My Typical Day - Show Us Your Life

At Kelly's Korner it's Show Us Your Life - Typical Days

I thought I'd join in today.

  • Alarm goes off at 5:50 a.m.
  • I get up get myself ready (make-up, hair, dress, etc..)
  • Get Kynlie up and dressed
  • Finish packing her bag for Heathers (food, diapers, wipes, sometimes toys, etc...)
  • Throw on shoes (by this time we are running late)
  • Speed over to Heather's
  • Get mad because I'm behind a slow diesel or school bus
  • Then I remember to breath and take it slow. Life is too short to be in the fast lane
  • Get to Heathers at 7:00, unload, give kisses good-bye
  • Head to Wal-Mart to pick up my car pool friends/co-workers
  • Get to work at 8:00
  • Have breakfast with my friends at work
  • Start work at 8:30
  • Look at the clock every hour wishing it was 5:00 and I was headed home to my baby
  • Go to lunch from 12-1
  • Back at my desk, doing work, reading blogs, checking emails, answering phones, etc...
  • 4:00 start cleaning the office (lazy people at work can't pick up after them selves so it takes almost an hour to clean)
  • Leave a 5:00
  • Pick Kynlie up at 6:00
  • Go home
  • Figure out what's for dinner or if I'm lucky Brad got home before me and has taken care of it. (which happens a lot!)
  • Eat (while watching our shows...reality T.V.) While eating we also learn how to count (Kyn not me HA)
  • Bath - Me and Kynlie. Another time we are learning colors and counting
  • Finish watching my shows, while Kynlie plays in the living room and makes me laugh hysterically because she's a silly girl
  • Put Kyn to bed between 8:30 and 9:00 (She probably needs an earlier bed time seeing she's 18 months (today) and needs more than 9 hours of sleep, but seeing I don't get to see her until 6:00 p.m. I would like more time with her, so she stays up later)
  • I lay down a little after 9:00, 9:30 to watch the news and fall a sleep

That's it! My lovely daily schedule. I'm so ready for a change. I need more hours in the day I can spend with my daughter. Being gone 11 hours is not fair. So from 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to say 9:00 p.m., I cherish those hours.

Oh what I would do to be a SAHM (stay at home mom) or work in the school district and have teacher hours. You guys are so lucky! Hey, I'll even take working in my home town just to get home an hours sooner...

Your little girl is adorable! I teach Special Ed so I am away from my little girl all day too. It stinks! We live for weekends too :)

You are a great mom and you inspire me. Hang in there, I hope you get to be a SAHM someday very soon. Thanks for sharing your days with us!

Aww! It's understandable why you'd want to keep that little precious girl up later to spend more time with her. You are doing a great job and just remember its about quality not quantity time.
