A day in the life of

Are we running out of things to share?  Probably, so I'm sharing my typical day.  It may or may not be interesting, but just thought I would give you an insight.

5:00 a.m. Wake Up
5:45 a.m. Work out (2 mile run and weights/strength training)
6:50 a.m. Wake up Katie 
7:00 a.m. Feed Lillian
7:15 a.m. Feed Katie, brush her hair, normally Charlie wakes up by now and has breakfast too
7:45 a.m. See Katie off to school with Dad, fight with Charlie to eat his breakfast
8:15 a.m. I eat breakfast!!!
8:30 a.m. Make beds and start laundry
8:45 a.m. Play with Lillian and change Charlie's clothes
9:00 a.m. Finally, take a shower!!!
9:30 a.m. Charlie helps me vacuum and pick up around the house, Lillian is rolling all over the floor and destroying any folded laundry that is left in her path
10:00 a.m. Feed Lillian and put her down for a nap
10:30 a.m. Do some reading online, read with Charlie and play "Crash" with his cars, color or play the Wii
12:00 p.m. Charlie eats lunch
1:00   p.m. Lillian gets up and has a bottle
1:30   p.m.  Start putting stuff away, i.e. toys, left over lunch and stuff
2:00   p.m. Go pick up Katie from school
3:00   p.m.   Come  home, Katie does homework, I think about dinner
3:30   p.m. The kids play outside with the neighbors, Lillian takes another short nap
4:00   p.m.   Bobby comes home, kids still playing.  We ask about each other's days and he believes that I sit on my bum eating bon bons all day.  I think he's at work playing online all day. We kiss and laugh...because we know it's true. LOL!!!!Not!!!
4:30   p.m.     Lillian is awake, she eats, we all go out the front door and play or read and talk.  On a good day, we buy ice cream from the ice cream man.  Charlie hears him coming from miles away.  He once got in trouble for chasing the ice cream man all the way down the street.  Charlie loves the ice cream man!
6:00   p.m. Start dinner
6:30   p.m.     Eat...sometimes we eat at 7, depends on dinner and sometimes we eat earlier
7:00   p.m. Lillian eats again, has bathtime, and goes to bed!!!
7:30   p.m.  Kids get bathed
8:00   p.m. Bedtime snack and some t.v. time
8:30 -9:00 Kids are all in bed!
9:00 - 10:30 Dishes, a little t.v. time for grown ups, and bed
Anywhere between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Charlie will wake up because his back itches, he's cold, needs a drink, has to go to the bathroom, wants me to sleep with him in his bed.  And Lately,  Lillian will wake up and won't go back to bed until she has another bottle.  That girl is downing almost 40 oz of formula a day now!

Some deviations to my day will include, grocery shopping, playdates, and doctor appointments.  On those days, the entire schedule is screwed and I just go with the flow.

Then there are the days where I meet with my "lady" friends for girls night out.  Those are great days.

That's it.   One long day of my life.  Can not wait for all my kids to be in school.  If I'm still a SAHM, my days will be spent in bed.  Sleeping. Watching T.V. and eating Bon Bons :)
