Yesterday (March 29), I participated in Ali Edwards annual Day in the Life.
I LOVE this project. Even if I did forget to document some stuff (like running clothes errands with Violet and what we ate), but as a whole I love it. It’s a glimpse into our day and what we did.
I posted majority of my photos onto Instagram with the caption as to what was going on. And then I just copied everything over just to make it easier. There are some photos without captions, but they just go along with the daily story as a whole.
8:46am | A rough start to this morning means sleeping in for me and the girls which went like this: Violet up around 4:30am puking, which meant doing some clean-up and helping her settle down again // Keith getting up around 5:30 for work and him not feeling well either // Me being so tired that I’m relieved that it’s Spring Break and we can all sleep in.
9am | Morning coffee with my Mom
9:15am | Of course the girls enjoyed the TimBits that Grandma brought.
10:05am | 3 over-flowing laundry baskets means that I’m washing all the bedding today and it will likely be 6-7 loads of laundry.
10:35am | While the girls are watching Paw Patrol on Netflix, I’m doing some catch-up in their journals.
11:50am | This little one is mad because I told her that she couldn’t join big sister in the tub.
12:18pm | Keith home early and sick from work. Thinking it’s possibly strep, but he hops into the tub and then bed for the next couple hours.
12:52pm | “I’m just gonna stretch them a little bit high.” Violet has this thing about stretching her socks to look like knee-highs.
2:22pm | Me and Violet ran some errands while Daddy (who was home early because he’s feeling sick) and Dominique nap. And now that we’re back home, time to switch the laundry again!
2:48pm | While everyone else naps, I’m working on catching up on journals and listening to past episodes of Stuff You Missed in History Class.
3:15pm | Naturally strawberry-lemon flavoured water! I find that this is one of the ways that I continue to drink water throughout the day.
4:39pm | Got Dominique up from her nap and she’s always insistent that she has to undo the diaper before I can put it on.
5:30pm | Love seeing Violet work on her spelling while waiting for supper.
7:30pm | The girls usually get a movie before bedtime and tonight’s choice was The Pirate Fairy.
11:55pm | Finally got home from my weekly Girls’ Night. I usually try to work on something creative when we get together. Most of the time it’s scrap booking, but today I opted for continuing work on Dominique’s journal. And now my bed is calling my name….
