A Day in the Life

7:30a- I wake up with a start wondering where Cupcake is and how it got so late. Then I feel her snuggled up beside me. It is only about 30 degrees this morning, so I appreciate my cute heat pack. I also super appreciate that she’s still asleep!


I’m really hoping all this extra sleep is a sign she’s on her way to recovery from being so sick! This is so unlike her. Usually she’s up for the day at 5:30. Enjoying the peace and quiet of this morning, but wishing she were in her crib so I could go do something! That’s my hardest momming battle- I feel like I should use every second she’s asleep to clean/cook/etc. I’m glad I’m forced to slow down and relax this morning!





8:20a- She’s awake! Yay! I love that sleepy-eyed look!


8:40a- Cupcake eats breakfast. She tried oatmeal for the first time yesterday and is in love! It’s nice to see her appetite returning after being so sick last week!

9a- Cupcake plays while I eat breakfast and have my tea.


10a- We head to the grocery store! Cupcake loves grocery shopping and today a sweet elderly lady took a liking for her. We walked around the store together, which made the trip longer, but more enjoyable. Using a bajillion coupons, I manage to get all of our groceries for the week for less than $70!!! That includes some delicious kale and organic apples for Cupcake.

11:15a- Get home. Unpack groceries. Call credit union to confirm that I did officially pay off my car (waaaay ahead of time! Go me!) Cupcake is definitely sleepy, but not quite ready for her nap so I let her play quietly while I attend to some chores and eat lunch.

12:15p- I nurse her and she falls asleep around 12:30. I switch around the laundry and start cleaning. In order to keep myself scheduled, I have assigned a chore per day to focus on. Monday=Mop Day. I sweep and mop the kitchen, dining room, living room and bathroom. Cupcake magically wakes up as soon as I put away the mop… Which is both perfect timing and annoying.

Anyone else own this? Cupcake does not seem entirely thrilled by it. I try to show her how to use it, but overall, I think she finds it boring. Also, it has a terrifying laugh that sounds straight out of a scary movie. Not my favorite toy ever, that’s for sure!





3:30p- Hubby gets an amazing interview offer for his residency!!! Cupcake and I celebrate by her watching me chop peppers for Daddy’s favorite dinner (lazy stuffed peppers).

4p- I decided to go for a run. Cupcake loves going for a run so much she falls asleep right away!

We get home, I shower and then finish supper.

5:15p- Hubby gets home and we eat an early dinner. To celebrate getting an interview offer, we head to the grocery store to find a yummy dessert. I can’t eat dairy still, so while he gets an M&M cookie sandwich, I get chips and guacamole! We sit and watch Jeopardy while Cupcake plays.


8p- We brush both of Cupcake’s teeth, read her a book, and get her ready for bed. She falls asleep.

8:30p- I realize that I’m starting to feel kind of unwell and fear I’m getting sick. I decide to tuck myself in bed early and pray Cupcake stays asleep.

10:30p- Cupcake wakes up. I nurse her and she falls back asleep. I fall asleep around 11! Whew, am I beat!
