A day in the life

After a crazy, busy weekend (and driving pretty much all over the state), it was nice to sit down and look through these pictures of a "typical" day with my boys.  (even though there is no such thing, really.)

A few weeks ago, I took on the challenge of taking pictures of my entire day, which was SO hard! 

 Good morning to my sweet boys!

Breakfast time.  Current request=fruity cheerios.

Boys play while Mommy cleans.  Then, "structured" play.  Puzzles, books, craft...

We usually go to Story Time on this day, but I signed the boys up for a "Winter Wonderland" Craft Day.  I came in only to be told that I had signed up for the 3pm class.  (Not possible, because the boys are napping then).  But she gave me a refund and we played in the Open Gym, where the boys got to run around and meet new friends.

This was the day before potty training, so we went to the store to buy Mr. Charlie some potty candy.  (He tried putting all of these bags in our cart...and by him I really mean me)

After lunch, babies nap while mommy blogs.  (If you ever need me, this is the time to reach me!)

After naps, we snack, play with trucks, take a walk, and get dinner ready.  (And yes, we usually do a costume change before naps.)

On this particular day, Noel gets the babies in bed, while I head out to the studio to teach. 

When I get home, I eat a little treat and watch a show with Noel before lights out!

Side note...I have no self control when it comes to Spring Time Oreos ^.

I hope you all had a great weekend!!

Spring time oreos... I just melt for them haha. What a beautiful day! Your boys always look so happy and like they are having a TON of fun.

I need to learn to limit myself to a "little" treat. Ugh..I have no self control for anything chocolate. Good luck with potty training!

Priscila@mommode said...

We have very similar days, imagine that! ;). Except the dancing part. But definitely the Oreo part. I can't believe Im going back to Turkey, aka the land f no Oreos!
Hope potty training was a breeze to ya. Loved this post!!!

I love the color of your computer room. And your older boy's expression in the second picture is so funny...he's apparently thinking about some very serious matter. :)

Sheena Rae said...

I love that blue wall! You sure have a busy day filled with two little cuties!

Katie Skelley said...

Your day reminds me of my toddler days, which were almost identical, except substitute teaching yoga for dance. :D I thought about doing a Day in the Life for Kelly's Korner but every day is different, so I struggled over how to do it.

Just wait til the boys start having after-school activities and sports!

Aimee said...

Perfection! Sometimes I love the post-nap hair fuzz! Our days look strikingly similar (just substitute your boys' blues and greens for my girls' pinks and purples!). Happy Monday, Ashley!

Helene said...

mmm oreos! and love these pics of your sweet boys!

I always have to have something sweet after dinner! Love this idea of capturing the little things in a day.

scrapperjen said...

Looks like a GREAT day! My "typical" day would be pretty boring.
Have a GREAT week - hugs!

Carlie said...

I love Oreos in general, but Springtime ones are delicious!

PS-I love your teal/aqua wall!

Kayla Peveler said...

Um... confession; I have no self control when it comes to ANY type of oreos, ALL THE TIME. ugghh.

I don't have any self control over ANY Oreo- be it spring, Halloween, Double stuff, etc.

Now i want to see more of your house!! i think Kaitlin and I need to come visit you and the family soon :)

LEIGH said...

I'm confused... If you have no self control with the oreos, then where is the rest of the package???
Looks like a great day :)

rooth said...

Ashley, I have no control when it comes to ANY kind of Oreos. My most favourite so far? The peppermint Christmas ones!

Jenny @ Spry On The Wall said...

I have no self control when it comes to Oreos any time. They are my kryptonite! I see you have the Blog, inc book, have you read it yet? I just got a copy.

Shaylynn, They Let Me Blog. said...

What I've concluded..

1. you are so busy.
2. you need to eat way more cookies then one.

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

I totally get the whole blogging-during-nap-time thing! Early mornings before the kids are up and afternoons while they nap are my prime blogging times! :) Granted, they aren't my kids, just the ones I nanny for, but I still get what you're saying. :)

Tayler said...

Yeah totally!
I'm loving the new workout clothes. If you are interested, definitely try them! You have a 20% off through me if you want it!
Thanks for checking my blog out.

Setarra said...

I'm horrible with oreos! I'll get a mug of milk, throw the oreos in and eat it like cereal ... Hence why I "try" to stay away from them ;) What classes do you teach?

helen said...

this is a great glimpse into your lovely life! your boys are really adorable :)

Emmy said...

I am yet to have a spring time oreo and am afraid to buy them as yea I won't have control. How cool that you still teach.

carrieburke said...

I love this idea of a day in the life post! When taking pictures of all the little every day things, you end up realizing that there's something special about every day!
