A Typical Day

Today at Kelly' Korner the topic for "Show us Your Life" is to share what a typical day is like for you. First of all, there is never a "typical" day at our house..lol. My children continue to amaze me on a daily basis. I never know what is in store for me from one day to another. The only thing they do every day that is routine is that they wake up between 9 and 10am and never a minute sooner! That is about the only thing that I can count on! During the day I try to give them things to do like color and paint etc, but at two and three, nothing keeps their attention long. This is what they prefer to do..........

they would rather play in the toilet

or take their clothes off a gazillion times a day (this has been a big problem lately) obviously nothing has changed much since this post!

or find new ways to climb into Brennan's crib

010

or pull the ottoman over to the dvd player and push every button in sight

014

or some how sneak our huge fake palm tree plant into their bed..lol..

Yes, these are the "typical" things that they would prefer to do on any given day! I do try to get them out of the house at least a couple of times a week even if it is just to go to Target. We also like to have playdates and we actually had two this week so that helps the day go by faster. We used to have a very strict nap time but since the kids sleep in so late, they have not been napping as much. I do however make them stay in their rooms and rest for at least an hour, trust me, it is good for my sanity, what little I have left..lol! The upside to no nap is that they are totally worn out by the end of the day and they go to bed early!! Before bed we ALWAYS rock in the rocking chair, read books and sing a few songs and of course say our prayers.

That's about it for a typical day at my house. I am sorry it is not more exciting! I am sure you ALL are so jealous..hehe! We are so eager for the summer to get here so we can go to the pool and play outside! Please summer get here SOON!

Having kids never gives us a boring day for sure. Love it. :)

Sounds a lot like our typical day! Morgan is in school 3 days a week now so that helps plus I work 2 days a week (saves my sanity)! On the days I'm at home all day, I sometimes feel a little crazy! :)

I love hearing about your day!!! The kids sure make it fun and never a dull moment!!! Have a wonderful weekend.

My kids and your kids would get along nicely. You know what they did today? Instead of coming straight in my room when they woke up - earlier than usual - they went into the kitchen and stood on a chair and got a huge bag of candy off of the top shelf in the pantry. I woke up to them climbing in my bed with chocolate all over their faces, and found at least 40 candy wrappers on the floor.

Mine also, especially Camryn, have started taking off their clothes as often as possible. It's driving me crazy!

Never a dull moment!!

Lindsay said...

Too funny, I think each picture is worth about 1,000 words! haha

Amy said...

Your two remind me of mine! I miss the days we could sleep in a little rather than drag everyone out of bed and take kids to school!

They are absolutely adorable! Crazy fun times!:)

Brandi said...

Sounds like my days! Always getting into something. I just received Addison't MJ clothes I ordered from the Hammond Bay collection....way cute!!!! Happy weekend!!!!

Hi! So glad to read your comment on my blog. Your kids are too cute. I love little kids in glasses! =) I think that our kids would get into a lot of trouble if we put them together. Oh, and my daughter went through a phase where she would always take her clothes off and want to be naked. Its finally better now...after some duct tape usage! Now my son doesn't want to take his clothes off. He may be seen in the same shirt for days. Anyway, thanks for the message and I look forward to getting to know you in the blog world!!!

Heather said...

This made me laugh!! Playing in the toilet is hilarious! We never really have a typical day either, and have to realize that's ok! Hope you have a great weekend!

Niki said...

Hi Lesli! Thanks for your sweet comment! I LOVE your blog and your post about your typical day is hilarious...those pictures were great! SOO relatable :) I'm with you on the nap...even if they don't sleep they have to be in their room for a bit so I (and they) can have some "down time". Such adorable kids you have :)
