I get up at 1:00 to feed baby.
Patrick gets up at 3:30 to sooth toddler.
I get up at 6 to feed baby, get toddler out of crib. 7 year old wakes up. Breakfast starting. I drink cold coffee, so as to expedite the process of getting caffeinated.
Everyone eats. Usually, cereal, oatmeal, yogurt/fruit/granola, bread and cheese, a banana. 5.5 year old get up. Kids play, do homework, get dressed. Sometimes a bath in the morning, if we were too rushed/tired the night before.
We pack lunches and snacks. At 8:30 7 and 5.5 year olds get on the bus for school.
Toddler plays, baby naps. I work on school stuff. Patrick does dishes/laundry or plays with toddler.
Nap for toddler. I go into the office.
At 4:00 older boys off the bus. Mad rush for snack, play in the backyard. Dinner.
At 7:00 everyone starts going to bed.
At 9:30 lights out for us.
And it all starts over.
There is some variance, but that’s how we do it.
