It’s been a while since I did a Life Lately post and well…I think it’s a great time! Usually I share what we’ve been up to but since the world has been hit with Covid-19, our daily life is the same almost every single day (sigh, Ground Hog Day for sure) so I thought I’d share a day for us.
I should note that this time has been hard because we are missing our family. We also really miss the beach! BUT, it’s been great because we’ve had Judd home a lot more than usual.
Our Daily Life Lately
I picked just a random day that Judd was off work. This is a very typical day for us. Judd and I wake up around 7:30, we both get ready for the day (although somedays we shower and put pajamas back on, haha). I do a little work and he does things around the house. The kids are up around 9.
We make them breakfast which is always the same thing (cereal, bananas, milk, and turkey sausage-boring)!
Then they watch cartoons for about a half hour while we clean up breakfast and do stuff around the house. This sweet little boy loves taking selfies with me right now!
Here they are helping me dry my hair. 😉
Making “School” a Fun Part of Life Lately
Another big part of life lately is “Mommy School”. This is just an at home preschool curriculum I put together. I don’t know why we even call it that, I think Ella said it once and it’s just stuck. We do this for about 1-2 hours, it really just depends on how the kids are doing that day. If they are enjoying it and focusing, we will do it for 2 hours, if not, we just do it until they lose focus. I want school to be fun right now and not forced. I’m actually pretty nervous to see if Camden and Ella’s preschool is going to start in the fall thanks to Covid-19. 🙁
Then we usually play for a little bit and it’s time for lunch!
After lunch, we usually go do something outside or play inside if the weather is bad. Lately we’ve been going to local parks (staying away from everyone) for picnics and bike rides.
Nap Time and Various Grown-Up Stuff
Then it’s Judd and my favorite time of life lately, NAP TIME! Haha, just kidding but really. 😉 They nap for about 2 hours and we either work on projects or binge watch TV. We’ve been binge watching a lot during all of this- Tiger King, Handmaids Tale, Hannibal, and Outer Banks.
Somedays I get bored and do weird things like try fake eyelashes. 😉
The kids always wake up starving so we feed them a snack and then it’s family time! We love to play games, go on bike rides, build Picasso Tile castles, and play outside (the temperature right now in Charleston is perfection)!
One day we did this fun obstacle course.
Then it’s time for dinner followed by bath time.
Closing Out Life Lately with Bedtime
At the end of the night we try to get them to calm down by reading books, putting a simple show on TV, or doing Cosmic Yoga.
Then we go to bed and start all over the next day, haha!!
Like I said, this has been great because we’ve had Judd home more but we’ve had to cancel 7 trips and are definitely going a little stir crazy!
