Miscellaneous Madness: A Day in the Life (June 2013)

Our posts on the blog generally center on certain activities we do or places we go. But there are plenty of just regular days around the Not-So-SAHM parts filled with ordinary daily things -- those dishes aren't going to wash themselves, no matter how much mom likes to think they will. And part of the reason mom keeps up the blog for us is to document all these little parts of our life, too. So, last month we posted our first "day in the life" pictures of a typical Not-So-SAHM day and decided to try and keep it up once a month.

In addition to joining No Monsters in My Bed, our friends from Where the Watermelons Grow have joined the 12 in 12 challenge. We all took these photos on June 4th -- it's funny to see the different things we were all doing on the very same day. Mom didn't really love any of the pics she captured this month, but it is what it is. Check out WWG's post here and then join us next month!

7.15 a.m. -- on mornings where Kane gets up before Cam, he gets a little extra iPad time to himself.

8.10 a.m. -- thank goodness mom found a kids parkour class for Kane. he spends a lot of time working on "his moves."

9.30 a.m. -- we hit the grocery store up for some fizzy water before Cam's first dentist appointment. she runs the aisles twirling and giggling and trying to get mom to buy candy before she gets her pearly whites checked out.

10.00 a.m. -- dentist. like a pro. 

11.35 a.m. -- we kill a little time at a nearby park before picking Kane up from school. Kane hates the swings, but Cam always ask to be pushed higher and higher. 

12.00 p.m. -- we stop by our most favorite lunch place -- Jetties Something Sweet -- for our usual: The Summer House sandwich for mom, a Hadley Plate and PB sandwich for the kids to split. plus at least two cupcakes (for the kids, of course). 

1.00 p.m. -- playdate at a good buddy's house. pirates in the backyard.

2.30 p.m. -- Kane plays with his new Playmobil knight set (whenever one goes to the dentist, both get presents. mom is such a sucker). 

3.15 p.m. -- Cam watches afternoon traffic on our busy street (dons the second of three outfit changes for the day).

4.15 p.m. -- mom waters our flowers. this is supposed to be a "kids help" activity, but we were both behaving badly that day and were sent inside. 

5.45 p.m. -- the muffin pan crab and corn cakes from armommy (a pretty and tasty monthly recipe subscription service mom just joined) cool in advance of dinner.

6.00 p.m. -- mom gets a head start on dinner dishes while watching VEEP (and probably pees her pants at JLD's hysterical rants). 

7.00 p.m. -- waiting for daddy to come home early. as a treat, we surprise him with a "mummy wrap" game we learned at school that day.
