whatever else needs to be done around the house.  I go to pick up my daughter at 10:30am...haha.

Come home again around 11:05am, make lunch, etc...put the baby down for a nap...clean up, do homework, play on cafemom for a while, get on facebook, have some down time for a minute.  I leave at 2:30 to get a parking spot to pick up my son at 3:05pm.  

I get home around 3:15pm, help my son with his homework, get dinner started so that it's ready at about 5pm, we have family time from 5:30-6:30, quick baths and bed time at 7pm for the kids.

I should be in bed right now but I decided to give you my day during the week in a nutshell...haha!  So what is your day like during the week?

    wake up, wake up kids, get everyone dressed, make lunch, breakfast and take the kids to school.


    work out


    either clean up or take shower (depends on what I need to do for the day)


    either a project around the house, run errands or volunteer (or some sort of combination)


    pick kids up from school, snack, drive them to sports


    karate/kickboxing or golf (depends on the day)


    make and eat dinner

    kids get ready for school/bed, I usually am folding clothes while I watch some "adult" TV


    hop in bed and talk with the hubby (or other things.....he....he....he....)

    If after 10pm I can't fall asleep, I will usually persuse the internet on my laptop or read until I fall asleep.

 It kinda depends on the day. I'm a SAHM so we really don't have that huge of a schdeule or anything. My son is only 11 months old so he's not in school either.

We usually wake up around 7. Feed him watch tv and play around. Usually about 8:30 hes down for his first nap. Wakes up about 10ish and he eats breakfast. We run errands or do whatever from 10-2. 2 is his nap time and he'll wake around 4. Then I feed him again, we play some more and about 5:30 his dad comes home. About 7 is bath time and 8 is bed time.

5pm dh comes home, we prepare dinner

6pm eat

8pm dd showers

8:30 dd goes to bed

anywhere from 10-midnight dh and I shower and go to bed (sometimes it's much later than midnight)

You are crazy busy!

8 am wake up the kids. Breakfast, get dressed, etc.

8:30 leave to take Cam to school.

9 get home feed Kaitlyn if Sam didn't do school drop off.

12 naptime

Lunch whenever she wakes up.

2-3 wake up Sam. Run errands or whatever we need to do.

350 get cam from school. Get home and do homework.

4:30-5 start dinner and eat.

6 Sam leaves for work and I normally take the kids for a walk for about an hour.

730-8 baths, story. Bed 8-8:30. Pack Cams lunch.

Then of course I have all sorts of random stuff in between during the day. But its pretty flexible with just Kaitlyn at home.

I don't have a solid routine aside from getting up at 6:30 making sure we are out the door by 7:45. I do whatever needs done around the house while the girls are in school. At 2:30 I go get in the car rider line to pick them up. Make sure homework gets done when we get home. We have dinner when dh gets home, sometimes it's ready more often it's not. Girls in bed by 8:30. We've been staying up til about 11.
