Moving Mommy Monday

20120709-111715.jpg

We had visitors this weekend, my dad and Phyllis😍. I get so excited when they come. My hubby also had the entire weekend off which is very rare. Needless to say I was on cloud 9 for the whole weekend. WOOHOO! It was very relaxing.

It was so hot out we didn’t want to spend too much time in the elements. We spent most of the time in the house watching movies and the little one explore (which never gets boring). We did a little shopping and I got to introduce them to a new meal “chicken fingers” (made with extra firm tofu) and sweet potato French fries and vegan lasagna. Success!! They loved it. I enjoy trying new meals and sharing the with my family as I learn my way around the kitchen and work towards eating no animal products at all (I’m having a hard time giving up the ice cream teehee).

I have to find a way to get to bed before midnight!! I don’t like to go to bed with dishes in the sink and the living room disheveled so I always seem to be up late straightening up. I think I have an idea that may work. With my running mileage increasing I need to make sure I get my rest so way some how! Here’s my plan: get a routine for my little one and have him in the bed no later than 8pm (it’s so much easier to get things done that way), don’t allow dishes to pile up, put toys away early, eat dinner at a reasonable time as a family. I think this could work.

Making moves as a mommy… it’s a work in progress😉

  1. I agree with the schedule… We all eat together around 7 ish , Taylor is in bed by 8:30 , Na-Kayla by 9:30 (during school) and Aaron by 10:30-11 (he hates sleep). So by the time all the kids are sleeping I’m exhausted but I stay awake to do my things or alone time with Nick. After all that I go to bed around 1-2am 😖. I do the dishes and cleaning of the toys right after dinner.

    • Oh this is good! I never thought about cleaning the toys at the end of EACH day. Can’t wait to get a routine… I know I need to be a little flexible but I need my rest ⛺. Thanks for sharing

  2. Hey Jill! I lost your email, so I am sending you a Facebook message. Talk to you soon and I love the blog! It’s like catching up with you, sans the phone.. lol.
