Just Another Wednesday

Welcome to the March 2015 Carnival of Natural Parenting: Day in the Life

This post was written for inclusion in the monthly Carnival of Natural Parenting hosted by Hobo Mama and Code Name: Mama. This month our participants have given us a special glimpse into their everyday.


Welcome to a day in our lives! Today, as part of the Carnival of Natural Parenting, I’m sharing photos from every hour to show what a normal day is like in our house. This was pretty fun to do!

This particular Wednesday started at 5:45am with Banana deciding it was clearly no longer time to sleep. He’s been on an early waking kick this week. 5:45 isn’t too bad though (there was a day where he woke before 4am!). Now on with the pictures!

6am: Drinking my big ole cup of coffee. Mmm coffee.

7am: Girls are awake now and we’re drinking our purple smoothie breakfast.

8am: Rushing Peanut off to school. Today was wear a hat day for Dr. Seuss week.

9am: Reading books with Twig before we return them at the library. Wednesdays are library days.

10am: Got myself dressed and contemplated cutting my hair. It’s getting so long!

11am: Waiting for Peanut to get out of school.

12pm: Story time!

1pm: Back home and eating some lunch. Banana loves apples.

2pm: Nap time! Twig recently went back to napping and likes to hold onto my left arm. Twig nurses, of course. Peanut is in her room having an hour of quiet time.

3pm: With the two little ones asleep and Peanut finishing up quiet time, I actually get 10 minutes of alone time! Knitting, listening to The Half-blood Prince (re-reading them for the 6th or 7th time), and sneaking some poptarts.

4pm: Nekked baby crawling! Twig is still sleeping while Peanut and I try to “teach” Banana to crawl. He’s so close!

5pm: Twig is awake again and helping me put laundry away.

6pm: Eating dinner (leftovers night) while we start watching The Boxtrolls. Twig is sitting on the floor eating some cauliflower.

7pm: Still watching Boxtrolls and cuddling on the couch.

8pm: Bedtime! Actually at 8pm it was dark, but this is around 8:20 when I was sneaking out of the room.

9pm: What? More baby-free time?! Maybe this isn’t a normal day! Doing some dishes.

10pm: Getting Twig to potty (we just started night training) before I go to bed myself.

Well I hope you enjoyed a look at what our days are like. It’s always nice to see that the people we see on the internet are real. Show me yours!

  1. What are you knitting? Gorgeous yarn! I’m doing some arm warmers in a very similar yarn, but lighter.

  2. My daughter loves The Boxtrolls. It led onto a fascination with stop-motion animation. We made loads of short stop-motion clips on my phone with an app. πŸ™‚
    Love seeing your real, everyday life.

  6. Knitting and listening to the Half Blood Prince – that was me sometime last week! Thanks for sharing an insight into your day, I love the breakfast smoothies, we do these too especially in the summer! What’s in them to make them purple?

  7. Thanks for sharing your day in pictures! I, too, think it’s sometimes a little easier to get to know others when we see them living their lives. I really enjoyed going with you all through your day, what a nice day when you had some baby free time! πŸ™‚
