Hey, guys! Today I thought it would be fun to share a Day In The Life post to give you a little glimpse of what my days look like (on days that I’m not working.) Obviously, no day will be the same, especially with a three year old in the mix. This is what my Tuesday looked like! As of tomorrow, he will be 3 years 5 months old.
7:20 AM I get woken up abruptly when I hear “Mommy, Mommy!” on the baby monitor next to my head.
7:23 AM I head upstairs and go get him from his room and then we go back downstairs together. We say “hi” to Daddy who was already up.
7:25 AM I get him a sippy cup of milk and let him watch a show on TV.
7:45 AM I make Jamison a bowl of Pumpkin Chia Seed Oatmeal
