A Day In The Life with Three Under Three

If you’ve been following Dallas Moms Blog for awhile, you may recall the “Day In The Life” series we did a couple of years ago.

Kelly, Jenny, Amanda, Heather & Cassidy did as any good blogger would do, and they wrote about a typical day in their lives. But ever wonder what your day would “look” like if you took a photo every hour? The description of a typical Saturday in my life currently lends itself much better to pictorial review rather than verbal review.

Why, you ask?  Simple!

3 children under 3 (+ 2 dogs)

So without further ado, here’s a glimpse into a recent Saturday in my life via my picture log. (Yes, that would make it my Plog–can I copyright that?)

5 o'clock hour on a Saturday???

Getting a shower in before the littles wake makes the day go much smoother.

Yep, you guessed it.  TV watching happens in our house (gasp!). Other than nap, it's about the only time this little guy will sit quietly.

5:00 pm

From L to R:  1) Daddy-son bike-riding 101 2) Patience for the 2.5 year old who would rather look at the birds is waning. 3) Daddy-son date with the bike is officially done.

Believe it or not, writing and/or working is my time to unwind.  And the wine helps a lil too.

    I am a contributer for Fairfield county moms blog and am in the EXACT same situation as you – minus 1 dog! I felt like I was looking at my own life through your plog! My oldest is almost 3 and I have twins that are 8 months….and my name is Michelle! Thanks for sharing!

      Wow, Michelle! Sounds like we lead parallel lives. Would love to see a plog of your Day In The Life. 🙂

    Hi Michelle –

    Sounds just like our life as well. My oldest will be 3 in May and my twin girls were born in June 2013 (8 months). I was wondering if you would mind sharing a little more detail about your nightime routine. My husband and I are really struggling with that right now so would love any tips, advice, etc. Thanks so much!
