12 in 30
Welcome to the 30 in 30 challenge! Each day this month I'll be posting a response to a prompt. You can find all the questions here. I stole the questions from here.
Describe a typical day in your current life.
The alarm goes off at 6:45am but most mornings I'm up before that. The first thing I do each morning is pump on one side for about 15 minutes. While I'm doing that, Jarrod usually gets Wesley up and changed. He brings Wesley in and I feed him. Once Wesley is done eating, it's a mad dash to get ready and get out the door. I shower, eat breakfast, make lunch, clean house, get ready, and am out the door by 7:50am or so. I drive to work and arrive by 8:30am. Some days I go to the office and some days I have meetings elsewhere. Regardless, I work until about 5pm and then drive home. If I'm in the office I work frantically, eating lunch at my desk, pumping 3 times, and try and squeeze in a lot of things while I'm there. If I'm out of the office I'm usually driving for several hours, meeting, eating, and driving. Of course pumping several times.
I arrive home sometime before 6pm. I snuggle and play with Wesley, we all eat dinner, and we have family time. Wesley gets a bath around 7pm and we read stories or play before bed. He goes down by 7:30pm. I usually go for a walk after he's gone to bed. By 8:45pm Jarrod and I are clean and snuggled on the couch for a TV show before bed. Usually we divide the chores - washing diapers, cleaning dishes, packing Wesley's backpack, etc. before we go to bed. We get Wesley changed into his nighttime diaper at 10pm and sometimes I'll feed him again. By 11pm I'm asleep resting up to do it all over again!
