Warning, long post ahead!
But this is a blog about my life, so.
I had the day off of work today, and I resolved to use it as a catch-up, errand-running, baby-lovin' kind of day. Spoiler alert, I only got about half-way through my to-do list, but it was a grand day nonetheless. I'm going to do this thing here where I detail and document our schedule today and give you a peek into a day in the life of a mama bear and her baby bear.
My day usually starts around 6AM every morning (including weekends...) but Sloane let me sleep until 7:00 AM, bless her soul.
7:00 AM: Good morning Sloane! Nurse baby, play with baby
8:00 AM: Breakfast. Tofu and avocado for baby. Sauteed vegetables and a fried egg for mama.
8:30 AM: Play time
9:30 AM: Catch up on e-mails and skim headlines with a cup of coffee. I also had a piece of a lemon pie I made last night - I'll tell you more about that later.
10:00 AM: Prepare food for Sloane. I love this Babycook machine.
Also, wash dishes, fold laundry, get diaper bag and self ready to go out.
10:45 AM: Wake Sloane, change diaper, head out!
11:00 AM: Visit a thrift store. I visited Class and Trash for the first time and it kept our eyeballs fully occupied. Sloane was in awe.
12:15 PM: Return home, nurse baby.
12:30 PM: Lunch. Sweet potato sticks and peas for baby, chicken sweet potato curry (leftovers from dinner lat night) for mama.
1:30 PM: Clean baby up, playtime in the nursey
2:15PM: Outside time
3:00 PM: Nurse baby, then baby goes down for her afternoon nap.
3:30 PM: More laundry, cleaning, some work.
5:00 PM: Baby wakes
5:30 PM: Papa comes home!
6:00 PM: Cook dinner.
6:30 PM: Dinner. Mango and brown rice cereal for baby. Bacon fried rice for mama and papa (inspired by Shutterbean)
7:00 PM: Playtime and night time activities with baby.
8:00 PM: Baby's bedtime.
8:30 PM: A myriad of things, including spending some time with this book that I got in the mail today that I am really excited about. It's about the daily rituals of writers, composers, painters, poets, sculptors, filmmakers, scientists, etc. and "how they create (and avoid creating) their creations."
And there we are!
