A Day in the Life

woke up to a hungry baby and nursed in bed
made old fashioned oatmeal with peaches and cinnamon
negotiated with my two-year old to just try a peach
watched a glass bowl hit the floor and smash to pieces
counted to ten and took a few deep breaths
told my daughter I didn't want to see her right now
sent "bad girl" to her room
cleaned up oatmeal, peaches, and glass
heard a tiny voice say, "Sorry, mommy.  Love you, mommy."
felt marginally better
answered a call from my BFF in Colorado

got all three of us ready and out the door by 9:45 am
held CJV and entertained NHV during a newborn hearing screen

shopped for groceries with little one snoozing in the Ergo
answered endless questions from a curious toddler

got all three of us back in the house
made lunch
nursed a very hungry little one
unpacked and put away six bags of groceries

turned on Sesame Street right at noon
cleaned up the kitchen

put both girls down for a nap
visited with a *good friend
worked on the newsletter for my moms' group

changed a diaper (or two or three)
nursed a still snoozy newborn
ate a snack ... yogurt and granola

gave a snack to NHV ... raisins
convinced toddler to ditch the diaper and use the potty
cleaned up a pile of poopie from the floor

played stacking cups and pegs and puzzles

hid from daddy when he got home

ate a delicious dinner - thanks to my *good friend
nursed ... again
watched Wheel of Fortune and solved every puzzle
enjoyed goofy playtime with CPV and Natalie

overheard daddy say, "Your presence is required in the living room.  We have toys to pick up."

to which Natalie replied, "I open-ing presents?"

checked email ... considered Twitter
typed this post

nursed ... again ... and enjoyed the sleep grins of a milk drunk baby
watched Grey's Anatomy
went to bed

Sorry your day started off so crummy, but glad it picked up! Hope tomorrow starts off fabulous and stays that way - all day long!!!

What a busy day...tell me again why I'm trying so hard to have another one??? Just kidding, I know you wouldn't change a thing. You are such an amazing, Mommy, Dana!

Yikes. I'm trying not to think about what my days are going to be like come July... but you did a nice job of showing the balance of highs and lows, so I'll try not to despair!

i'm impressed that you were able to stay awake for grey's anatomy! i have no idea how you do it with two....i just have one (almost exactly the same age as yours)and don't know what i would do with another one running around! :)

I just joined twitter yesterday for the survivor game...oh boy! I don't have a clue what I am doing on there yet.

Happy Friday!

Sorry I laughed at you when I read about the poop on the floor....

and Doesn't the craziness melt away when you're staring at your milk drunk?
