So, here is a typical day in our house.....just add diaper changes multiple times a day, lots of clean ups, crying at several points, a little whining, some laughing and smiles and its what life looks like with 4 small kids in our house:
6:00 - all of the kids wake up
6:15 - 6:40 Cartoon (usually Dora) while I read my Bible
6:40 - 7:20 breakfast and I am picking up the house, etc.
7:25 - 8:00 getting the kids new diapers, clothed and lotioned for the day
8:05 - 8:40 kids play in the play area while I am getting ready
8:45 - 9:15 Blanket time (kids sit on their own blanket and play with toys and rotate blankets every 10 min. or so) I am usually feeding Piper during this time.
9:20 - 10:00 Snacktime and coloring time at the table
10:05 - 11:25 playtime inside and outside
11:30 - noon lunch
12:05 - 12:30 cleanup from lunch, diaper changes
12:40 Take the kids up for nap/quiet time and read a story
1:00 - 3:30 Nap/quiet time, I get things done around the house and spend time with Piper
3:40 Kids come down from nap time
3:45 - 4:20 play outside
4:25 - 5:00 play inside
5:00 - 5:30 cartoon time while I prepare dinner
5:35 - 6:15 Dinner time
6:20 - 7:00 family play time
7:05 - 7:30 Bathtime and getting ready for bed
7:35 - 7:40 Storytime for bed
7:45 - 8:00 Kids go up to bed and we do our nightime prayer/singing routine
After that Piper usually goes to sleep with one final feeding, Tim and I spend some time and then the day is done!
The Lord is good and gracious to us in helping us all to adjust to all the changes!
