I’m Ashlee and Im the author of A Blended Momma (website and blog). I am relatively new to the blogging world as a blogger but as a reader I’m a professional 😄 I think this post is a great idea as I to believe that not every mom is the same, not at all actually. So I am here to let you in on just a snapshot of a day in the Life of me! #thismum
My weekdays and weekends vary as I’m sure they do a lot of you but I’ll give you the most repetitive one. So I start most of my days my cracking open my eyes around 530am-545 about 10 mins after I’m EVERY morning my smallest child, Paislee (age 2 1/2) comes running to me and wants to lay with me on the couch and watch cartoons until it’s time for the others to wake up. This is mine and her special bonding time and it’s one of my favorite times.
Then at 6am I go and wake my 7 year old daughter up, Madison. I wake her up a tad bit earlier because she already takes the longest to get ready, and then I get myself and Pay dressed.
At 630am I wake my Bonus son up as he is normally ready on 5-10mins haha. My husband usually gets up at this time too unless he has a job going on and in that case he is up and gone long before me.
We leave the house dressed, bookbag in hand to go up to the end of the main road where the bus stop is (We live about a mile down a dirt road that connects to the main road). The bus is usually there within 10mins at most, as they head off to school me and Pay drive back home. I feed her (other 2 eat breakfast at school) finish getting ready and double check her bag and then I walk her over to my mother in laws house who lives next door.
I go to work at this time it’s usually around 730-745 and I get there at 8. I do data entry and office work at an appraisal service.
Anyway I leave there a few mins before 12 as I have to get Paislee so my mother in law can go to work. I pick her up and we eat lunch then she goes for a nap. Some days I nap with her but those days are very few.
Usually I take this time to clean up, do laundry, blog, or prepare food to be ready at supper..
She wakes up usually after an hour or two and we relax usually or run errands until 330 at which time it’s back to the bus stop.
This is when things get hectic. We drive the mile ride home and there is NONSTOP talking from both kids. We get in the door they eat a snack and go straight to homework, which normally I have to spend approx 15 min each helping with issues, signing test papers, listening to them read ect.
Then after both of them are settled they know that after homework they have to empty their bags, pick their clothes out for the next day, get their lunchboxs ready if they want to take their lunch, and change clothes. While they do this I finish supper.
By the time they finish that its normally supper time. And normally the time my husband gets home. He always showers as soon as he gets home and then eats.
After we eat it’s normally around 6ish the kids always want to play outside, next door, or just watch tv at this time and I totally agree.haha
At 730 it’s bathtime and at 8 it’s bedtime or atleast lay down time. I usually shower during this time. They usually are all passed out by 9-930. When they pass out that’s when I have to finish up left over laundry and clean up the kitchen and any other messes. Once I’m done with that I usually go hang out in the shop with my husband if he’s out there or blog. (We are both night owls)
So this is basically a glismp in the Life of Me on a typical day with no issues or dramas!lol
