Summer - Day One

So the summer has begun and as many of you know I have both kids for the summer, and in previous summers have gone a bit crazy. Working outside of the home has given me the structure I need to get up in the morning, get dressed and get myself and the kids out the door. Being a stay at home mom, I'm not so good at. So to all of you who do it every day, I salute you. Here it is almost 10:30 in the morning, I'm not dressed and neither are the kids. BUT...I have fed them, which is a BIG challenge for me...I would prefer to change diapers than have to figure out what to feed them...sad I know. Anyway here is my accomplishments for today, because I have heard from a very accomplished stay at home mom (Shelly, that is you)that it is better to make a list of what you have done as to a list of what I have not done. So here it is. I have worked out on the Wii Fit, but only two of the four sections because Ivy woke up. Got the trash out. Set up a Lego sorting system for Izaac. Delt with 5 Ivy melt downs. Made an Isabelle free play zone for Ivy (okay so I'm stretching it there a bit) and cut coupons. So needless to say, I need to work on my days, but this is only day one:) Wish me luck!


  1. Sounds like you did a lot! What a busy day!

  2. Coming from a SAHM, it sounds like you've done a whole lot! Much more than I get accomplished sometimes in an entire day!

    Enjoy your time off~ and it's OK to stay in your pjs every now and then!
