Instead of showing you what a day in my life is like during the summer (it's blissfully boring!), I thought I'd share what an average day in my life is like during the school year.
5:30 (yes, 5:30 in the morning!!) I haven't used an alarm clock in six years. My kiddos are usually up between 5 and 5:30 every day (weekends included). They are content to eat cereal and toast while they catch up on their Disney Junior shows.
6:00 I make lunches for myself and the kidlets. Around this time, I usually find a minute to eat breakfast, down a cup of coffee, and check out Facebook, Pinterest, and my favorite blogs.
7:00 I get a blissful twenty minutes to myself to shower. I joke with my colleagues that this is usually the time that I come up with all of my best ideas; I've even considered keeping an Expo marker in there so I can jot down my thoughts!
8:00 Time to drop the kids off at daycare. We are lucky to have an UH-mazing home daycare provider who takes exceptional care of our little ones. She loves them, and they love her in return!
8:30 As soon as I arrive at work, I drop my things off in my classroom and go right to SpurDog's room to catch up and gossip.
9:00 Kiddos arrive in my classroom, and my day "officially" starts! The day moves at a crazy clip, and it's over before I know it!
3:50 Once my students leave for the day, I tidy up a bit, make copies for the next day, and race out the door to pick up my own little ones.
4:30 Inevitably, everyone is starving when they get home from work, school, and daycare, so I usually start making dinner right away. Iowa Girl Eats is, hands down, my favorite go-to for quick, easy, and healthy recipes for the whole family.
6:00 After dinner, we either take a family bike ride (when the weather is nice), or I squeeze in a quick run.
7:00 Bath, PJs, and story time. Deedle has developed the charming habit of coming out of his room at least a half dozen times to tell me "one more thing." It's exhausting.
8:00 Once the kiddos are down for the night, I do a little school work for the next day. Then, I pour myself a glass of Barefoot Pinot Grigio, turn on Bravo, and turn my brain off for the rest of the evening.
9:30 Since my kids wake up so doggone early, I head to bed nice and early so I can get up and do it all over again!
So, that's my day, in a nutshell!
Oooh! I almost forgot! I just bought this amazing blog template from Dreamlike Magic Designs, and I am so, so excited to see it installed!
