Monday’s! I’m sure I’m not the only mother out there that finds Mondays the hardest or really busy…
We usually begin our Mondays around 5an as my toddler hasn’t mastered the sleeping in part yet, we have brekky Lorenzo watches cartoons well I get ready for work, once I’m ready I get Lorenzo ready and pack our bags for the day.
We get in the car and usually out the door by 7 ish but today I started at 7am so it was a 6am out the door kind of morning. On Mondays & Tuesday’s lorenzo goes to my parents rather daycare so it’s cost effective for us. Once I’ve done the drop off I’m off to work.
I work full-time as a educator and my sifts are between 7:30am to 5:30pm in those time frames.
My morning started off a little different than usual with myself trying to help a roaster who was clearly lost. Then once that was done it was time to work!
By 9:30 ish it’s my 10 minutes for morning tea before it’s back working with the kids.
When it was lunch time I was very ready for a nap, my lunch breaks are aways 40 minutes, then of course it’s back working with the kids, I’m not going to get into detail what I do in my job as it’s obvious to keep all that confidential between where I work only which I’m sure most of you will understand.
This afternoon wasn’t my usual routine but I thought I would document it anyway, I had to leave work early to make a mad rush to the hospital for my OB appointment for a scan and check up on jellybean number two.
Arrived at the hospital at 3:12 for a 4pm appointment which was good because everyone knows parking and then getting to the area of hospital you need is a nightmare sometimes.
Saw the baby and it was moving around and has long legs just like it’s brother and daddy. Then it was time to get back into the car and go pick up lorenzo from my parents house.
Once picked up we headed home to begin our crazy night routine. By the time we got home it was 5:30pm and I had missed the window to walk zues our pet dog, I take the dog for walks every afternoon just him and me which is our bonding time I like to say.
But unfortunately because of the hospital trip he missed out on a walk today. And I had to begin on dinner straight away.
Once dinner was done and dusted it was bath time which is Lorenzos favourite time.
After bath time we get in our PJs and sit in Lorenzo’s room hubby and I with our son and have about 10-15 minutes of play followed by a book of his choice to read.
By 7:30pm our son is tucked into bed kissed goodnight by both hubby and I every night we both make sure we both are tucking him into bed and making him feel loved and safe.
After our son’s in bed I have a shower and get into my PJs and honestly just become lazy and just chill until my bedtime which is always around 8:30-9pm.. I didn’t get into detail about my mummy routine at night as I’ve already been working on that in a separate blog so make sure you stay tuned.
