Day in the Life | April 10-on-10

This month’s Confidence Workshop teacher Blog Circle theme is a day in the life. This year I have been trying to capture a day in the life each month with my 10-on-10 personal project. For April, I decided to combine the two. Make sure after you’re done reading you follow the link to another amazing workshop teacher to see her day in the life. See how others have interpreted it and decided to show their day in the life!

Each day at 7:30 I wake the kids up. While I often wish (okay, everyday) that I could let them sleep in and continue enjoying my coffee alone, I know that letting them sleep in means risking the rest of the day. Lately, I wake up Sawyer first, and take her into Milo’s room. He’s been requesting her in his crib so that they can be “two monkies jumping on the bed.”

The kitchen counter is a big deal in my house. If I’m in the kitchen, they are too, on the counter. Luckily we have a big counter. Typically we have oatmeal, but while making sandwiches for lunch the kids wanted toast. And yes, that is my 3 year old holding a knife.

The park was PACKED! Sunny day during spring break means everyone is outside. It was amazing seeing how much Sawyer has grown and how different she is then Milo was at her age. She is fearless (I was nervous the entire time she was on the play structures) attempting everything her big brother was doing. In fact, I heard one mom say to her son “See, honey, that baby is doing it. You can too.” Poor kid. If only she knew how many bruises were hiding beneath Sawyer’s pants. But the big triumph was Milo swinging on a big boy swing for the first time! He kept saying “go faster!”

Once home the kids were into the dirt and rocks. It takes miracles and bribing to go from the car to the house without making a stop at the rock pile. (Yes, Milo is putting rocks into Sawyer’s golf bag.)

With both kids down napping, it was time for ME! I decided to grab a diet Coke, the baby monitor, a pad of paper and a pen, and sit out in the sunshine! However, Sawyer had other plans as my outside time didn’t last long.

After finally getting her to sleep, it was time to wake her up. She was so sleepy and took a while to wake up. Of course, I had to exploit this opportunity and take a picture. Doesn’t she look so sweet?

It was back outside after dinner where the boys were working on burying Sadie’s invisible fence wire. Milo only lasted a few minutes before his dump truck called his name. Of course, Derek didn’t last long either as taking the kids to the park sounded like much more fun.

So, for the second time, we packed up the kids and headed to the park.

My favorite moment was when the kids playing on the bouncy bridge. Milo was a little nervous the first time, but then they had fun running back and forth. Even Derek joined in the fun. With the sun setting behind them, I couldn’t help but snap a photo for my last image of the day.
