My Day with Three Children

I know it wasn’t that long ago that shared what my day was like and I had a number of comments on the size and “cuteness” of my dishwasher. Well ladies, I’ve since upgraded and added to our family so I thought for anyone wondering about life with three children, I’d share what a typical day is like around here.

Day’s like today where the little girl I baby-sit comes (Mon-Wed-Fri) I am up by 6:30am at the latest. Or 5am, when Gauge thinks its playtime. And then he falls back to sleep at 6:30am on the dot I swear.

The day must start with coffee.

On days when the little girl comes, I must also tackle my hair. It would really help if I didn’t go to bed with wet hair.

We moved at the end of October (2013) right before Gauge was born and into a house with a real dishwasher. I run this thing at least twice a day, more if it means I don’t have to do dishes by hand.

The source of a lot of trouble and frustration for me. Two bedrooms and our playroom are here in the basement, which as you can see we can’t use. The noise can be a pain, along with the people coming and going all day long.
Oh, my laundry is in the basement too.

Dirty diapers. Ewww. Unfinished basement floor too.

Into the wash the diapers go, out of the dryer this comes.

Do you see the mess my lovely children left for me?

Such a happy boy. Got to have some playtime too.

Got to stuff and put those diapers away for use later.

If I don’t throw something into the slow cooker (because I forgot too) then Hubby and I usually make supper together.
Delicious meatballs, glazed carrots and rice.

I love seeing my three children playing together. There are two year, two months and two days between Austin and Brookland. Two years, six months between Brookland and Gauge. Always someone to play with.

Oh look, more laundry. With 5 of us, two little girls that like to change their clothes every few minutes, and a baby that spits up on himself and me, I do a lot of laundry.

And in there somewhere, a few stolen minutes at a time I try to fit in blogging and school. By far the biggest challenge has been to let somethings go. Sometimes the dishes and/or laundry at piled high, but I’ve gotten a lot of snuggles and playtime. Of course there is breakfast, baths, hair brushing battles in there too. All part of the best job I’ve ever had.
