I will have to be honest; there really isn’t an average day in this house.
We rarely have two days the same. Having two of our children being terrible sleepers, it is completely unpredictable on when or how our day begins. Mini has occasionally woken at 1am – for the day. Occasionally the pair of them will tag team, one night Mini will sleep until 4 am and Baby will wake, there is no two the same.
We have started bed transfer with Baby Red, but she’s often back in our bed between midnight and 3. We keep telling ourselves it isn’t forever. Surely not?
Mondays and Fridays have a little more routine, but I guess routine will get better once Mini begins school in September.
Mondays I tend to do group admin, I try and do a lot of networking which people don’t see, contacting various places raising as much awareness as I can, it is tireless; at times I feel as though I am speaking to myself.
Anything Majorette related I add in, but often that leaks in somewhere daily, particularly recently when we were organising a fun day.
Feeding Baby Red endless amounts of breast milk, making sure she doesn’t come to harm’s way, she goes overboard with her adventuring sometimes.
Providing I’m organised enough I can get dinner started before the Mr arrives home.
