6:28 am: Thatbaby wakes up for the day. Which means Thatboy and wake up for the day. Thatboy hops in the shower while I nurse Thatbaby.
6:42: Thatbaby hangs out with Thatboy while I take Thatdog and head for a run. Ever since the early winter nights cut down on my running after works, I've returned to my old habits of running in the morning.
|What my trail looks like on a foggy Monday morning|
7:38: Thatbaby helps me make breakfast. This morning we have smoothies (frozen fruit and yogurt). He likes to press the buttons on the blender.
And he LOVES to drink his smoothie.
8:09: We're done with breakfast and I head back to finish doing my hair and makeup.
8:22: I put up our laundry. Mondays I do a load of whites.
8:25: Time for Thatbaby to get dressed so we can head out for the day.
8:34: Leave for daycare/school!
9:02: I arrive at work. Today is filled with going over a client's documents and preparing for one of the gagillion depositions I have this month.
12:00: lunch time!

5:05: The workday is over! I head home. Normally I pick up Thatbaby from daycare, but because Thatboy had the dentist appointment, he picked up Thatbaby. Which meant I got to enjoy a nice, long phone conversation with a friend.
5:18: Arrive home from work and give Thatdog a little walk.
5:30: Make dinner! It's soup night - sausage, potato, and kale to be exact. While the soup cooks on the stove, I throw the whites in the dryer, make our lunches for the next day and wash all the dishes.

Sausage, Potato, and Kale Soup
1 Tbsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
8 cups chicken broth
1lb Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp chipotle chile powder
1 head of kale, ribs removed and chopped
6oz chicken sausage, sliced
- Heat oil in a large pot. Add the onion and cook until transluscent.
- Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, just about another 30 seconds.
- Add chicken broth, potatoes, salt, and Italian seasonings. Bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes.
- Mash the potatoes into the broth with a fork (or a potato masher if you havev one - I don't).
- Stir in the chile powder, kale, and sausage. Bring back to a boil, simmer and cook for another 10 minutes, or until the kale is tender.
- Sprinkle with Parmesan before serving.
I also get breakfast ready for us for the next morning - overnight oatmeal!
|Thatbaby is gaga for this stuff. He put away 3 bowls the next morning|
Thatboy does bedtime routine with Thatbaby: bath, pajamas, and storytime.
7:39: Bed time for babies! I head in and give Thatbaby one last nursing session before bed and then put him to sleep.
8:01: I finish up with the cupcakes - frosting them and getting them ready to go.
8:26: It's me time! Thatboy's already on the couch, so I join him and we catch up on The Mentalist while I surf the internet and catch up on my blog.
9:30: We head to the bedroom. Night y'all!
