Like Sands Through the Hourglass....

 Like sands through the hourglass, this is a day in my life.


 6 a.m.- A cup of coffee, a bit of facebook, a bit of emailing, a bit of blog writin' while the house is quiet. 


 7 a.m.- Time to wake up little man for school. He is not thrilled.


 8 a.m.- Little man has been dropped off so it's time for me to hit up the gym.  In this case, the elliptical. Of all the exercise I hate, I hate this one the least. 

9 a.m.- The best part about Max being in preschool is that for the first time in over 3 years, I can take an uninterrupted shower. 

10 a.m.- Kites and vacuum cleaners don't mix.  


 11 a.m.- School pick up. Max was not happy to leave.  School is more fun than Mommy, apparently.


Noon- Play time at the bookstore. The weather was icky so we were forced to find inside play. 


1 p.m.- Lunch. Look at me being all healthy and shit.  


2 p.m. - I was desperate for my own nap, so I thought maybe bringing Captain Whineypants into my room would help him fall asleep. Obviously it didn't work. 

3 p.m. - No nap for anyone.  I paid bills instead. 

4 p.m.- Max and his imaginary friend Scout were having a chat.  Scout was at work, obviously.  Scout's a dog so I'm curious as to his employer.

5 p.m. Dinner prep. Chicken Gyros.  Quite excellent if you ask me and as an added bonus, we were able to keep vampires away just by breathing.  There's no such thing as too much garlic.

6 p.m.- Max serenaded us with his version on Gangam Style.  Nothing makes a mother proud like hearing her 3 year old sing "Heeeeeyyyy Sexy Lady".

 7 p.m.- Couch, blanket, gossip magazine, ice cream, handsome husband.  What more could I want? 


8 p.m.- Obviously, I could want nothing more as I hadn't moved. 

By 9 p.m., I was in bed. I know, rock style life, right?  I wish this Writer's Workshop Prompt could have happened on a more exciting day but lets be honest-  when you have a 3 year old, no day is boring.

Hopping over from Mama Kat's! Our 6 am looks the exact same, LOL. And my 3 year old son has that same backpack your son has. =) Thanks for sharing!

Laura, my husband would concur re: the garlic. He puts so much of it in his mashed potatoes that I wake up in the middle of the night smelling garlic!!

Your little guy is so darling. It's great that he loves preschool. My youngest always wanted to stay home with mama, and that made it hard to leave him.
