So how does a SuperMom spend her day?
6:00 am – Get up with the boys to get them ready for school. Ok, realistically it’s 6:10. I snooze my alarm. And I am only getting one boy up. By 6:00 Jake is up, dressed, eaten at least two breakfasts, checked his e-mail and Facebook, caught up on all the sports news and scores known to man and played six hands of computer solitare. I get Jon up and fix his breakfast while he steals another wink or two/watches anime on his Itouch.
6:30 am – I see the boys off…then go back to bed for 45 minutes. (For the last eight weeks, while Jake wasn’t able to drive due to his shoulder, at this time I would drive them to school. In my PJ’s.)
7:15 am – My alarm goes off to get up to get ready for work. And yes, I snooze it. I need an alarm without a snooze button.
7:25 am – Get up for the last time and get Alex out of bed. Make her breakfast, kiss Brian goodbye for work, and get Alex and I ready to leave.
8:20 am – Drop Alex off at school.
8:30 am – 5:00 pm – Go to work and office manage. Text various members of my family to organize the rest of my night.
5:25 pm – get home from work.
5:30 pm – get home. Reminder #1 for Jon to start his homework
5:30 – 8:30 pm – this varies from one day to the next. Two to three times a week I tell Brian goodbye again before he leaves for his second job. Could be a meeting. Could be sports practice. Could be a game. Could be running errands. If I’m lucky, I start dinner. Oh…and keep following up on the homework.
8:30 pm – start bedtime routine…tell Jake good night (since he goes to bed no later than 8:30. He’d make a great farmer.), baths (or – the argument on who takes their bath first), bedtime snack, teeth brushed, cats fed, meds taken…
9:30 pm – hopefully Alex is in bed and Jon is on his way. Most likely not.
10:00 pm – Kids finally in bed.
10:01 pm – Start cleaning up from the day. Dishes done, laundry folded, living room, bedrooms and bathrooms picked up and straightened, lunches made for the day.
11:15 pm – Take my own shower.
11:40 pm – ME TIME!
11:45 pm – fall asleep on the couch….
