5:15 E's alarm clock goes off and wakes me up. Which scares and shocks me all at the same time. See, I'm not normally even in our bedroom when E gets up. I normally move to Eliza's room after her early morning (2-4 am) feeding and sleep on the bed in her room.
6:00 the boys are awake and giggling in their room.
6:15 O is up and E is out the door. I take the bigger 3 kids out back to play and eat breakfast on the patio.
7:00 Bananas in Pajamas (are coming down the stairs!) for the kids, and I dive into my coupons. My Internet keeps crashing. I almost through my stupid mouse at the computer screen.
8:30 Eliza finally wakes up. I'm super engorged, so she keeps pulling off during "breakfast" and it hurts so much I want to cry. (thrush, anyone??)
9:45 Finally finish coupons.
9:50 we head to the bank, then to the store to buy our groceries. Where I have to tell the older kids to "please stop talking to me for a few minutes! I'm trying to THINK!" So, yeah. A tiny bit excited that I'll only be taking 2 to the grocery store with coupons next week.
11:00 Make lunch for the older kids and put Eliza down for a nap.
12:00 Get big kids settled in for quiet time. Lay down with Isaac, in hopes that he'll take a nap.
1:00 Its a no-go for the nap. I laid with him for a half hour, and I can hear him pounding on something in there.
1:03 I decide to try to make the paper lanterns I have planned for Eliza's party. Unfortunately, I've bought the wrong sized dixie cup. Dagnabbit.
1:30 I sweep and mop the floors. Isaac freaks (he's not a huge fan of the mopping. "too swippewy, mommy!") so I send him and O outside to paint.
2:00 Painting seems to be a hit with Isaac. O is done because most of the "good" colors are dried up. Eliza's up, I feed her a snack while I finish my chores.
2:30 I'm getting a headache. Seems to happen a lot around this time every day. Maybe its because I didn't eat lunch. Speaking of food, Crap! I forgot to put dinner in the crock pot! HIGH setting it is.
3:20 its too late for "lunch", but I have got to eat something. Coffee? Salted Carmel latte?? Yes. I eat an apple and some almonds, too.
4:00 time to feed shark baby (its what she feels like when she eats right now) and put her down for another nap.
4:30 E's home. Time to go run!
