His favorite is ice cream for breakfast!
7:30- 8:15 breakfast with Peanut, hang out enjoy each other's company, I love this time. We are really able to focus on our conversation and he gets my undivided attention.

8:30- Pumpkin up, breakfast, usually Peanut and I sit with her while she eats, sometimes we hang out.

9:30-10:30 independent play time for pumpkin, weather permitting we go outside, I try to make any phone calls I have to do during this time. Depending on the morning and the to do list, this also becomes our morning errand trip. Grocery store, post office, bank, mystery shop etc.
11:00-12:00- make and have lunch. I try to make easy meals during the week, especially when it is just the two of us.
12:00-2:30- pumpkin nap, mama bring in the dry laundry and fold put on their beds to put away, take pictures of items for blog if need be, finish up little projects, start homework. Finish up any phone calls at this time. Pull out the ingredients for dinner, start some prep, or start thawing freezer meal. Check my Etsy store account and work on any orders at this time. Chores, check bathrooms depending on the day, run vacuum, dust and sometimes, I say the heck with it, and curl up on the couch with a good book, watch a tv show, catch a nap or relax with a nice bubble. Moms are allowed to have some me time right?
2:30-3:00 Pumpkin wake-up, free play- dress up, get afternoon snack ready for the kids when they come off of the bus. I often watch my neighbors children as well, so I have a house full.
