First day of Week in the Life! Monday Morning

  • Geoff's alarm goes off at 6:30. I can hear Sage playing with Jasper's LeapFrog activity table in the living room. Jasper still has quite the cough.
  • Jasper starts to cry so I get up at 6:50. Find that Sage has wheeled the bassinet over to the carpet and has put Jasper into his Bumbo. Nurse him.
  • Sage tells me that she woke Jasper up by touching him on his head. She wanted someone to play with!
  • Geoff gets up. Cuddle with J for a minute after I'm done. Sage still has not stopped talking.
  • Go change J's diaper. Put him on carpet to play with Sage.
  • Tidy kitchen. Make Sage's lunch.
  • 7:15 Geoff leaves for work. Give Sage bowl of Shreddies. Make Jasper's oatmeal and prunes President's Choice Organic cereal. Sage gets ready.
  • Check weather. Cool out this morning. Cuddles with J and Sage on couch. Notice how terrifingly long Sage's fingernails are getting. Cut them.
  • 8:10 leave for bus. 8:26 back from bus. Remember that my electric kettle broke. Hunt for old red stove-top one. Put it on and then put J down for nap on our bed. Hear kettle whistling. Neat.
  •  Upstairs for coffee and blogs.  Love my Tim Horton's french vanilla coffee.
  • Coffe is done so now it's time to go clean Sage's room.  Looks like a cyclone hit it.  Wonder how on earth I'm going to manage when both kids are in here.
  • 10am hear Jasper cooing to himself.  Play on the bed with him for a little bit.  Change diaper.  Put him on the floor to play.  Everything goes into the mouth!
  • I have 2 oatmeal cookies and a glass of water for breakfast.  Unload dishwasher.
  • Jasper fussy.  Over to play on floor with him.  Desperately wants my water glass.
  • I turn on music.  Feel like I am constantly moving remotes and toys around.
  • Back to dishwasher.  Load.  Jasper mad again.  Play.  Go get Jasper dressed.
  • Empire State of Mind by Jay-Z comes on.  Jasper and I dance around living room.  Time to nurse him.  Cuddle on couch for a bit.  He's fascinated by my hoodie strings.
  • Back up to Sage's room.  Jasper hangs out in FP Rocker.  Hang up clothes.  Put size 5 stuff in box for Roz.  30 mins later Jasper has had enough.  Move him to Intellitainer.  I take out box of Sage's summer clothes and put them into closet.
  • Noon.  Lunch for Jasper is organic peas and brown rice followed by some sweet potatoes.  He has 10 minutes of floor play and then is down for his 2nd nap at 12:30.
  • Lunch for me.  Leftover's from Saturday.  Pioneer Woman's Chicken with Tomatoes and Garlic and a couscous salad. 
  • Watch first 20 minutes of The View.  Grab a Diet Coke with Lime and back up to check blogs.
