The Family wakes at about 645 AM
then relax for about 15 minutes watching Sprout TV
I get breakfast ready for the family at this time
Eggs, toast, and sausage,
OR Pancakes, waffles
OR French toast
And on occassion cereal but this is usually more of a sack meal for them
I check diapers, if there is no POO I leave them on time after breakfast
After breakfast BATH time, and brush teeth, lotion with lavender cream, and get dressed.
THen we relax again wrapped in a blanket sesame street time
and while i clean up the kitchen, they watch the show and we all shout out letters and numbers.
After i clean up the mess, I give them a snack, of cereal, goldfish crackers, OR Fruit cups whcih you can just spread out on the table so she could pick at it.
I go around collecting laundry at this time,and making beds
then I put the dirty clothes in the laundry while they are strapped into the chairs
after that we, PLAY, and read, possibly color, whatever comes up for about an hour.
THen I sit them in a chair, and TV AGAIN for about 30 minutes
PBS CPTV Sprout TV NOGGIN, or a learning video
( My cable has free videos you can play like the potty video, brainy baby, animals, trucks so i don't need to pop in a DVD, but Baby einstein is great)
I sweep the floor up stairs, and get lunch ready
chicken nuggets, french fries, fish sticks, mac n cheese, pasta, soup, EASY MEALS
After that we clean up together while i sing the clean up song, change diapers, and I get them ready for a NAP,
WE read, and listen to music,while playing,
Then we TAke a NAP at about 1130-12
I just put them in the crib and pop a PACIFIER in their mouth,
and turn on the ocean sounds Aqua machine from fisher price
rub his head and cheek, and NOSE and don't talk -- I leave the room while he is still awake,
Mean time i move stuf from the washer to the dryer, and load up the washer again,
Fold the clothes, and put them away, Vaccum downstairs,
and MOP upstairs,
Clean 3 bathrooms, and then finally clean the kitchen AGAIN
HOPEFULLY I have about 1 hour to my self, and i watch my TIVO
Days of Our lives -Fast Fwd thru commercials because who has time to watch those.LOL
After that I put out a snack for my 12 year old who comes home at 245
At 3 the boys wake up and need a snack,
So All 3 snack together.
we clean up, and they play,usually outside for an hour
then around 430 HOMEWORK TIME
they come inside, And i turn on the TV AGAIN
sit them in chairs and sprout TV
While my 12 year old and i Argue over home work for the next 2 hours, While i ALSO prepare a Dinner
THen I make him read for another hour
sometimes to his brothers, if not then i read to all 3,
and on occasion alternate between the 3
My husband comes home at about 7 pm we eat dinner as a family,
and MY 12 year old helps clear the dishes,
while i load the dish washer,
Sometimes we watch a movie together,for an hour
BUt at 830 my 12 year old goes to bed,
And at 845 one of the little guys goes to bed, then at 9pm for the other one.
Then I finish cleaning up, and prepare my husbands work clothes fo rhte next day, and my 12 year olds uniform,
And finish folding the laundry while watching TV
