How my time is spent as a mommy

There are 24 hours in a day. This is how I spend mine.

30 minutes changing diapers

1 hour doing laundry

1 hour cooking dinner and cleaning up

1 and a half hours breastfeeding

1 hour a day cleaning up after little man

30 minutes feeding little man new and yummy things (he likes peas!)

30 minutes (or less) watching tv

4 to 5 hours playing with little man

2 hours carrying little man in the sling and walking (the mall counts as exercise, right?) - side note- why can I never spell exercise correctly? Thank the lord for spell check.

1 hour putting Dylan to bed - sometimes more

2 hours shopping for groceries, baby items and baby proofing supplies

30 minutes total putting Dylan in the car seat, and taking him out, putting back in, then taking him out, etc, etc.

30 minutes eating my own food. I try to eat slowly and enjoy my food, but there is sometimes no way to do this. Also, most of the time I have forgotten to eat the last meal and once I sit down to eat, I am starving.

2 hours hanging out alone with Jeff. This is golden time. Jeff and I get to sit and enjoy each other's company and not have Dylan around to distract us.

15 minutes getting ready. This includes shower, makeup, hair, and picking out and putting clothes on.

15 minutes getting Dylan ready. This includes picking out clothes and attempting to put them on him. Squirmy little stinker!

1 hour rocking Dylan and calming him after waking up in the middle of the night crying.

1 hour sitting in bed wishing I could fall back to sleep.

and Finally....

3.5 hours of actual sleep

Welcome to my life. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

I have been blessed. I thank the Lord for every minute I have as a mommy, because I know how quickly it can be taken from you.

Now I have to go because I am about to enjoy my 2 hours of alone time with Jeff. Adios!

  1. looks like a beautiful life!!

    btw..I think exercise is so hard to spell because if you take the first half away, you have size. That's why it's so easy to spell it wrong :)
