6 Mom is up. Working out. Getting ready for the day because...
6:30 Felicity is up which means Daddy probably is too to give her a bottle while Mom gets a shower.
|Good morning, Bright Eyes!|
7:30 Miriam is definitely out of bed. All are being fed.
8 Dress 'em. Do their hairs. Try to convince them to make their beds...effective 10% of the time. Tim's heading out.
9 Felicity's morning nap. Leading directly to "Theme Time". It's G Week. Today is Goldilocks. They're going to LOOOOOOVE it! Then some TV time. Should probably send PBS a check so we're not total freeloaders.
|This is the new thing she does while watching TV. Huh.|
10:30 Fah-wiss (as Vivi calls her) is up.
11:30ish Lunch. During which they desperately circle their Mommy like starving puppies. Why does being hungry make them MORE hyper?
12:30 Get them OUTSIDE if at all possible. (When will this winter END?) More playing indoors.
|We only give our kids safe, educational toys.|
2 Felicity down for siesta dos.
2:45 Miriam is yelling from the confines of her parents' room where she's been mostly quietly reading and singing to herself. She's ready to be sprung from the Big House.
3 Snack. Just Mommy and Miriam most days. A very nice part of the day.
3:30 Felicity up.
4ish Vivian emerges. Who knows what we do from here until...
6 Tim is home (HURRAY!!). Supper.
|Very safe toys.|
7:45 Felicity to bed.
8:30 Big girls are in bed.
8:31 FREEDOM! (Said in best Dave Ramsey scream.)
10 Sarah is passed out on the couch. Tim is still working upstairs.
On repeat. Over and over. You know the drill.
