In this post, I’m sharing what a fully remote “day in the life” looks like with kindergartner and three year old twins. It’s probably as it sounds; chaotic.
Some days are easier than others, but for the most part, we have found our groove over the past few weeks.
6:45am: I still try to wake up by this time [the latest] so I can get my oldest can have enough time to get ready before her remote session.
After, the kiddos wake up, they will usually play or color for a bit before breakfast.
7:15am: Make my coffee and relax for a bit.
7:30am: Breakfast for the kiddos.
8:15am: Clean up the kitchen from breakfast and tidy anything else in the house.
8:45am: Remote Session begins.While my oldest is doing her remote session, I typically let the twins play with play-doh since it keeps them preoccupied for quite some time.9:30am: Snack break for my oldest.
10:00am: Remote session resumes.10:30am: Speech remote session (only Tuesdays and Fridays).
11:00am: My oldest is done with her morning portion of remote work. The kiddos will play or dance to music before we do lunch. This also gives me time to get my workout in while they are staying busy.
11:30am: Workout.12:30pm: Lunch time.
1:00pm: If the weather allows, (taking 40 degrees and up) the kiddos will play outside after lunch for a bit before my oldest has her afternoon arts session.
1:40pm: Arts remote session.2:00pm: After her Arts session is over, we’ll work on any assignments we have to do for her class.
2:30pm: Quiet time.This usually consists of a second snack, reading stories or even watching a movie. Oh and of course more coffee. 😉
3:30pm: I like to do a craft at this time to get their brain working. This helps them to stay awake until bedtime, otherwise they would fall asleep at around 4:30pm with how dark it gets outside. 5:15pm: Dinner time
Hope y’all enjoyed this “day in the life” post, nothing too crazy as this is reality [most] everyday.
If you have kiddos in school, how are you handling it this year?
