Where Does the Day Go?


I keep wondering where my day goes because it seems to go by so fast and then I end up getting nothing accomplished.  So I decided to write down my entire day to see where it went!  Baby #2 is a 9 month old baby I watch Monday through Friday from 730-430 and baby #1 is my 11 month old.  My 4 year old son does have preschool on 3 days so on those days he is not home from 8:30 to 11:30 and  every day is a little different, but this is what happened yesterday.  Sorry it is such a long post!

Woke up 7am.
4 year old downstairs by 705
Get coffee 710 and start 20 minute show for 4 year old so I can mentally prepare for my day.
725 baby # 2 arrives
730 baby #1 wakes up
730-8 hubby helps with kids and then off to work
730-750 play with babies, feed 4 year old, cook breakfast for myself and baby #1

940-1010 babies snack while I finish a craft I started with 4 year old when the babies "napped".
1010-1055 play with and entertain 3 kids, today this involved 3 booboos, keeping babies out of the 2 areas in the whole room they aren't allowed, keeping 4 year old from getting too excited and accidentally hurting babies, playing in the tent and tunnels, and changing drool covered clothes on the babies.
1055 put babies in stuff so I can pee
11-1110 prepare lunch while babies are content but halfway through babies start crying so I send the 4 year old to entertain which included yelling and running around (but the babies were entertained until I was done!)
1115-1135 kids eat and decide to have a screaming contest.  When I say screaming contest, I mean high pitched scream where they look at each other and laugh afterwards.

1250-115 clean up from lunch, breakfast, and craft and eat lunch while checking email and writing a quick note to my school learning team, put out dinner ingredients to thaw.
110 reheat coffee for 2nd time and hope I remember it this time!
115- check baby 1 video monitor because he's coughing and hope he stays asleep through it!
115-205 work on homework downloading books for the upcoming week, printing required info, ensuring the team assignment is broken down and update the team chat because I am team leader this week.

140-145 fix printer again because refusing to work
205- 225 Take a break and check Facebook, Link up to some link parties, and check out a few other blogs.  (This long of a nap break is very uncommon!)
