A Day in the Life Part I

I got this idea from my friend Alicia. I wanted to document what a typical weekday is like for us, and then in a couple of weeks we'll document a typical weekend day. I think this is something we'll look back on one day and be so glad to just remember the little things from everyday life.

On a typical day, John gets up around 5:15 to go workout (at least that's what time his alarm goes off----the number of times he snoozes depends on the day :) ).


I get up around 6, get ready, make lunches, and pack up for the day. Around 7 John goes in and wakes Harvey up and gets him ready to go to "work".

We get to work around 7:30 and it's breakfast time for all of us. Then after breakfast is play time. Today Harv started play time
with a bang----literally.

He fell and hit his eye on a shelf. Poor kid. Monday's are tough.

Poor Sam. Wearing a "Cute Little GIrl" bib while Harvey tries to shove a Santa hat on him. It's tough being little.

Around 9 little Sam goes down for his morning nap and I do art with the big kids. I had the cat take these photos, so try not to judge the quality of the setup here. :)

The final products. Today we worked on our shapes. Obviously.



After art we went up to the playroom to play. And cry. And play dress up. While crying.

The first of many crying fits. I soon realized (uhhh after 30 minutes of crying) that perhaps he had a bit of a headache after his collision earlier in the morning. I gave him some Motrin and voila! Tantrum free.

Harvey vs The Laptop. Stupid thing wouldn't do what he wanted. So he threw it.

Then gave it a few kicks for good measure. Taught that laptop a real lesson.

Post Motrin playtime.

This photo cracks me up. She's dressed in a fairy costume, with and apron around her waist and a firefighter coat on top. Then she used a temper tantrum to really help pull the whole look together. Priceless.

Captain Harv.




Sam wakes up around 11 and we go back downstairs to play until lunch time at noon.

Some lunch time shenanigans. They thought I wasn't paying attention because I was taking photos. False.


DSC_0242
I made them trade cups back immediately after this photo. Maybe next time kiddos.




After lunch we clean up, do diapers then it's off to nap time. They love to march up the stairs chanting "Go, go, go!! Up, up, up!!"
