A Day in a Bubblewrapp'd Life...

Happy Tuesday!

This morning I'm sipping coffee while contemplating life in front of the Pacific Ocean.

And this afternoon I will be getting up close and personal with some whales!

It's a hard knock life, man.

Kicking off the kick ass pals guest post is Andrea from Bubblewrapp'd.

She blogs, she Etsys, she drinks a lot of vodka...

My kind of girl!

And I definitely relate to a day in her life.....

This post is for the parents out there to know they're not alone in the complete and total madness. 


1:21 am Kid #2 (Captain) taps me on my forehead (while I'm deep asleep), and says, "I need my binkie! {AKA a special-to-him blankie) it's in the living room, and I NEED IT!" 

1:22 am Stumble to the living room for the binkie before he hits meltdown mode, and wakes up the whole damn house.

1:25 am Lay back down in bed.

3:00 am Dog #2 (Bentley) jumps into bed 2 hours early. I'm too tired to kick him out.

5:00 am Alarm #1 goes off for the Hubby. 

5:04 am Alarm #2 goes off for the Hubby.

5:10 am Alarm #3 goes off for the Hubby. 

5:16 am Alarm #4 goes off for the Hubby. 

5:20 am Hubby gets up, and Dog #1 (Taylor) climbs in bed to take his spot.

5:32 am Boys are up.

5:45 am Hubby makes them go back to their room to play quietly until 6:30.

5:50 am Me and Bentley are snuggling, and wishing we could sleep all day.




6:20 am Force myself to face the day, and get out of bed.

6:30 am Boys come out of their room.

6:30 and 14 seconds am "Mom, I'm hungryyyy."

6:40 am I set breakfast down in front of them, lean in to kiss Kid #1 (Bub) and he looks up at me, points at my chin, and says, "You saw that red spot on your face, right?"

6:45 am COFFEE.

7:45 am Load up the car with the boys' bikes to take to the city's park. 

8:30 am Unload the bikes at the park, and scratch the shit out of my car in the process.

8:31 am Regret bringing their bikes to the park.

8:35 am Start the bike ride.




8:50 am Wonder why we don't do this every single day.




9:15 am High five myself for having the brilliant idea to bring them to the park, and wear them out so early in the day. 

10:15 am After letting the boys collect 1,746 acorns (??? maybe? Not really sure what they are...), get them in the car to head home.

10:30 am HOME.

10:33 am Snack time.

10:40 am Cartoon time. 

11:05 am Captain says, "I'M HUNGRY MOMMMMM!!!"

11:10 am Lunch time. (Why are they always eating?!!!)


12:00 pm Look out the window and think "WHY GOD WHY?!!! WHYYY IS IT SO DAMN HOT OUTSIDE THAT I CAN'T EVEN SEND MY KIDS OUTSIDE TO PLAY?!!!!"

12:05 pm The boys haul a portable outdoor table inside and set it up in their room so that they can "pretend camp". Sounds good to me!

12:06 pm I finally make it to my office to start some work.

12:10 pm Break up fight #1.

12:30 pm Break up fight #2.

12:40 pm Break up fight #3. 

12:41 Make them take down the table, and quit "pretend camping" in hopes that they will quit fighting.

1:00 pm Have them start working on some Kindergarten work pages in an activity book. 

1:10 pm Captain, "Is it snack time?!!!!!"

1:10 pm Me, "NOOOO."

2:00 pm Snack time.

2:05 pm Bub asks me to take a picture of him and Bentley (he loves his puppies!). 



2-3:30 pm They sit down and watch the Lion King.

4:00 pm Their normal clean up time. 

4:00-4:30 pm They complain NON-STOP about cleaning up the mess THEY MADE.

4:45 pm (5:45 EAST COAST.... Don't Judge!Vodka Tonic time!




5:00 pm Time to feed them AGAIN. Start cooking!

5:02 pm Start a load of laundry.

5:10 pm Empty the dishwasher.

5:15 pm Load the dishwasher.

5:20 pm Break up fight #1 million.

5:30 pm Dinner time.

5:50 pm Dinner time is over.

6:00 pm Send the boys to their room to read books "quietly" for 30ish minutes.

6:05 pm They scream, giggle, and completely carry on in their room.

6:10 pm Hubby is home. Finally.

6:30 pm Bedtime routine begins. 

7:00 pm Boys bedtime.

7:15 pm Boys are up blaming each other for miscellaneous crap. 

7:30 pm Put them back in bed.

8:00 pm Boys are OUT.

8:00- 10:00 pm VODKA VODKA VODKA VODKA.

10:30 pm SLEEP. Finally.


I need a vacation.
