Hey everyone! My name is Summer and I blog over at the Crosbie Crew. I'm so excited to share a day in my life with you. I live in Southern California with my wonderful husband Sean and our two boys, Hudson (3.5 years) and Parker (20 months). I'm a stay-at-home-mom but I also watch a one year old girl 3-4 days a week.
Here is a pretty typical day:
I start the day at 6:15am. Early right? Well I have to take my shower, get dressed, make sure the downstairs is all clean and if I have time, I check my email and read blogs. The little girl I watch, Baby C, shows up around 7:30am and most of the time my boys are up by then.
We watch a movie, play, learn, sing songs, build things, hang out on the patio and eat a snack until around 9:30am. Most of the time it looks like a toy bomb went off in my house.
Everyday we go on a long walk. I put the two littles in the double stroller and Hudson decides if he wants to walk or ride his bike. We go around the neighborhood, walk to the park, head over to the pet store or we end up at Target. Hudson loves to get a Slurpee there but that's only if he has earned it.
By the time we are all done its usually lunch time. I have three kids begging for food but I have a pretty good system down to get it to them fast. Playing at the park makes them hungry and most days there is no struggle with what they will eat. (I bow down to you moms of more than 2 kids!)
Then comes nap time. Sweet, sweet nap time or as I call it: mommy's break time. Although I usually clean up lunch or all the toys, it is my turn to eat and do what I want. I will do a craft, catch up on a show, twitter or just relax. But of course it doesn't last long. :) My oldest hasn't been taking a nap lately. No fun!
I hope you enjoyed a little peek into our lives. Life has been really busy so we enjoy these lazy days at home together. Feel free to stop by our blog and say hi. Thanks Mandy for having us!
