I’m back with another A Day In The Life Of… It’s a chance for other bloggers to share what a typical day looks like for them. I’m proper nosey and I love to see what people get up to in their day. It’s also a great chance for you to find some more blogs that you might like to follow…
Today we have Jade from Mummies Waiting, a mummy to two girls, aged 2 and 3.
Let’s see what a typical day looks like for her…
07.00: I wake up and get washed and dressed.
07.30: I get the girls up, give them breakfast and get them dressed
08.00: While the girls are eating I attempt to put some make up on and do my hair. I hate having a mum bun and plan not to every day, but it always ends up happening.
08.15: I make sure the bag is packed ready to go and start getting shoes and coats on. (Oh how I love the easiness of summer!)
09.00: We are usually sitting at the train station hoping that our train is not delayed or cancelled again. The girls love to watch the freight trains leave so they’re either really occupied or we are learning something new, to date the biggest amount of freight carriages that we have seen at the station was 117. If they are occupied, I can grab my phone and make some notes and check on my social media for the blog for a few minutes.
09.30-12.00: This is our morning activity time. On a Monday, Saturday and Sunday we get out the tuff tray board game or a craft, if the girls are immersed I will leave them to it and get some tidying or blog work done, if not I will sit with them and talk about everything answering questions while they learn. On Tuesday and Wednesday we go to a toddler group, the girls play with their friends while I get the chance to catch up with the adults. On a Thursday and Friday we spend that time travelling, the girls sit with their tablets (Kairi is really into programming games at the moment and its wonderful to see Naminé figure out how to make technology work). While the girls are occupies, I will get my IPad and bullet journal out and work on my blog.
12.00-14.00: Some times within these 2 hours we will have lunch, this usually depends on how hungry we are and what time we get in, the girls will play with toys and we have some downtime where they will usually nap. While its quiet I will grab my phone and catch up on social media and also complete any short blog tasks.
14.00-18.00: During this time we have our afternoon activity. On a Monday, Saturday and Sunday we will usually continue with whatever we had started in the morning. Tuesday and Wednesday we will get out our work books and do a paper based activity or learning game such as learning phonics. Thursday the girls get to play with their cousins and I go off to run the local Youth Group for a few hours, by the time I am home, they are in bed asleep. Friday we go run a parent and toddler group, the girls play and I spend time getting to know people then we come home and the play with their toys.
18.00: We start to finish off what we are doing and pack the toys away.
18.20: I start dinner, I prep everything I can and then time it for when my husband comes home.
19.15: Once Ryan is home we all sit down and eat dinner together. The girls tell him all about their day and he tells us about his. We discuss what everyone has learnt today and talk about what we are planning on doing tomorrow.
20.00-22.00: Around 20:00 we have finished dinner so we get our pyjamas on and sit down in the front room finally with the television on. I use this time to have a final blog and social media catch up. The girls tell us when they are tired so we take them upstairs, brush their teeth, feed them and read them a story before the go to sleep.
22.00-23.00: Myself and Ryan will also start to settle down ready for bed.
23.00: We sleep, usually with an average on 8 wake ups.
