I can’t even use the word schedule right now. If someone were to take over for the day, I’d have a heck on a time explaining to them what needed to be done and when.
…yes, Kaitlyn needs to eat… every so often?
…and she needs to go down…when she seems tired?
…Hailey wakes up from her nap… at some point?
Seriously. We are flying by the seat of our pants over here. Overall, it’s working out OK I guess, but I’d be lying if I said my crazy inner scheduler wasn’t going a little crazy. I was texting with my friend yesterday about it and how I needed to totally reset then she brought up some great points… Halloween and Day Light Savings. Why bother?
So we shall continue flying footloose and fancy free until next week when maybe I’ll try to implement a little more structure to our days. For now, here is what footloose and fancy free looks like for us…
The day really started way before breakfast, around 5:30am. I heard Kaitlyn, but by the time I got to her room, she was quiet again. So I started my blog post until I heard her really get up. 6:15ish? I fed her and she seemed so tired, so I put her back down, finished up the blog and got Hailey up at 8:00. Kaitlyn still hadn’t woken back up so Hailey and I took our time with breakfast and playing around.
I washed sheets and got myself dressed. Look, real clothes!
Well, kind of. Those are maternity jeans. The comfort just really can’t be beat.
Kaitlyn finally woke up around 9:15 and by the time everyone was fed and dressed, we were in the car around 10:15 heading to Barnes and Noble. Hailey played with some toys before begging to read books.
We made it through a couple, but now that Kaitlyn crawls, she is unsatisfied staying in one place and I just couldn’t stomach her crawling all over the carpet of the book store, so we packed it up and headed back home for lunch.
Thanks to some Sunday food prep, my salsa chicken salad came together quickly, which was helpful as I tried to make Hailey’s lunch and feed Kaitlyn who had just woken up from a car nap- blast. Thanks Minnie Mouse Christmas Special for helping me out during all of that.
Hailey was in bed for nap (not to be confused with actually napping) around 1:30. Since Kaitlyn scored some zzz’s in the car, she wasn’t tired yet, so I marinated steaks and sliced sweet potatoes for dinner while she hung out. We also rolled around on the floor and took a ton of selfies until she finally seemed tired and the girls’ naps overlapped for 45 glorious minutes, in which I contemplated a nap but sucked it up, grabbed a piece of chocolate and spent some time with my email inbox and working on a project I have going instead.
Once Kaitlyn was back up and fed, I snagged a snack and we waited for Hailey to get up.
It was a warm, gorgeous fall day, so we loaded up and walked to a local playground.
I’m grateful that for being a busy bee, Kaitlyn seems to like stroller rides now. She loves that Hailey sits right next to her, too.
Have I mentioned I think she’s teething?
We hung out at the playground for quite a while and I played with my camera a lot. I’m trying to learn how to take real pictures. I still have a lot to learn.
Koda got to run around too and show off her svelte figure. I’m not sure I ever updated you guys, but Koda lost about 10 pounds through the green bean diet and exercise.
Once we got back home, it was a blue of dinner for Hailey, bottle practice for Kaitlyn, baths and finally the girls were in bed by 7:15. Then David and I pulled out the yoga mat and did our new routine of 15 minutes of yoga.
Can you call it a routine if we’ve only done it 3 times? And yes, there was wine. And I’m sorry I just showed you David’s feet.
How about this instead?
Steak with sautéed shallots and horseradish sauce, roasted sweet potato rounds and kale Caesar salad. At about 8:30.
Then, as usual, bed by 9:45. One day I’ll be able to make it to 10 again, right?
What time do you get up/go to bed?
Are you a schedule lover or do you prefer to go with the flow?
Thanks Jenn for hosting WIAW!
