Day in the life of...


Caleb often comes home after work and asks me how my day was and what we did. I usually can tell him how the day went, but when I start thinking about what it was that we actually did I get stumped. What did I do all day? 

It starts out a little slow...and yes he's wearing Christmas pajamas...

 and yes I let her lay on my very unclean kitchen floor. 

 oatmeal for breakfast.

A candle is always burning.

 Elijah asks me everytime I'm at the kitchen sink, "what are doing?" I simply answer, I'm washing dishes...so that I can dry them, put them away, take them out again, so we can eat on them and I repeat it all over. 


And this is what I look out at while I do the never ending dish cycle.

We might have a random tickle fight on the bed that I just made.

 they're so sweet...and like Caleb said, if only it were in focus.

A good chance some baking will happen.

 Then the coveted nap time...I get to drink some tea and catch up on some reading...and maybe a nap myself.

 Then back to reality...

but the cool thing...I no longer have to go out of my house to do the laundry...I do it in my own laundry room...might be my favorite room in the house.

 We might need to get her some girly toys...she's been racing cars with her brother.



 Outside for some fresh air...



I love every moment with them (even the tough ones) 


She's in the habit of coming and hugging me randomingly throughout the day.

And the end is in sight...I just have to put Elijah back to bed about ten more times.

That pretty much somes it up...maybe a couple more dirty diapers...a little bit of discipling...storybook reading...cuddling...

sounds a lot like my life lol a boy and girl, toys, laundry (and my own laundry room finally as well!) playing outside, tickling is a must everyday activity, a little seseme street ABC's, dishes, cooking. How would I survive a real job and this life? I think it's a blessing to stay home with them :)

I always have a candle burning as well :-) love it!
Josie is in the habit of coming and saying "I Holdie Mama?" and that means she wants to be held, and usually involves a big squeeze - she pats my back and then runs her hands thru my hair!!! It is the most dear thing and makes all of the clouds disappear.... Oh how rewarding being a mama is!
Happy Weekend friend :-)

You have a beautiful family! Love the pic of little miss pushing big bro in the stroller. I feel for you that you have to hand wash dishes. I am never going to complain about loading and un-loading the dishwasher again!
