Thank you Brainiac™ Kids for sponsoring this post. Brain food kids want to eat!
It’s no secret that I have a lot on my plate. Without my “village” I wouldn’t be able to accomplish as much as I do now.
I’m always interested to see how other moms spend their days, so I thought I would share my typical [weekday] daily routine as a working mom of 2.
Daily Routine of a Working Mom
While it’s true I share a good number of behind-the-scenes on Instagram + in stories, I usually tend to forget about my phone once I walk in the door after work until the kids are in bed or at least relaxing before bed.
4:30am – alarm goes off for boot camp
4:30-4:45am – get dressed + down a pre-workout drink before leaving
5:55am – back home and jump in the shower in the hopes of being completely dressed (hair + makeup) done by 6:30
6:30am – wrestle the kids out of bed to get ready for school (includes breakfast, getting dressed, hair + teeth brushed)
6:45am – make coffee while I finish packing the kids lunch boxes
I have one kid in full-day school (needs lunch) and the other goes half days (just snacks required). Both of their teachers request “healthy snacks” to be sent with them. The kids love Brainiac™ Kids Applesauce pouches; available in apple, strawberry and cinnamon flavors. I love them because just one 3.2oz pouch provides 90% of their daily omega-3s.
7:30am – I leave with my oldest for school drop off and head to work
8:30-8:45am – Arrive at work around this time depending on traffic.
3:00pm – watch the clock
4:45-5:00pm – leave work and head home
6:00pm – Get home and either make dinner or if it’s Tuesday/Thursday finish getting the kids dressed for soccer practice. Our babysitter will feed them dinner before I get home on soccer nights. The kids will grab a snack like a Brainiac™ Kids Applesauce in their favorite flavor or some type of fruit + a water bottle before we head out the door.
6:45pm – finish dinner and wash the dishes. Little one will most likely immediately ask for a snack so I hand him a Brainiac™Applesauce because he most likely refused to eat a vegetable. Each pouch contains as much choline as 2 cups of broccoli. #winning.
7:00pm – do homework with the oldest while the little one plays/eats his snack
7:30pm – pajamas + a bedtime show
8:00pm – we read a book in bed + lights out/sleep time
8:15pm – I’m still laying in their bed because at least one or both can’t sleep
8:35pm – work my ab muscles trying to sneak out of my middle position on the bed, trying not to wake them
8:45-9:00pm – my husband gets home sometime during the bedtime shuffle, so we chat a bit before he plays video games
9:00-10:00pm – ME TIME; usually binge watch a show, respond to emails/DMs, scroll the ‘gram before lights out by 10pm so I can make my 4:30am wakeup call.
