The Daily Dime

This day-in-the-life post is part of a monthly linkup; just take ten pictures, share your day, and join in! One of the hosts is Jennifer, from Life in the Green House. Check her out!

Daily Dime 1

7:00 am

Yesterday, Robert went to work early, so I woke up to an empty bed. My first thought upon waking up was that I had not made his lunch. When I found that he had made his own, I think I swooned just a tiny bit. He really is wonderful, y’all.

I laid in bed until I heard some cooing from down the hall, then our little boy and I started our day. This gem of a photograph was captured while I cleaned up breakfast. He has found many unconventional ways to enjoy this walker!

During morning nap time, I worked on lesson plans. I want to be more intentional about providing developmental opportunities, so I chose some “subjects” and started planning.

After lesson planning, I switched to meal planning. Can you tell that I like having plans? This stack of cook books accumulated as I worked on creating a calendar of meals for the next week.

I put this mat together for the third time today. Our little guy loves taking it apart. I roll my eyes, but I love his playful, mischievous nature. Keep the messes coming, little love. I’ll even chase down the stray coasters that you love to carry all over the house.

During the afternoon nap, I managed to sneak in some restful knitting time. When I have the opportunity to work on my hobbies and engage in Bible study during the day, I am in a much better frame of mind (i.e., I am much more capable of handling the little man’s needy moments). I’m so thankful I had this time, since Robert had to work late.

One of the “subjects” in the lesson plan is a Bible lesson; we will be doing several activities with the same story throughout the week. This week, we are learning about Noah’s ark. I look forward to these lessons becoming more interactive as our sweet boy grows.

I finished preparing some happy mail for a friend, just a little too late to get it to the post office.

6:50 pm

I accepted that Robert would not be home for a reasonable dinner time, so I ate some of his sugary cereal to tide me over while I gave the baby some much healthier leftovers.

9:30 pm 

We snuggled on the couch before crawling into bed a little after ten. Not a bad day. Not at all.
