I’m back with another A Day In The Life Of… It’s a chance for other bloggers to share what a typical day looks like for them. I’m proper nosey and I love to see what people get up to in their day. It’s also a great chance for you to find some more blogs that you might like to follow.
Today we have Han-Son from DaddiLife, a parenting website for dads. Han-Son is a busy working dad and we get to see how he manages to juggle life.
Here is what a typical day looks like for him…
05:00 Max wakes up from his cot, and invariably has a snuggle with mummy and daddy.
07:00 I get up, have a shower and get the little guys breakfast on – still clinging onto hope that he’ll find his love of porridge again…No, ok, back to toast and cheerios!
07:50 I head off to work (except on Tuesdays where I take him into his childminder, wish it could be more)
13:00 Usually get my daily pic from the child minder of how he’s doing. It has a great way of re-charging me for the rest of the afternoon.
16:00 Note to the other half about dinner plans. I’m trying to cook healthier these days. We’re even trying ‘vegan’ dinners – need to rid of this dad bod somehow! 😉
18:30/19:00 I make it in time for last bit of feed. How has he got most of it on the floor!?
19:30 We read, play, talk about the day. My phone is nowhere in sight – a recent vow I’ve made after noticing how I just missed really being present in my limited time with him.
20:00 I feed him his milk, which he’s somehow now managed to drink all of and NOT fall asleep straight away. The next 30 minutes are usually what I like to call, diplomatically, sleep negotiation time. He’s got quite crafty recently at totally coincidently I’m sure, needing the ‘toilet’ around then too….cheeky.
20:30/21:00 Quick bite to eat for me and the Mrs.
21:30 Quick bit of tidying, life admin and site work before bed.
Recently he’s started sleeping right the way through to 05:00 now – which is like a true miracle. On Saturday and Sunday’s it’s a chance for me to have that real quality time – we go out…A LOT – to the park, to see the ‘dinosaurs,’ to go shopping, to try new foods, to read, to sing.
I never really used to live for the weekends, but now…I really see what all the weekend fuss is about. I love outdoor play, it’s such an important thing for us to do.
