MAMA | THE LITTLE LADY

THINGS I DO WITH MY TODDLER EVERYDAY

October 5, 2016

I was recently interviewed by friend Corri from Glitter and Bubblesas a Rad Mom. In the interview one of the questions she asked me was, “Give us a glimpse into the timeline of an average day from the time you wakeup until you go to bed.”

I was completely trumped by this question because my instinctive response was “It’s complete chaos until one of us falls asleep.” And that used to be true, but it’s not anymore, and it was a great reminder to wake up everyday and be grateful for where my family is now and to make the most of it. Ever since this interview and making this schedule I noticed we have had easier and happier days together.

An average day for us at home looks like this:

8:00-8:30Wake Up

8:30-9:30Breakfast for Lila (yogurt and fruit) while she watches Elmo or Sofia the First. During this hour I do most of my daily workload.

9:30-10:30I do circuits of walking/jogging/sprinting with Lila in the jogger

10:30-11:30Lunchtime. We will either stop by the market on our jog and get fresh fish or chicken, if not we keep a well stocked fridge of choices.

11:30-12:30I give Lila an after lunch bath and get her into jammies.

12:30 – 3:30 *ideally* Lila takes a nap while I do computer work finishing anything that didn’t get done in the morning.

3:30 – 5:30Afternoon walk and outdoor play.

5:30 – 6:30Dinnertime. I make dinner while Lila plays with her toys and a show plays, then we eat dinner together.

6:30 – 7:30Playtime in Lila’s room.

7:30 – 8:30I give Lila a bath, put her jammies, and get her to sleep for the night.

8:30 – 10:30During this time I catch up on any work I wasn’t able to get done during nap time, and this is when my husband gets home from work. Once he gets home we have our nightly “Netflix & Snacks” and catch each either up on our days.
