Soooo…. Ummmmm….. Well…… You see……. I forgot to write down the crazy stuff this time around. I know, I know! I was doing so well, too! LOL

So since I forgot I thought I would pick a random day this week and walk you through my day. The day I picked was Monday!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

4 am

The Hubby wakes me up. Time to get up and take him, Jacob and Jacob’s friend TJ to work. (We have sort of adopted TJ. He’s been living with us for the past 6 or 7 months.)

Back from dropping off the guys. Time to eat breakfast and set out the kids’ school work for the day.

Call my BFF and talk for a while.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I start waking the kids up. Well, Joshua has been awake since 5. He likes to get up early and get started on his school work.

Colin starts to have a COMPLETE and TOTAL meltdown!!!!

He doesn’t want to get up.

He doesn’t want to have school!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

8:30

Colin is still freaking out. Now he’s major issue is that I asked Joshua to make breakfast. Colin can’t eat breakfast unless *I* make it for him.

SIGH……..

Where’s the Advil Migraine????

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

9 am

Yep. Colin is still throwing a hissy fit.

Heaven help me.

The other Cailey is attempting to start her school work.

Time to remind Deanna to GET OUT OF BED!!!!!

Everyone is finally doing their school work!!! WOW!!!

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

12 Noon

Time for lunch.

Colin can’t decide what he wants.

No, we are NOT going to McDonald’s.

He still can’t decide. He wants me to name off every single thing we have in the house to eat.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1 pm

Everyone has been fed, even Colin.

Time for Cailey and Colin to do their history, geography, science and nature lessons together.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1:05 pm

Colin, put the Lego guy down and listen please.

No, we can’t blow stuff up.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1:10 pm

Colin, I will listen to your dream when I am done reading this part of the book to you.

(And it goes on like this for the next hour and 20 minutes.)

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2:30 pm

YIPPPEEEE!!!! The school day is OVER!!! LOL

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

2:35 pm

No, Colin. You can’t climb onto the roof.

Yes, you can go out to play.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

3 pm

Time to start supper.

Colin’s computer hour starts.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Time to pick the guys up from work.

Cailey’s computer hour starts. (It’s great to have older kids that HAVE to babysit. ;))

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

5 pm

Time to eat!

Colin doesn’t want what we are having (chili) and wants me to once again name everything we have in the house.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

6 pm

Cailey and Colin fight over the computer even though they have both already had their hour today.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

At several times throughout the day I had to fuss at Joshua for teasing the Cs. SIGH……..

 

Now, not everyday is like this, thank goodness!!! But Mondays are almost always awful. TGIF!!!! LOL

 

(And Deanna never wants to get up before 9:30.)

 

Yesterday was a good day. We went shopping. Cailey and Colin needed new shoes and they both got the BRIGHTEST shoes they could find!! LOL  Cailey’s rainbow neon and Colin’s are neon orange and yellow! Completely day glow!😉

  1. Happy Birthday to your dad.

    I have one in my house who causes more of the drama than the other. Now I know who has that honor in your house.

    Loved the look at your day!

  2. Note to self, spell check when you aren’t so tired!! GOOD GRIEF!!!!!

  3. You are one very busy lady, my friend! I like what you said though about working on the blog during commercials—LOL I do that, too!

  4. Happy Birthday to your dad!
    Hey, I have a Colin at my house! His name is Jonah. They could be Monday twins.
    Brightly colored shoes remind me of Spring. Bring it on!

  5. I’m exhausted just reading about it! Sometimes I miss those days, but…I have to admit I’m kind of glad to have them behind me. You are a strong and resourceful mama!

  6. whew lady, you need a big box of chocolate and a box of calgon after that day!
    When we homeschooled we were up and at it by 8 most days some days 9. Jesse and I, Joey would sleep until 10 and be done by lunch or 1 at the latest. Jesse took longer, he is dysgraphic, and Chris, well….he was a meltdown waiting to happen every second of the day.
    But enjoy these days, one day you’ll miss them. I do. We have an empty nest and I miss those crazy homeschool days.

    • Oh, I know! I am trying to relax and enjoy every second of it. I know I will not do well with an empty nest. I was a mess when just one of them moved out! LOL I’ll be one of those crazy ladies that dresses up the cats and takes them for rides in a stroller!😉

  7. Wow that was a full day!! Mom and teacher. 2 full time jobs!
