w ^母鸡Tsh的建议我写博客的“一天的生活”这似乎是一个艰巨的任务，因为我仍然在新生儿阶段，每一天都是如此不同系列的一个职位。这是一个具有挑战性的赛季保持程序和它需要很大的灵活性。尽管如此，我其实有很多好玩想什么我平均一天是想在这个赛季，然后记录的细节。William Hill体育
6:41– I’m still nursing Violet, but I can hear Jane, my 3-year-old, is clearly awake and possibly pulling books off the shelf. She’s doing something unknown—but loud—in her room. I grab my phone with my free hand and quickly check my work email. There are a couple emails that just need a quick answer, and I’m able to type a reply with one hand. Everything else seems like it can wait until I’m truly in work mode a few hours from now. Since almost everyone I work with is on the East Coast, I usually check email early just to make sure there’s nothing broken or urgent that needs immediate attention.
7:03——紫做护理我打嗝她d make sure Grey, my 10-year-old son, is getting ready for school. He’s already dressed, reading a comic book at the table, eating strawberries. I give him a hug and let him know how much I appreciate him being responsible and taking care of himself. I put Violet down in her bouncy chair so I can start making coffee and put a pot on the stove to boil water for oatmeal.
7:15– Oatmeal is ready and the kids are at the table eating. I pick up the baby and head back to my room to get dressed. My husband Ken is out of the shower and almost ready for work. He takes Violet to change her diaper while I get dressed.
7:19- 我回来在厨房里倒咖啡，并回答各种关于天谁驾驶垃圾车，为什么我们不能有一个宠物熊猫宝宝的问题。William Hill体育肯进来与紫罗兰和把她倒在她的弹跳座椅。我们简单聊了天。William Hill体育
7:31– I sit down to nurse the baby again briefly, then put her on a play mat on the floor while I pump. (Long story, but she had trouble gaining weight, so I pump a few times a day to keep supply up and then bottle-feed it to her later). While I’m pumping, I talk to Grey and remind him to put the banana in his lunch today, put his breakfast dishes away, take his medicine, put his shoes on, check if there’s any papers for me in his backpack, etc. I also take a quick peek at the news headlines on my phone.
7:47– Violet starts crying while I’m pumping, so Ken picks her up and walks around with her to calm her down. He asks me if Jane needs to be dressed, and I tell him it’s fine if she’s in pj’s, but she needs to put some shoes on. At this, Jane starts crying about how she doesn’t want to wear shoes, and since I’ve just finished pumping, I take the baby back while Ken handles the toddler complaints.
7:50– I tell the kids it’s time to go. Grey grabs his stuff and gets in the car. Jane walks out of her room wearing rain boots, pajama pants, and a cape, holding a baby doll and two books. I put the diaper bag in the car and come back inside to get Jane. Violet spits up on me and I hand her to Ken so I can quickly change my shirt while he cleans her up.
8:13– On the way to drop off Grey, we always listen to either the news (if I feel comfortable with the kids hearing it that day) or music Grey likes. Once we drop him off, we listen to Jane’s playlist of favorite songs which includes “Shake Your Sillies Out,” “Wheels on the Bus,” and “Let It Go.”
8:37– Now we’re back home. I put Violet in the baby carrier and Jane joins me in the backyard to water the avocado trees. Most of the other fruit trees are on automatic irrigation, but these three we still water by hand. While we’re there, I also water and turn the compost.
9:00– We go back inside because Rachel, the babysitter, will be arriving any minute. Jane goes to preschool three days a week, but is home on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Rachel arrives and we catch up briefly. Since Violet fell asleep in the baby carrier, I decide to go straight to my office and get work done while she’s sleeping.
9:05– I’m in my office (which is in a detached guest house in the backyard) at my standing desk with Violet sound asleep. Before turning on my laptop, I open my journal and write a few sentences and brain dump a few things I don’t want to forget to do this week. I open my paper calendar and make a few notes there as well, noting my top priorities for the day.
11:26– I’m dressed and ready to get back to work, but I remember I need to eat some real food. I quickly fry an egg and eat it on top of toast.
11:50– Violet still isn’t asleep so I’ve been doing family admin-type stuff (replying to a birthday party invite, going through our budget, making a grocery list, etc.) that requires less focus while waiting for her to fall asleep.
11:55– She’s finally asleep so I close out all tabs on my browser and get started on a work project that needs my focus.
12:57– Rachel leaves at 1 p.m. so I close up my laptop and bring it to the house. Jane just went down for her nap and Rachel and I chat a little. She tells me about something cute Jane did. She also lets me know that she folded the laundry and emptied the dishwasher. I thank her profusely and she leaves.
