A little snapshot of a mommy-ing day…
We either go to the gym so I can take the 8:30am spin class or we just hang out downstairs in the AM before K’s first nap so I can drink some COFFEE. K eats breakfast and then just plays while I clean up in the kitchen or catch up on e-mails. Or if I am being honest, some days I just scroll through some instagram stories and try to wake up… ha.
K usually goes down for a nap between 930 and 10 so then I make some breakfast and usually do some exciting laundry! But now that it is finally nice out I have been doing random yard work, which I actually love.
breakfast: egg and cheese sandwich with a side of a messy living room.
If we have errands to run that day we go when K gets up from his first nap.
If not we just play at home while I try to get some things done around the house. K has lunch but then also wants to eat whatever I am eating for lunch all. the.time.
K naps again around 3pm. Sometimes I’ll prep dinner during this time so I am not rushing around later.
J and I have been trying to clean up the diet because, well, summer. I made this casserole with grilled chicken and a bunch of veggies I had. I stirred in some low fat ricotta cheese and then threw in a bunch of random spices (I think paprika, onion salt seasoning, and Italian seasoning). I topped it with just a touch of mozzarella cheese. I thought it was so good! It reminded me of this broccoli & cheese Ritz cracker dish that my mom makes which is just SINFUL. SO this was a healthy sub.
K goes to bed around 7 or 8 and then I usually just relax unless I didn’t get too much done during the day. Mommying is exhausting! This age is so fun with K but man I am tired at night.
Not the most exciting days sometimes, but that is real life right?
