My husband went to see The Grizzlies play in Memphis today with his dude friends, so I thought I would take the opportunity to write down the details of my day. Just to see what it looks like. It was super exciting.
6:05: Husband wakes up and gets in the shower.
6:07: wakes me up with his loud showering.
6:08: check phone.
6:21: make husband feel guilty about leaving me for the day with a 9 month old.
7:02: go upstairs and make coffee and a bottle.
7:03: walk in Bennett’s room to find him sitting up waiting for someone to get him.
7:05: change diaper. (just pee!)
7:12: give B his bottle and watch the Today show. Inaugural coverage is on.
7:31: B finishes his bottle and I put him down to play with toys.
7:32: eat peanut butter Cheerios (incredible) and drink coffee.
8:05: make Bennett cereal with strawberries and bananas. It looks delicious.
8:10: feed B his cereal. He wants to feed himself which results in a giant mess all over him, myself, and the highchair tray.
8:32: put B down to play.
8:33: clean up breakfast disaster.
8:37: Bennett abandons toys to pull down all books from the coffee table–including the heavy ones.
8:50: diaper change. Really gross poop.
8:58: put down for a nap.
9:01: do 1 Peter bible study for Women’s group. So good already!
9:25: clean up the kitchen and dust the living and dining room. (don’t judge me for how long I spent on the Bible study.)
9:45: I hear Bennett talking in his bed. Going to ignore it and pray he goes back to sleep.
10:00: no more noise. Sit down to watch the inauguration.
10:15: talking again. Please go back to sleep!
10:26: no more talking…
10:37: talking again. I may give up soon.
10:43: gave up. Went to go make the bottle.
10:47: go in to find B laying down sucking his thumb–shoulda waited. Changed his diaper and put him in Grizzlies t-shirt as a peace offering for husband.
10:54: feed bottle and watching Obama’s speech.
11:09: play time!
11:29: decides he needs mama to join in on play time. Mama wants to watch Beyonce sing the national anthem.
11:40: B seems to be working out what seems to be a giant poop.
11:48: ate my lunch.
11:51: Brodie knocked Bennett over after he pulled his tail. Tears ensued.
11:54: changed “giant poop” diaper. My earlier observation was correct. Ran out of wipes in the middle of diaper change. Forced to use a grape scented boogie wipe.
12:04: back to play time
12:33: tried to each couch and laughing hysterically.
12:43: B ate lunch. Blueberries and sweet potatoes. Got in ears in somehow.
12:59: play time for B; clean up for Mama.
1:35: My mom called and asked if we wanted to come over. Gratefully accepted.
1:56: left for Grammy’s.
