I had a fun little project going on around here yesterday – “A Day in the Life”. Basically, I took pictures of everything we did all day long – every normal, boring, ordinary little thing, because someday soon, these things won’t be normal or ordinary! And someday I’ll pull out my photo books to show them to my grandchildren, and tell them stories about their parents.;)
I’ve done “A Week in the Life” a few times in the past (here’s where you can check out 2010, 2012, and 2013), but by the end of the week, I’m sick of taking pictures. I thought a day would be much more manageable – quick, easy, and I still like my camera at the end of the day!! Plus, a lot of our days look the same right now, so I feel like after one day, I was able to get a good representation of things around here at the moment.
Having a new baby in the house will really change everything – it’s been awhile since we were in that stage! So here’s to life as we know it right now:
Kaylia started calling for us around 8 am. Anika was sleepy and grumpy, because Kaylia woke her up during the night to help find her “missing” pillow, which wasn’t actually missing – Kaylia just got mixed up about where she was in her bed!
I timed Anika for a multiplication speed test, and sat at the table admiring my orchids from Ben while I waited for her to finish. I’ve never been able to grow orchids before, so this plant is a major accomplishment for me.
Then it was time to head to the city for my physio appointment.
We got back to town just in time to drop Anika off at a musical practice at the church, and then Kaylia and I came home and shared a smoothie.:)
Ben and I watched an episode of “Once Upon a Time” while he did his “massage homework” – all the massage techniques that my massage therapist has given Ben to do for me each day.:) With 40 minutes of massage a day, Ben will have done his part bringing this child into the world!!
