Day 2 - Week in the life of

Day 2: Just another normal day for us here at the Pontow house with Julia sleeping in while I have a quiet morning to myself getting things together. We did however have a slow couple of hours where all we did was watch Sesame Street and hang out with each other. Sometimes that’s the best part of the day though. Especially when it all begins with waking Julia’s sleepy self up and getting snuggles in her new bed! After lots of play time Julia can be hard to transition though, so we naturally had a melt down in the middle of the day, but made up for it with a great walk to the library with NO stroller! It can be the most relaxing time to have a 3 year holding your hand, chatting away, and not have a care in the world except to get to the library! And then to come upon a butterfly on the way home that could care less too makes it even more magical! Tuesday was a little different for me as far as my daily life because Jon had to work late at work, which in turn means me having to pick him up (because Roxanne doesn’t work that late and we only have one car) and not making my 6:30 Body combat class at the gym. But, to compensate for this I did make chili in the crock-pot and had dinner ready for use when we all got home after a quick stop at Winco for cornbread! But, it seems that the small change in the day like this just overwhelms me and I had a difficult time getting the rest of my housework done. I just lay on our bed with a headache and after a moment I come to see that Jon has helped me during a difficult moment by picking up all the toys and doing the dishes. Where would I be without him? Julia of course never goes to bed easily, and tonight it seems all I wish for from her. By 10:45 she’s still awake in bed, and we don’t make it to bed until 11:00. 5:45 am comes really quickly!




Julia's idea, thought it was interesting that Ali did this on her blog Monday...

Chores/housework/whatever you want to call it!

Tea Party!

Returning books!


Princess Frog is all buckled in!


A good way to get myself in the picture is just by taking all of our shadows - mine looks very skewed due to the large purse and 2 cameras I'm holding!


Coming back to an empty sink because the hubby took care of it! Thanks!

Trampoline time to exhaust the girl!


Goodnight!
