Ever wanted to know what it was like to be Kennedy for a day? Wonder no longer.
7:30 (ish) - time to wake up.
Having milk and checking the morning headlines in bed.
She spends a little time playing in her crib before we get up, put on a fresh diaper and head into the kitchen for breakfast.
Toddler brekkie: blueberry pancakes, berry medley, bananas, yogurt and milk.
Mommy brekkie: cereal and OJ mixed with super foods. Looks awful, tastes just like OJ. Promise.
"mah cak peese"
Translate: Mommy, when its convenient for you I would like some more pancakes, please.
9:00 (ish) - pop in the jogger for a little run/walk combo around the neighborhood. Surprise! Today its freaking freezing outside.
After our neighborhood stroll we come back, get dressed and play a little before dirtying the first outfit of the day. On this particular day she was playing with some new toys. One is a little holder for the iPhone and the other is her shopping cart. She can play independently while I get dressed, straighten up the house and get ready for the day's activities.
"eyes. eyes. eyes. eyes."
Toddler lunch: tri-color pasta with butternut squash, apple sauce, green beans and milk.
Mommy lunch: Chic-fil-a
Catching a snooze in the car on the way home.
2:30 (ish) - Naptime. Or on some days its more like "baby plays quietly in her crib" time.
No nap today, just hanging out in her crib.
Time for Mommy to do a little sewing.
4:00 (ish) - Snack time. Either we play at home or run errands in the afternoon. This day we headed to Nordstrom for the half-yearly sale and picked up a new pair of trainers for Kennedy.
Snack on the go: milk and a carrot/mango squeezie pack.
6:00 (ish) - Time for dinner. On this night, Greg was working late, so it was just us girls. Kennedy ate while we watched a little Baby Einstein sign language.
Toddler dinner: mac'n'cheese with broccoli (and chicken, shhh), green beans, corn and milk.
6:30 - post dinner we play around the house, pick up from the day and start to unwind for the evening. Normally, Greg helps pick up while I keep Kennedy entertained, but on this day, I was on my own.
Really into baby dolls right now.
Ooh, the Lilly Resort catalog is out. Don't mind if I do.
If the gate wasn't up she would be in the dishwasher.
7:30 - Time to get ready for bed. We do bath, brush teeth and read a story every night. We're creatures of habit and we try not to break routine unless we absolutely have to.
Cleaning the toofins.
Time for Mommy to pour a glass of wine and make a nutritiously balanced dinner: grilled cheese and sweet potato fries.
