I wanted to do a little “A Day In The Life” with Keely being 12 months and me working from home part-time & in the office part-time.
5:15AM (4:30AM on office days) – Wake up call & Workout (I spend about 45 minute to an hour working out at home. Jogging on the treadmill, weights, yoga, Pilates or turbo fire)
6:30AM (5:30AM) – Shower time then emails & work time (if I am working from home)
8:00AM – Keely’s wake up call to me. I go into her room, ask her if she slept well and sing her a little song while changing her diaper.
8:15-8:30AM – We head downstairs to make and eat breakfast – yesterday it was pb pancakes, banana, blueberries and some maple cinnamon puffs (while I was getting it all together). She will also have a sippy cup of whole milk and one with water.
9:00AM – I get Keely all cleaned up and dressed for the day.
9:00AM-11:00AM – We play, play and play! We also read some books and chase the cats around the house.
11:30AM – We will have lunch together. Yesterday it was goldfish crackers (while I was prepping), sliced apple, sippy cup of water, pb sandwich and the rest of the pouch from Sunday.
Yes, she’s a diva!!
12:00PM-2:00PM – Keely takes a nap. This is a new nap schedule for us as she usually goes down at 10:30-11:00 but since she is getting up later, she isn’t tired that early. I know it will take time to get use to it but I think this will be the best one.
3:00PM – Snack & sippy cup of whole milk
2:00PM-4:30PM – Playtime
4:30PM-5:00PM – I or Bob prep dinner while the other one is getting Keely’s dinner together. Usually I will make her something that we are eating but these days, she is being a little picky.
5:30PM – I do the dishes (yes, I have a dishwasher but if there aren’t many dishes, I just do them) while Bob and Keely dance and play in the living room.
5:45PM-6:20PM – More playtime, but it’s more low-key as I don’t want her to get too hyper before bedtime.
6:25PM-6:30PM – Bath time. For some odd reason, she has become scared of the bath so tonight I am trying the shower to see if it’s any better.
6:40ish – She will have a bottle with milk (hoping to wean the bottle by the end of the month)
7:00PM – Bedtime
7:00PM-9:00PM – I clean up her toys, get things together for the next day, and spend the rest of the evening on the couch with Bob.
9:30PM – We are usually in bed, trying to fall asleep…yes, an early bedtime but hey, 4:30AM comes quickly and I need my beauty sleep.
So, that is our day in a nutshell. I have also starting to do some independent playtime so that she doesn’t rely on me or Bob to entertain her all day long. On the weekends, we go to Gymboree at 9am and she loves it. Once it’s nicer outside, we will take walks throughout the day and do some playdates.
Happy Tuesday!! Cheers!
Do you need a lot of sleep at night?
