My Day

{Prompted by Cocoa at Chocolate on my Cranium}
A typical day for me....

I usually wake up at 6:00-ish {after Steve has to poke and prod me to wake up} and I usually find Tim snuggled up next to me. Most of the time have no idea when he came in. But I like the snuggle time with him. Tim likes to play on his own. He has a great imaginations and can play for hours in a corner by himself, so the little extra time just with him is nice. I will wake up and read my scriptures, out loud, because Tim likes to hear me read the scriptures to him. {I can also hear Benji starting to wake up.}

After my own scripture and prayers, and a bit of time in the bathroom to get ready, I will then start getting breakfast ready. I am trying to be better about making breakfast for Steve before he leaves. Many of my breakfasts I will prep the night before so it's easier in the morning.

I will get Benji out of bed and get him a cup of milk and hold him for a bit until he is ready to run. At this time the boys will roll out of bed and then we will have family prayer before Steve leaves for the clinic.

Then I will start cleaning up and helping the boys get their chores done, and start prepping for school day.

While Benji eats I'll usually eat with him so he is not at the table by himself.

All of our morning prep is done between 7:00-9:00, and right at nine we start our school day.

From 9 to 1-ish we are doing our school work. I usually through a load of laundry in the washer and will pick up the school room while the boys are busy. It seems never ending to be picking up their room!! {they play sleep and school all in the same room}

After lunch the boys will finish up what ever is they need to do, and I will start dinner prep. I also do a clean up in the kitchen and try to find time to vacuum.

In the afternoon I will fold laundry while I have one boy read to me.

Benji goes down for a nap between 1-2 and I will send the boys in their room or outside to play.

At 3:30 I am back int he kitchen to really start dinner. Making dinner seems to take longer these days as I always have helpers. If they are taller than 3 feet it's a good help, if they are shorter than that I am usually pulling him off the table and out of the cupboard while I am trying to get dinner ready.

We eat at 5, or when Steve gets home.

After dinner we clean up the house, the boys usually have to clean up their room, so I will clean the kitchen and pick up the living room. And I will try to do any breakfast prep for the next day.

At 7:00 I will read a book to the boys and at 7:30 we have scripture reading and prayer as a family. The boys go to bed at 8:00.

I am a night person. I will watch a little TV, and be on the internet for a bit. I will also prep for school for the next day, and answer any emails that need to be answered.

I try to get to bed by 10:00... but usually it's more like 11:00 or 12:00.

Then I do it all again.

{But I can already feel that today is not a typical day.....}

I need to be a better wife in the breakfast area. I do make granola for my DH, but making breakfast each morning would be even better!
