The Days of My Life

By Meghan Gesswein |

The life of a stay at home mom is never boring. Unless you look at it from a slightly different angle, and then it’s pretty much always boring.

Funny how that works, isn’t it?

I thought I’d give you all a glimpse into what a typical day is like for me. It also turned into a glimpse about how scattered and distracted I get throughout the day, so that’s fun. You can practically see my brain thinking: “Time to pay bills…oh look! Something shiny! Now, what was it that I was needing to do again? Oh, my computer is open. I should look at Pinterest!”

Obviously, this isn’t a complete list of our daily goings-on, it’s only intended to give you the highlights. Or lowlights as the case may be.

But first, a few disclaimers:

  • We are in the middle of a remodel, so my husband and I are sleeping in the living room. He sleeps on the couch and I sleep on a big chair and ottoman that are pushed together. It is less than ideal, but I think the end is in sight. Hopefully.
  • Oliver doesn’t usually spend all day crying. This was just a particularly tough day for him, apparently.
  • Yes, I see the irony in the fact that I’ve talked about how we don’t eat fast food that often, but, of course, the day that I document our lives we do.
  • It just so happened that I decided to do this on Valentine’s Day. I can safely say that I have never, ever given Dylan a heart shaped sandwich before. This is not a usual occurrence, although he liked it and asked if I’d do it every year. I consider that a win.

A Day in the Life of a Stay-at-Home Mom

Wake Up Time

The baby, who so kindly sleeps with me on my "chairbed," starts to stir at about 6:45am. Even though waking up was his choice, he's still not very happy about it. Quite frankly, neither am I.

    I can SO relate! I’ve also double-washed the bath mat in one day (and there are also days that the toilet paper just ends up staying strewn around the house). :)
