"Day in the life"
So today I am doing a link up "party". Go check out Holly's blog. She's a cool chick, hysterical, and an inspiration to me for running and weight loss. I love reading her blog. Any-who enough about her lets get to me :)
Today I will be giving you a run down of a typical day in the Bobbitt house.
But for those of you that are new to my blog check out my "disclaimer" on the right of the screen before you begin and let me tell you a little bit about me and my family :)
My name is Emily, I'm 26 and have a new found passion for running. I am a follower of Christ, He is my Lord and savior.
I'm also a Wife to a wonderful Man named Josh for almost 7 years.
We have three beautiful kiddos together.
Becca is 5
Nate is 3
Eli is 6 months
So this is a little taste of what its like in the Bobbitt house on any given day
4:50 Alarm goes off. Time to go run
5:45 Back home and stretch
6:00 Fix hubby his lunch and kiss him goodbye
6:15 Nate gets up while I'm in the shower
6:20 Get Nate settled in front of the tv with an eggo waffle (gotta keep him quite some how) :)
6:25 Eli wakes up and is ready to eat so I go feed him
6:40 Nate and Eli are fed and content in the den
6:50 Quiet time. Bible study, bible reading, prayer
7:30 Get Eli dressed and take his 6 month pictures I forgot to take on Sunday
7:40 Becca gets up and I feed her breakfast (Lucky Charms)
7:50 Read a few emails while Becca and Nate Brush teeth, get dressed, and take care of Phineas
8:00 Lay Eli down for a nap
8:15 Start school. Bible reading, questions, memory verse
8:30 Phonics. Review letter 'L' 'T' and 'F'
8:50 Math. Calendar, Counting bears, and pattern blocks. Eli wakes up so he hangs out in the highchair while we do school
9:10 Art. Mystery Painting that did not turn out as good as I hoped...
9:30 Becca and Nate watch a Leap Frog video to help with Phonics while I clean up from art, unload the dishwasher, and clean Eli's bottles
9:50 Feed Eli
10:00 Snack Time. Carrots and ranch dressing
10:10 Eli plays in the highchair while I finally fix me something to eat. Eggs, toast, and milk. Free Time for Becca and Nate.
10:30 I finish getting myself ready, do my make-up and fix my hair while Becca and Nate play outside with Phineas and Eli has play time on the floor in my room
10:50 Becca and Nate get the "Boredom Muchies" So we got out front to ride bikes to get over them
11:45 Becca and Nate sit down to eat (hotdogs, apples, and goldfish) and I fix a bottle for Eli
12:00 Eli is down for a nap, Becca and Nate are playing in the den, and I tackle the mound of clothes that didn't get folded yesterday.
12:20 The clothes are folded and in piles but didn't get put away. Time for me to eat.
12:30 I sit down with my lunch (Tuna fish sandwich and an apple) and the computer to read some e-mails, do some facebook stalking, and post Eli's 6 month photos.
1:00 Eli woke up (probably because he went to sleep while eating his bottle earlier) So I quickly warmed up the other half of his bottle and went in his room to feed him and get him back to sleep to finish the rest of his nap
1:20 Do some chores around the house: Sweep/mop kitchen, put away clothes, vacuum...
2:00 Take a little break to do some reading
3:30 I'm startled awake by my phone ringing and I realize I've fallen asleep while reading. Josh is calling to say he's off work and on the way home so I venture out of my room to see what kind of damage Becca and Nate have done to the house while I was asleep
3:40 Eli wakes up ready to eat
4:00 Start preparing dinner
4:15 Hubby gets home!! :) and dinner is cooking
4:20 Get all of Becca's soccer stuff together, get water bottles filled, pack Eli's bag, and get the kids ready
5:00 Dinner is ready. Bacon wrapped tenderloin, steamed broccoli, and corn and we all sit at the table to eat
5:20 We all get the table cleared off and kitchen cleaned
5:25 Get shoes on and head out the door for Becca's first soccer game!
7:15 Back home. Becca's team lost :(
7:20 We go into bedtime mode. Josh gets the older two in the tub and I bathe Eli in the sink. Followed by PJ's, brushing teeth, story, prayers...
7:35 Eli finally eats because he wouldn't eat at the game.
7:50 Eli fell asleep while eating and is in bed for the night.
8:00 Older two in bed after kisses, hugs, and "don't let the bed bugs bite"
8:15 I get Becca's school plan done for tomorrow while Josh runs to sonic to take advantage of the half price shake deal
Even though it's not 8:30 just yet I know how the night is going to end so I'm going to go ahead and finish up so I can enjoy some hubby time.....
8:30 Josh and I drink our milkshakes while watching netflix
9:20 We are old and will be headed to bed.....
So that's basically my day. I know this was very detailed compared to most of the other bloggers that did the "Day in the Life" but thats just my personality.
I hope you enjoyed it.
