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

August 5, 2008

Life as a Stay-at-home Mom is so completely relaxing, don’t you think? Here’s how a typical day in my life goes:

7.45 – Just back from tennis on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays; on other days and rainy days, just woken up

8.00 – breakfast for the twins, pack something for Amit

8.30 – tidy up, toilet calls

9.00 – my breakfast

9.00-10.00 – fold up laundry, show kids their picture book, talk to mum on phone

10.00-11.00 – exercise, toilet calls

11.00-12.00 – boil rice, bathe and dress the kids

12.00-1.00 – boil eggs, dish up lunch, tidy up the kids’ toys, put kids to bed, tidy up lunch table, wash up

1.00-1.30 – bathe and dress self

1.30-2.00 – lunch, usually seated in front of the computer

2.00-3.00 – on computer

3.00-3.30 – kids wake up, toilet calls

3.30-4.45 – play violin

5.15 – 6.30 – park outing

6.30-7.00 – organise kids’ dinner
