For me, we start the day at 8am, with breaky, then i jump in here and see what is going on for the day and do anything that i need to, then get a shower sometime before 11am, which is lunchtime for the kiddies. Jorja to kindy at 12, dash to the shop if i need anything, then home for Bj to have a sleep (he is trying to cut this out, so if i don't come home before 1 he won't sleep, then i am stuck with a little grump all arvo), lunch while Bj sleeps, then back for J at 3pm. Do any shopping i missed earlier, then home to argue with 'i'm hungry' and 'i just want to watch abc kids'! lol!! Tea at 6pm, kids to bed at 8, then peace and quiet, and time to scrap!! Smile

Always pop in a few times a day!

My day, on my way to get the kids their milo I turn the puter on. Get milos, then load up my usual daily pages including SBT50. Get kids toast/cereal. Check the usual things while the kis eat. Also get bedsmade and get dressed while they are eating.
Get boys dressed and clean up from brekky. Look to see about dinner prep and play with the kidsd while I get various house stuff done like washing. Go out if I need to.
Then it's lunch. Eli goes for a sleep and Brians usually home if he's worked.
I'll go scrap while Eli's asleep and Ethans playing and sleeping with Brian.
Then get kids arvo snack, get washing in, play, dinner prep. Check puter stuff.
Dinner, boys showers, play and bed. Clean up toys and make sure house is sorted.
Then I sit and hook and watch tv.

That's a typical day for me.

I'm a newbie to the forums but an addict Very Happy I love pressing the "view posts since last visit button". Usually do so 2-3 times a day.

So i had 13 months maternity leave. Now i usually work 2-4 days a week. Other days i'm a stay at home mum. Work days ,i'm a Radiographer so a work day is so variable. Never know how many patients i will have and what tests i will have to do on them.

A personal joke between h2b and i is my nickname: the "zap n scrap mum".This should explain why:

1-3am: Maddy wakes up sometime then for comfort/breastfeed
6am: My alarm goes of. I get up and Dwight gets up to get Maddy ready for me while i get ready myself.
7am: In the car, drop Maddy at MIL or friend's house.
8am: Arrive at work, warm up CT machine, Xray machine, bone density etc
8-12:30: inject, Scan, xray, mammograms, bone denisty scans, etc. Sometimes quiet for a while then all of a sudden really busy Very Happy
12:30-2:00 Try and duck out to get something to eat.
2pm- Finish work around 2, then drive to pick up Maddy.
3:30- Home again, put Maddy down for afternoon sleep.

Won't bore you with anymore time frames. But after she wakes, its the usually dinner, bath, bed routine. Then we cook and eat and clean up.
I usually try and fit in some scrapping and blog surfing, catch up with h2b.
Usually not into bed before midnight.

Morning: COFFEE and smoke for me!!! milo and brekky for the kiddies, then its getting ready for school, leave for school between 8-9 depends on if were walking or not. Back home after checking mail paying bills etc, another coffee, washing/dishes usually first followed by a quick mad dash to clean the house so i can get to the outside work... gardening, mowing playing with turtle (well chasing him around anyway), lunch turtle's nap time im either back outside or having a rest lol, get kids from school, prepare tea, back outside, back inside, hopefully bed for the kids then i clean again (after its looked like another bomb for the day has gone through) then scrap bed etc
That is my usual day well.... something like that anyway (apart from mon sat and sun lol)

Most of my days are a blur from one to the next but a ruff day would be.....
Wake up at 7:30am/8:00 depending on how many times I turn the alarm on snooze LOL!
Dress and feed the boys breakfast
8:45am bus arrives to pick Joshua up for school and then Noah and I walk next door to have coffee/tea with our darling neighbours
9:30 home to do housework....make beds, dishes, laundry, floors, ect....
During this time I also like to turn the computer on and check out a few things
12:00 Lunch
afternoons are my time with Noah, crafting, playing etc....
3:15pm bus drops Joshua off from school, snacktime
4:00pm reading, speech therapy with Joshua (if I have not said before Joshua has Down Syndrome and doesn't really talk, but he is trying and we do sign language to make his communication a little easier)
5:00pm prepare dinner and bathtime/shower
8:00pm bed time for kids
9:00pm anything from watching a little TV, spending time with hubby, reading, scrapping or simply crashing in bed.

Post by Tygrays on Tue Nov 16, 2010 1:00 pm

Hmmm I tried to reply to this from my phone but it didn't work **sob**

Anywhoos... a typical day for me...

