12 Hours

A peek at a day in our life, 12 hours, 12 photos.
This day was Monday, yesterday and I laughed as I took all these pictures because our day was so off schedule and crazy. The boys were up most of the night and it threw everything off for the rest of the day. But I guess that's the beauty of this series showing real life.  

7:00 am A quiet house and Coffee before the monsters wake up

8:00 am time to wake Ryder up for school. He snuck into our bed when Tyson left for work. 
Gage is still sleeping and I am dreading waking him up since he was up all night. Usually both boys wake up on their own between 7:00-8:30

9:00 am time for pre school! I finally woke G up 30 seconds before we left, poured him some milk and off we went, jammies and all.

10:00 am Gage is fed, dressed and we have some alone time. Even though I have so much that needs to get done I always try to put all my attention on G while Ryder is at school since these are rare moments.

11:00 am we pick up Ryder from school and they are so happy to see each other 

Noon: Lunch Time. Grilled cheese, fruit and cottage cheese.

1:00 pm It's Gage's nap time and I nurse him to sleep

2:00 pm Laundry, cleaning, blogging etc

3:00 pm Gage is up from his nap. By this time of the day im really dragging so it's an iced coffee for me, snack for the boys and we head out the door for a walk. Not pictured is the mud puddle they both decided to roll in and in G's case....eat.
4:00pm Quiet Time. Tv is turned off and the boys read books or play while I get some things done.

5:00pm Taco Casserole for Dinner. Dinner was early tonight because the boys desperately needed to go to bed early this night.
6:00pm My 6 o'clock hero walks in the door and the boys take a bath. Again, this is early because of the rough night they had. Usually we eat dinner and go on a walk at this time. 

7:00 pm early bedtime for the boys. Gage falls right to sleep and Ryder finally is out by 8:00pm
Bedtime for the boys is usually 7:00-7:30 for Gage and 8:00-8:30 for Ryder. 

Our daily lives are definitely not always pretty but it's mine and I love it!

    1. Thanks so much!! You should do one! We are totally boring but I love seeing how other people schedule their day :)

  2. Great concept.

  3. I just adore your bathtub. <3 the picture of the boys hugging is so sweet!

    1. Thanks so much!! Yeah the 5 seconds of them hugging was definitely better than the 10 minutes of fighting afterward :)

  4. So fun to see what a day is like for other mamas and their littles!
