A Day In The Life Of…Grumpy Mum

A Day In The Life Of…Grumpy Mum

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 Grumpy Mum, a mum to one and step mum to two, living in Wiltshire.

Here is what a typical day looks like for her:

05.00-06.00: Wake up with Baby babbling at me for milk. Feed and change her with my eyes practically closed and then fall back into bed.

06.00-08.00: Promise myself that I will go back to sleep because I’m exhausted but after 10 minutes end up on my phone or working on my laptop, all the while reminding myself that I will regret not getting an extra couple of hours sleep.

08.00-09.00: Get Baby up and changed again… how does this baby make so many dirty nappies? Head downstairs and take a few minutes to have some toast and a cup of tea while Baby goes crazy on her play mat.

09.00-11.00: Yep, it’s time for Baby to have more milk and if I’m really lucky she’ll have had a poo. What a glamourous life I lead! With any luck after a little bit of playing she will want a little nap and I’ll be able to able to put the laundry on and maybe do a little blogging.

11.00-13.00: Oh God, I still haven’t had a shower, did I have one yesterday? What day is it anyway? Once Baby wakes I trundle off for a shower with baby staring at me transfixed, through the steamed up glass… She won’t let me go to the loo but apparently I am allowed a shower. Once I’m clean it’s time to get some lunch which Baby may or may not let me eat, it’s a bit of a lottery.

13:00-15.00: Another feed and change for Baby and some playing and reading then it’s time for a proper nap. I spend half of nap time staring at how perfect she is while praying she doesn’t wake up yet and the other half furiously trying to get some blogging done.

15.00-17.00: Baby wakes up and remembers that she’s teething and must spend the rest of the day crying or sleeping. She was such a happy baby this morning, I’m not sure what happened. Teen and Grumpy Dad have arrived home and are busy wafting about and changing the TV channel… I was watching that!

17.00-20.00: The lovely Grumpy Dad makes the dinner and we all sit down together to eat and watch a bit of TV. What happened to the day? I’m sure I only just got up. Baby needs more food and another change and I miss half of the TV show because baby and I are growling at each-other (She has decided that she wants to be a bear instead of a baby).

20.00-21.00: It’s time for Baby to have some quality time with daddy while mummy has some quality time with the washing up and tidies up the days destruction.

21.00-22.00: The best time of the day. Baby is ready for bed and we have a nice long snuggle over her last bottle before she goes down in her cot next to me and chatters and blows raspberries until she falls asleep.

22.00 – to some god awful time past midnight!: Time to get on with some serious blogging work, reply to emails, write posts, take part in linkys and do some marketing.

…repeat indefinitely!

    I’m not sure how you find the time to do all that you do I end up having to do about two-three hours blogging a day if that as I have two kids and a part time job too… its a logistical nightmare yet you cope with an even smaller one!