5.30 - 6am woken by kids, try to stay in bed and pretend I'm still asleep
6.30am Rouse out of bed at to yell at kids to keep the noise down and tell them to turn the playstation off...
6.45am - back out of bed tot ell the kids to turn tv down
7am - give up and get up for breakfast
7.15am, remind kids that 2 weetbix does not require 3 tsp of sugar and 1 litre of milk in one bowl
7.20am wipe up spilt milk from said bowl
7.30am tell kids they have to eat all that is in their bowl - too bad if they've got too much milk they can drink it
7.35am empty out excess milk from bowls that have been left forlorn on the bench
7.40 yell to kids to start having their showers before school and get them to start making their lunches up
7.40 and 42 seconds - Kahli's complaining that we don't ahve any nutella to put in her lunch - I point to the vegemite and tell her to be Australian...
7.41 Find towels for said showers as it's too hard for them to open the cupboard at the bathroom door for kids to retrieve their own towels.
7.43 - Nathan leaves for work, grumbling that he's going to be late...
7.55 - tell Kahli that she'll have to use boys shampoo if she's ran out because she didn't tell me she had ran out
8am - yell at kids to get ready to go to school...
8.10 remember that Dom still hasn't had a nappy change yet and get to that... Remembering to stretch Dom's feet out after the nappy change...
8.15 put nappies in machine and wash them
8.20 final call for school run
8.30 ask Aleks what's taking so long... find out he's lost his shoes (AGAIN!!!)
8.35 Still on a mad rush to find Aleks shoes...
8.36 Aleks remembers he hasn't made his lunch yet
8.37 find Aleks show under his bed - with dirty socks still inside **pheeeew**
8.40 tell Aleks he's putting his shoes on in the car and that he's got to hurry up making that sandwich!!!
8.42, strap Dommy into said car, and referee Kahli and William who are fighting over who is sitting where in the car
8.43 Tell William to toughen up when he comes to dob on Kahli calling him a name
8.43 and 36 seconds Tell Kahli to toughen up after her dobbing on William being mean
8.44 Remind Aleks the school bell goes at 8.45 and he's got to get out the door into the car
8.44 and 33 seconds Aleks into car and locking the back door.
8.45 Go back into the house to re-check the front door is locked - nope, Nathan left it unlocked when he went to work this morning - again!
8.46 put roller door up and start car
8.46 and 54 seconds - ask kids to quit fighting
8.48 After carefully steering my vehicle of mass corruption through the streets we finally arrive at school and the kids evacuate - after William advises us he's had a but blowout and leaves the noxious gas in the car **phew**
8.50am Arrive back home - green and gaggin from the noxious gas that came from my sons body... Pull into the carport and get out of vehicle... release Dommy from his car seat and get back into the house. I realise I've not had breakfast yet - go to the weetbix box to find only crumbs there *augh* then decide coffee and toast will do... Empty bread box and there's no milk left!!!! Put Dommy abck in car and head to shops to get more bread, weetbix and milk...

Do you want me to continue??? ROFL My day's hmmm full on could be an apt description ROFL

My days vary with times but the day to day things still are the same.
Get up and shower around 7am-7.30am, usually have Jay and Rani in there with me. Get out and dress myself and the kids. Give the kids breakfast and if Bradie is still asleep I'll have breakfast, otherwise I feed him them myself.
Clean up table and load dishwasher, start if needed. Depending on the weather either let the kids outside or they play inside. Make beds, put on washing, maybe a bit of ironing if needed. Kids come inside for their 'I wanna hot drink muuuum', and sit and watch the Fairies (god I hate the fairies) or the Wiggles.
Back outside to play. Bradie to bed if not already down. Bit more housework or play with the kids. Get lunch for the kids, put Rani to bed if she hasn't already told me she wants to go to bed. Clean up lunch dishes, empty dishwasher if needed. May a 'megastructure' or build a train track with Jay. Probably feed Bradie again and let Jay have a little play with him before he goes back to bed. There is usually more washing done and brought in and folded and put away, start a new ironing pile. Think about what's for dinner, start getting it ready. Get Rani up and feed her if she went to bed without lunch. Back outside for another play and I usually feed Bradie outside so I can watch the kids. Put Bradie back to bed, cook dinner, have dinner, clean up, baths, play, storied, bed, clean up table and sink, dinner dishes, load dishwasher, bath Bradie, feed, clean up toys and other crap, usually crawl intio bed sometime around 11pm. On a good night Braide sleeps til about 8am on a bad night he'll wake for a feed around 4am-5am.
Pretty much every day is like this including weekends, except Mondays we have swimming for Jay and Rani at 9am then mothers group and Tuesday we have our other mothers group in the morning. Wednesday Jay and Rani go to creche and I do the things I can't do with 3 kids in tow.
In between all of the above I change nappies, wipe bottoms and faces, with different clothes Smile, feed Bradie about 6 times, I think, sweep, mop, vacuum and in the odd event I get a little time to myself I might make and embellie for one of the swaps or think about a lo which may or may not get started. I honestly dont know how some of you get time to scrap or get on the computer as much as you do, I usually get on here via my phone when I'm feeding and dont often get time to comment on things. Better get back into things, off to MIL's for tea so need to pack creche bags for tomorrow and get the kids bathed and pj'd.
