I did this once before, but wanted to do an updated version. This is just a sample of a day on my life as a stay at home mom with 18 month old twin girls.
7:30- I jump in the shower while W changes diapers and brings the girls downstairs for breakfast.
7:45- I finish getting myself ready, put my pj's back on (one of the perks to being a SAHM) while W feeds the girls oats and oranges for breakfast.
8:00- I come downstairs and take over with breakfast.
8:10- The girls are done eating so I clean them up and bring them into the living room to play.
9:10- We head upstairs to get the girls dressed.
9:25- Lucy sees the iPad and requests to watch Elmo. I turn it on for them in our bed while I get dressed. She's not happy she has to share with her sister. Lucky for her, Clara loses interest quickly and goes to find toys to play with.
9:40- back downstairs for a quick snack before we leave. The snack gives me a chance to gather everything up to go while they're occupied.
10:00- We are loaded in the car and off to destination #1: Panera for a chai
10:25- We arrive at our actual destination: the library
10:25-11:10- we play at the library. We read books, play with puzzles, color, etc.
11:50- We lunch! Matzo ball soup and carrots followed up by some applesauce.
12:45- I cut some fabric for a quilt while they "help". This lasts about 20 minutes before I give up.
1:05- Quick snack of banana with peanut butter before nap. I rethink how "quick" a snack is when peanut butter is involved and begrudgingly clean up peanut butter from everywhere.
1:20- We head upstairs for a nap. We read a few stories and clean up their room.
1:35- Girls are down for their afternoon nap. I go downstairs and heat up some lunch since I didn't get enough when the girls were eating.
2:30- I lie down on the couch and fall asleep.
3:45- I wake up to the door closing and a baby over the monitor a few moments later. It's my FiL who had arrived and he offers to grab the baby. I slowly wake up while my FiL entertains Lucy.
3:55- Clara starts making noise over the monitor so my FiL grabs her too. The girls are happy to see and play with pop-pop
4:10- W arrives home.
4:20- the girls get an afternoon snack and then we all hang out together. My FiL is outside working on W's head light for his Prius.
5:00- The head light project is complete and my FiL leaves.
5:45- W works on dinner while I play with the girls. They're pretty grumpy at this time and require lots of attention.
6:45- It's clean up time in the living room before bedtime.
7:05- We all head upstairs. I start the tub and the girls play with W.
7:15- The girls join me in the tub. I wash Clara and then get out. W finishes bath time while I get dressed. I get PJ's ready and wait for the girls to help get them dressed.