2:12- 我已经在我的笔记本电脑在餐桌工作，而珍妮在她的房间小睡，和紫小睡我在童车胸部。我估计我已经能够工作约3.5小时，到目前为止，还不算我已经从我的手机，而护理工作William Hill体育要做。有东西至少一个多小时，今天必须做的。我也许45分钟简从她的午睡醒来之前，但它过了三个小时，因为紫调养，所以我必须把她叫醒，并喂她。
2:20– Always multitasking. This time I am nursing Violet while eating nuts, drinking orange juice, and reading a fiction book on my Kindle.
3:47– Jane is finally dressed (I’ll skip over the repetition of questions like: “Do you want to wear the purple dress or the green dress?”) and I warm up two ounces of the bottle from this morning to give to Violet so she doesn’t get hungry and fussy while we’re in the car.
4:02——当我们到达,需要五分钟Violet into a baby carrier and put Jane’s shoes back on (she took them off while we were driving). Because of Jane’s nap and the challenge of newborn feeding schedules, I’m almost never there to pick up Grey right when school is out, so he goes to the library next door to do his homework, read, and wait for me. Lots of kids from his school hang out there after school. We go inside to get him and return a stack of library books that have been sitting in my trunk for a week.
5:35- 从公园回家的路上，我们停在UPS商店落一“你并不孤单”框(我side-hustle企业之一),然后自动取款机nd grocery store. When we get home, I turn on the oven to preheat for dinner. I put on an episode of “Daniel Tiger” for Jane while Grey plays on his iPad.
5:40– With Violet going back and forth between her bouncy chair and the baby carrier, I work on getting dinner ready and filling the dishwasher while listening to a fun playlist my sister sent me.
6:02- 时间改变另一个尿布，并得到其他两个孩子洗手，坐在桌子上。有关于有晚餐西兰花一些抢先抱怨。William Hill体育然后，简在浴室发生意外，所以我问灰色看紫这样我就可以迅速启动的衣物与脏衣服负载擦拭浴室地板上，并帮她干净的衣服上。
6:14- 肯为家庭和简和格雷都作出了很多可爱的大张旗鼓的约问候他。William Hill体育我在延长的拥抱和接吻传递紫在他面前倾斜。“晚餐几乎准备好了，但我只需要几分钟的时间独自一人。”
6:15– I leave my phone in the kitchen and go into our bedroom and lie on our bed for a few minutes of quiet alone before gathering myself to go back out in the noisy dining room.
6:20- 晚餐是在桌子上：烤蔬菜，米饭，鸡煮熟已经是我在杂货店回升。Ken拥有紫，而我赶紧吃了几口，然后我们贸易和我坐在沙发上，护士简要紫罗兰。我不那么远的地方，我不能在餐桌上加入对话。我们轮流询问对方对我们的日子，再加上有大量的中断，然后提醒不中断William Hill体育，等待轮到你了。
6:35– I’m back at the table eating the rest of my meal while Ken holds Violet. Grey keeps asking if he can read at the table and we keep reminding him that there’s no reading while we’re all together eating dinner at the table. Grey asks if he can have more screen time this evening and I tell him yes, if he eats all his veggies, helps clear the table without complaining, and speaks to everyone respectfully.
6:55– Dinner is over and Ken is getting Jane ready for bed and will do her whole evening routine with her. Grey is clearing the table with a speed motivated by the possibility of screen time and I’m settling in with Violet to nurse her again, this time with a full feeding, instead of the abbreviated one during dinner. Before I sit down, I make sure I have a glass of water, my phone, my headphones, and my Kindle. I’m tired and just want to plant myself in this chair for as long as possible.
7:18– Grey is ready for bed and eager for screen time. He brings me his homework so I can look over it and we talk for a few minutes about school, but he is not in the mood to chat at all. I tell him that he needs to floss again, but then he can have 30 minutes of screen time.
7:30– Violet is done nursing, but isn’t quite asleep yet. She’s just alert and happy, so I put away my Kindle and talk to her and stare at her beautiful baby face.
8:05– After he put Jane to bed, Ken told Grey to end screen time and switch to reading, then he moved the laundry from the washer to the dryer and got started on the dishes. I need another 30 minutes or so to finish a work thing that has to be done tonight. I’m afraid Violet will wake up if I put her down, so I prop her up on a pillow in my lap so I can sit at the table with my laptop.
8:40– I’m done working and Ken already tucked Grey in bed and turned out the lights for him, so now we sit on the couch to have some quality time together.
9:55– I get ready for bed then try to nurse Violet again, but she’s just too sleepy and won’t wake up enough to eat. Since she won’t nurse, I pump again. While pumping, I check Instagram, text my best friend about getting together the next day, text another friend about passing on clothes that don’t fit Grey anymore, look up a lentil soup recipe, and add a few things to my to-do list for tomorrow.
10:15– Ken is staying up to watch a show, but I’m too wiped out so I head to bed after labeling the bottle and putting it in the fridge.
