You know how they say being a mom is like having two full-time jobs?
They aren’t lying!
You’d think after 5, almost 6, years I’d be used to this, but man- keeping up with every little thing that moms have to do is an insane amount of work.
Today I worked every single second from the time I woke up until just now (5:36pm) and I’m feeding Payson a bottle while blogging and I have at least another 2 hours of cooking and cleaning to do. *groan*
It wasn’t a bad day, just busy. And just busy with very normal things. Cleaning, cooking, schooling, mothering, repeat, repeat, repeat….
I made the kids oatmeal for breakfast (cheap, easy, healthy- awesome) and while they ate I made muffins.
They ate half the blueberries while I was stirring.
I loooove blueberries!
And I loooove muffins made with yogurt!
All three kids liked the muffins, but Sierra was the biggest fan. She ate three today!
After breakfast we went right into school time. We played a bunch of games first. This word bingo is the girls’ current favorite. We played it a couple times. We don’t really play it like bingo should be played. We always do blackout since both girls want to fill both their boards each time.
The girls spotted these ring pops on my desk.
They got a kick out of their bright pink tongues.
And their pink teeth.
Yay for ring pops!
While they were eating their suckers I read to them.
After that we played Go Fish. (Sierra won every time! Funny, huh?)
We ate lunch.
Ham, potatoes, carrots, celery and hummus.
The girls hated hummus. Honestly, so did I. It was the second recipe we’ve tried and I guess we’re just not big fans of garbanzo beans.
After lunch Brooklyn read her scholastic readers to me and Sierra. And then the kids played with their toys while I cleaned the kitchen.
Then we had snack. Sierra really, really wanted another muffin.
Looks like Payson does, too.
Brooklyn wanted a mini cheesecake. (I substituted pecans for half the graham cracker crust and it tasted really good and was slightly healthier)
Sierra thought the blueberries baked into the muffin paper looked yucky.
She wasn’t having much luck getting the paper off.
So Brooklyn did it for her.
Payson was fairly full from his food (sweet potatoes, chicken, and carrots mixed in the food processor) so he just had some formula.
And now it’s 6:01pm, took me 25 minutes to do this because I got up and changed Payson, gave him a mini bath, and put him to bed in the middle of posting this! Motherhood is busy, busy busy.
I hope you all have an awesome weekend. I’m going to go make dinner and then get my girls in bed!
