A Photo an Hour: 17 Hours of a Stay-at-Home Mom
When your children are really little and you stay at home with them, you might have a fairly flexible schedule and the days can be a little unpredictable.
I thought it’d be fun to choose a day at random and take one photo every hour. I wasn’t sure exactly what I’d end up with, or even how the day would play out, but I thought I’d love seeing them all together.
It turned out to be a fun way to record some of the things we do during the day, and what my life is like right now with my little girls at home:
I’m greeted with this happy (sleepy!) face just after seven a.m.
A bit later, this little one wakes up, and we all head downstairs for some breakfast. I wish I looked this good in cow pajamas.
My husband bought this headband when he needed something pink to wear in a breast cancer 5K, and Ella wants to wear it EVERY DAY.
While Ani snoozes, I rake the leaves into a pile and Ella jumps into them while I read on the front porch.
Some gingersnaps for a quick snack while we wait for Ani to wake up. I dipped mine in whipped ricotta (not particularly recommended; I was just trying to finish up the ricotta before it went bad), while Ella took hers plain.
Who knew a wipe could be so entertaining? (I’ll admit – we were buying clearance Halloween candy at Target. Yum!).
Lunch time. I make lasagna grilled cheese sandwiches, which are one of my favorites. The girls eat deconstructed versions with cheese and bread and some pears.
Time to work while the girls do naps/quiet time. And, I’m just noticing I should probably change the background on my desktop.
“Is quiet time over yet? How much longer?”
When nap time is over, we’re out the door to visit the Life and Science Museum (it’s free once a week and my girls LOVE it).
Ani loves getting to crawl around at the museum. It’s a gorgeous fall day!
While I make dinner, the girls push their little bikes around the kitchen. I love that they are starting to play together – it’s just so cute.
Time to put this little one to bed.
While my pecan pie bars bake, I change into my pajamas and do a little more work.
I peek into Ella’s room to see her snoozing on the floor. Who needs a bed?
Bart does the last of the dishes (bless him!) while we visit about our day. Time for bed!
