Just an example of what a day with Evie is like!
6:45am - Gets up, has bottle and breakfast (bananas are her favorite, but as of late, she is really liking peanut butter toast)
7:15am - Evie is strapped into her carseat ready to go on the morning school run.
7:45am - We get home and play. Which is usually just Evie emptying every shelf she can reach in the baking pantry, her entire crate of toys, the toy shelf in the family room and her crate of books. I try to pick up as we go, because she really loves taking things out...then loses interest and moves on.
8:30ish - Morning nap; I clean up all the toys and books so they are ready for the next round when she wakes up!
10:30am- I get Evie up. She gets a bath. Then we come downstairs for a bottle and a snack.
11:30am- Round 3 or 4 gets started with her emptying every shelf she can reach in the baking pantry, her crate of toys, the toy shelf in the family room and her crate of books.
12:30pm - lunch and sippy cup with milk. We read a few books- just a page or two before she rips it out of my hands and pushes another one my way. She chases Emma and I hurry to pick up the rest of the debris left in her wake.
1:30pm - Evie is down for her afternoon nap.
2:40pm- Evie gets woken up and strapped into her carseat for the after school run.
3:30pm- Snack and sippy cup.
4:00pm - Evie moves on to emptying the tupperware drawer and soda cabinet. Usually because I'm in the kitchen helping kids with school work, prepping things for dinner or putting dishes away.
5:00pm - She starts to get squirrely and we usually go outside to play, eat dirt in the courtyard or on a walk in her wagon.
5:30pm - John gets home and she gets some 'dad' time.
5:45pm- IF she's having a particularly bad moment she will get laid down for a short nap. Otherwise I occupy her with puffs and string cheese which will count as an early dinner.
7:30pm - on days where she doesn't take a short nap in the evening...this is BED TIME! YAY!
otherwise it's closer to 8:30pm
