Day in the Life - February 2012

Last year I did a Day in the Life on Valentine's Day. I invited a lot of bloggers to take part and got a really good response. This year my three year olds have sapped away my soul and I didn't have the energy to organize something like that. Thankfully for me, Navigating the Mothership does something like this quarterly, so I did another ditl, exactly a year later, and I'll link it to her.

Anyway, here's last year's.

And here's this year's.

We're already starting the day out well. It is rare that I get to wake up and shower without having to tend to toddlers. So, banner day!

Then I go downstairs to meet my bundles of joy and happiness.

Next stop: Breakfast.

Then I start tidying up, and the girls see me taking pictures with the camera. They kindly agree to document me. By which I mean they grab the camera and demand a turn. At least they were kind enough to use soft focus.

My brother's visiting this week! They weren't as kind to him.

Time for Daddy to go to work.

Then some computer time with Tommy while I tidy up.

We're off to the library!

We're hungry, and I don't feel like cooking, so to the Waffle House!

We need to pick up some bread for me and some beer (for my brother) at the Publix. I forgot to take pictures because the girls were being major pills by this point. So here's a shot of my brother's back and his beer as we wrangle them back in the car.

Nap time! No pictures of them because I don't want to disturb the beasts. I used the time to do some editing and some chores.

They wake up from their nap all beauty and grace, of course, and to keep from killing them, I plop them in front of the TV while I set to work cleaning the living room.

That only holds their attention for long enough for them to get over their bad selves, and soon they're using pencils as wands and turning me into a juicebox. Which is really what I deserve for trying to check my email while they're awake.

Next on the list...more cleaning! We tackle the bathroom. The girls love to help.

I have more editing to do, and I realize I'm not going to get an article done that needs to be written by today. Guess I'll be doing that sometime today. I set the girls up with coloring.

Then they play with Uncle Tommy's feet while I make dinner.

Daddy is home...time for cuddles before bed.

Then we fly into sleep!

  1. Love this. How fun that Uncle Tommy was there to be part of it. :)

  2. Every night I tell myself I should wake up before my kids to start my day off right and then every morning I choose those extra few minutes of sleep. Someday... :)

  3. One 3-yr-old wears me out. I admire you! :)

  4. What cute little girls!!!! (And now I have a craving for Waffle House LOL!)

  5. For a moment I thought your daughter was drinking a coffee at Waffle House, but then I thought about it for a second and realized the waitress must have just put a lid on her cup.

  6. @ Diana, haha, no. Orange juice with a cap. That child needs coffee like I need a hole in the head.

  7. Having twins is not easy. Your girls are cute.

    My twin girls are 5 years old.
