A Day in My Life as A: Stay at Home – Work at Home – Sports Mom


I have friends constantly asking me… How do you do it all?  Then they go into saying, I can barely keep up with the one child I have.  I don’t see how you do it with four children.  Let me show you how a day in my life goes as a: stay at home / work at home / sports mom.  You’ll find I have days where somethings got to give.

A Day in My Life

 

6:30 am – alarm clock goes off…  I hit snooze and repeat this step continuously until about 6:45 am where I finally drag my butt out of bed to wake the kids up.

Climb back into bed…

7:05 am – alarm clock goes off… hit snooze again.   It’s my reminder to yell at the kids to make sure they are in shower.

7:15 am – alarm clock goes off again.. this is about the time I’m dreading getting up from my comfy bed.  I finally turn my alarm clock off and get out of bed.  I make sure the kids are getting dress and headed down for breakfast.

7:20 – 7:50 am – I jump into the shower, get dressed and head down stairs.

7:50 am – I make the kids lunch for school.

8:00 am – We head on out the door and on our way to school.

8:30 am – I’m back home, I grab some coffee and by 8:55 am – I’m out the door again.

9:05 am – arrive at the church, today happens to be MOPs.. (I volunteer as a Mentor Mom) until about 12:20 pm.

12:30 pm  arrive home.

12:30-1:00 pm  lunch.

1:00 -3:00 pm work on the website, catch up on business emails and social media.

3:00 pm –  pick the kids up from school.

3:30 pm –  arrive home, feed the kids a snack, have them dress for baseball.

4:25 pm – arrive at the baseball field.  (We are 10 minutes late)

By 7:30 pm – the baseball game is over and we’re all hungry.  I’m exhausted.  I failed to make dinner ahead of time and the thought of having to do dishes is even more exhausting.

7:30 pm – we are grabbing dinner at McDonalds and heading home.  You’re probably wondering why McDonalds? McDonalds happens to be the perfect ‘treat’ for us.  There’s no fuss, I know my kids won’t complain and on those days when I am watching what I am eating.  I know I can get several healthier options on their menu that are under 400 calories or less.

By 8:00 pm – we are done eating.  Kids are doing their homework and getting cleaned up before bed.

9:00 pm – kids are in bed and I’m finishing up my bible study homework for the next day.

9:40 pm –  back on the computer, working on the website until about 11pm sometimes 12am before I finally hit the hay.

Days like this are exhausting and it’s OK to know your limits and get some help.  For me, it was dinner and dishes — McDonald’s style 😉
