We are slowly falling into a daily pattern. I work best on a predictable path. Me and the kids usually get up around 7:30 or 8:00 a.m. Leia usually eats dry cereal while Chloe nurses. After that we all take baths/showers. Around 9 or 9:30 Daddy gets home from work. (He works nights.) Chloe will eat some cereal and then take a nap. She wakes up around noon and nurses. Leia usually will eat peanut butter and jelly or mac & cheese for lunch. Chloe will then eat some baby food. Leia and Chloe take an afternoon nap from about 2-4. Daddy usually takes a nap too. Chloe nurses at 4 and then eats more cereal around 5:00. Everyone wakes up for dinner. We play until about 7:30 when it is time for bed. Then, I study or work until midnight. That is when Daddy gets up to go to work and I go to bed.

Tuesdays and Thursdays are Mother's Day Out and I try to go to the office for the entire time so I can get some paid work hours in. It has been a busy few weeks trying to juggle family, work & school. The college degree will make the sacrafice and hard work worth it.
