Lately I seem to be posting a lot of pictures and very few... um WORDS. I guess it is because of my current life style, which involves lots of naps and nursing sessions. Because I want you to understand why I have nothing to write about, I am going to outline a typical day in Cakerwakerville.
John leaves for work at an absurd hour. So I never see him in the morning.
7:30 - I awaken to the sound of TWO babies babbling. Izzy sounds a little distressed, but Porgie sounds like she is having a really fun time in her crib. I get up, nurse Izzy and change his diaper. Then I change Porgie's diaper, make her breakfast, I eat something, and I usually feed Izzy some cheerios.
9:00 - Izzy has turned into the world's fussiest baby. He is whining and crying and just generally getting on my nerves. So, I take him back to his room and nurse him to sleep.
9:30 - I return to the living room to find that Porgie has pulled EVERY SINGLE toy from her toy box. Then she starts whining for me to open her box of blocks, so she can dump those on the floor too. We play with the blocks and toys for a little while. But then Porgie turns into the world's fussiest toddler. Time for a snack.
10:30 - I put on a Blue Clue's DVD and attempt to feed Porgie a snack. Within minutes I hear a little baby screeching in his crib. I run back to rescue Izzy from his crib, and then finish feeding Porgie her snack.
11:00 - I put Izzy in his highchair and attempt to feed him some squash. Things do not go well, and I end up with a distressed baby. Because eating food is torturous!
11:30 - I start making lunch for Porgie. I take the easiest route possible and make her some tofu and pasta (her favorite).
12:00 - I take both babies out onto the deck. Porgie plays in her sandbox, while I navigate food into her mouth. Izzy absentmindedly chews on a sand box shovel.
12:30 - I change Porgie's diaper, read her three stories, and put her to bed.
1:00 - Izzy and I watch a Baby Einstein DVD together. Sometimes I sneak onto the computer to check my email.
1:30 - I nurse Izzy to sleep.
2:00 - A break - FINALLY! I sit down, relax, eat lunch, and blog.
3:00 - Porgie has been awake for about 20 minutes, so I go get her. In the process, I manage to wake up Izzy.
3:30 - We play in the playroom or on the deck. Sometimes we go to the park. Sometimes we go to Target. Porgie usually eats a snack somewhere around this time too.
4:30 - Izzy wants to nurse. Sometimes he takes a third nap (yay!). But more often than not, he refuses his third nap.
5:00 - I call John and asked him when he'll be home. His answer usually pisses me off, and I end up hanging up on his. Yes, I am a BITCH.
5:30 - I start Porgie's dinner. If I am feeling really ambitious, I will attempt to feed Izzy again too. Doesn't happen too often.
6:00 - I feed Porgie dinner. John usually gets home around this time. Of course, we play that old game where we keep asking each other "what do you want for dinner?" This can go on for about an hour.
6:45 - We just decide to order in, and then take the kids for a quick walk around the block.
7:00 - We give the kids a bath and read 3 books. Porgie goes into her crib, while I nurse Izzy to sleep. Izzy goes into his crib, and I am home free!!!
8:00 - I put on my jammies, eat dinner, and relax. I usually blog, watch a little TV, and sometimes I even scrapbook. I am terribly behind on scrapbooking. I am only on the 9th month in Porgie's book, and I just started Izzy's book. In fact, I just got done putting in my ultrasound images!
10:30 - I go to bed. Sometimes I go to bed a little earlier, because Izzy still wakes up 2 or 3 times per night to nurse.
Are you still reading? Damn, that was boring! But that is my life, dear internet friends.
