The last time a shared a “day in the life” post was almost a year ago.
Today I am sharing what a fall “day in the life” looks like with a hybrid kindergartner and [almost three year old] twins. 6:45am: I try to wake up by this time [the latest] so I can get my oldest ready for school which starts at 8:15am. She is typically already awake and dressed for school.
7:00am: She’ll brush her teeth (with the twins) then make her bed. After, the kiddos will usually play, read or color for a bit before breakfast.
7:15am: Make my coffee and relax for a bit. 7:25am: Breakfast.
Sometimes I get fancy and make muffins (typically Fridays).8:00am: Their dad comes to pick up my oldest and drops her off at school (for 8:15am) on his way to work. This has worked so well for us and makes getting her ready for school a bit easier.
10:40am: Head out to pick up my oldest.11:00am: Play in the little field area across school for a bit before we head back home.
11:45am: Lunch time.
1:30pm-3:00pm: Live remote learning session plus school assignments. Sometimes the twins will nap during this time, which helps. For the most part, if they happen to be awake, they’ll watch a show quietly in the living room.
3:00pm: Snack, outdoor play and “school ends” for the day. If the weather isn’t so great, we’ll typically do crafts or play-doh.5:00pm: Dinner time.
6:00pm: Begin working on my night routine.My nighttime routine really hasn’t changed since last year except the kids are usually in bed now between 7:30 and 7:45pm.My oldest also picks out her clothes the night before. It’s bittersweet to see her grow and become more independent.
