Life Today

Starting at 5:00 am.....
Nurse, burp, bum change, wrap baby up & put back in bed
Crawl myself back into bed
Just as I started to fall back asleep, Thing 2 cries.  Her Pull-Up is wet
Crawl back into bed
Asleep for a few minutes when baby cries
Decide to give up for the moment and bring her into my bed for a snuggle {shhh, don't tell - it's my guilty pleasure}
Thing 1 & Thing 2 arrive a few minutes later
We all watch a wonderful episode of Bubble Guppies in my room
Quickly make breakfast for Thing 1 & Thing 2 while baby is sleeping
Nurse, burp, change blowout
Have to stop halfway through feeding time to get Thing 2 to the potty {by the way, there really is something to the whole "wait until they're ready thing" when it comes to potty training.....who knew?}
Get Thing 1 & Thing 2 dressed, teeth brushed, and hair did while baby chills happily on the floor
Wrap baby back up for nap time
Transfer milk from bottles in the fridge to bags in the freezer
Wash bottles
Clean up breakfast
Look at the clock and realize I have 40 minutes to shower & get myself ready before baby is going to want to eat again
Run to the shower before something or someone else diverts my attention
Force myself to shower quickly instead of just stand there and soak in the momentary quiet
Just as mascarra is being applied, baby cries {good timing}
Nurse, burp, bum change
Feeding interrupted again to take Thing 2 to the potty, again {that kid does NOT have good timing}
Put baby in the swing for some awake time
Make lunch for Thing 1 & Thing 2
Clean 3 containers of leftovers out of the fridge {gross - I rarely let things sit for more than 2 days in the fridge, and this was a reminder why} 
Load dishwasher
Start a load of way-too-piled-up laundry
Move baby who is starting to doze off to her crib
Get distracted and quickly clean both toilets and take out all garbage cans
Checked email
Interrupted while blogging to clean up mess in the bathroom by Thing 2 who did what I like to call "shot the gap", when they pee & it gets between the seat and the bowl, thus getting everywhere......lovely
And here I am at 1:20 pm
And I feel as if I have accomplished NOTHING today!!!

Congrats on the shower, the scrubbed toilets, cleaning out the fridge, and three happy little snuggly things! :) I loved reading through this. :)

Sounds so familiar--except add another child to the mix. I feel like somedays my kids watch too much tv so I can get things done but I never have anything to show for it.

Those sound just like my days!

Holy smokes, I feel exhausted just reading that! Don't you just love Bubble Guppies? I have those songs stuck in my head all day! :)
