A Day in the Life of Daniela...

A Day in the Life of Daniela...

Good Morning Lovelies! Today you are invited to spend a day in the life of her. 

You know that gal who you might think has it all together. The mama who seems to do it all. Well guess what? She doesn't. Let's fight those lies. This new series is an effort to get rid of the "super mom"  image that we all make for ourselves in our heads. It is a time to inspire one another even more. We do not have to always have it together to be good moms, wives, and women in sisterhood!

I have invited some wonderful women to share their story with us and to be real with y'all. They will share their struggles, their victories, their frustrations, their joys, and everything in between. It may not be glamorous, but it is real and real is absolutely beautiful 

Come walk a bit in the shoes of another....
Hey there! I am Daniela. My husband and I have been married for a little over 10 years, and have a 5 and 3 year old. I work part-time a few days a week, and am a mother and a wife 24/7. 
Come and hang out with me………….
7:43: By this time I am up, coffee’s brewing, news is on, and I’m getting ready to make my angels’ pancakes. I promised them last night I would make them pancakes as long as they went to sleep which they did and so did I! Although I should be well rested I am not. I am so tired and must put this coffee in the tank if I intend to get anything done today. While making pancakes I start my to-do list. By this time the kids are up and about, currently watching cartoons. It is freezing out (well for us “freezing” is 40 degrees) so it’s freezing inside. This cold front just came our way a couple days ago so even though we are cold it’s a nice change

I’m such a morning person so I try to get mostly everything done in the morning while I have the energy.

8:55: By this time pancakes have been destroyed, milk disappeared and I had a chance to read Lady and the Tramp to my princess. Then my little angels read a book to me. I cherish these moments so much. I am thankful I get to be home with them for most of the day.

Now time to do homework.
9:40am: After homework, and watching Curious George, it’s time to TRY to get a little workout in. I don’t have much energy so I chose to do arms today. I typically run, but I need to work my arms…bad!

10:56 After working out my arms I decided to cut my own hair! YES, CUT MY OWN HAIR! I have long hair, down to my lower back. It was my first time, and I always say “hair grows back” so time to apply that saying to myself.

Right now I just finished and am getting ready to blow dry and style my hair. I kept thinking “Shoot, I effed up my hair”, but it came out pretty good. Once I curled it, it looked decent. 

Now time to get the kids in the bath and get them ready and feed them lunch.

2:00pm.We are finally back! We left at 11:58am and returned at 2pm. So after dropping my son at school, we then went to the convenience store, then the library. I love spending quality one-on-one time with each one of my babies. My princess and I played at the library, picked out some books and then headed home, but not before I stopped at KFC. All I had eaten was a spinach salad and coffee for breakfast so I was starving. That’s what I get for not planning; so KFC got the best of me.

Once at home I get started on dinner; chicken soup with veggies, and pasta, with cornbread. I can honestly say I NEVER make soup for dinner. Usually when I make it, it’s lunch for my princess, but that’s it. We LOVE cornbread, but I try not to make too many breads or sweets for that matter. I have a serious sweet tooth.

2:45: My husband is home and all is well in the Now it’s time for me to get in the shower. I am exhausted, but I have to get ready for work.

7:23 I am back from work. Kids are fed. Now I am reading the books we got at the library. I finish reading three books and let the kids watch cartoons before bedtime. Bedtime is at 8-830pm so they don’t have much time left. I also brush their teeth and get them in the pj’s.

While they watch cartoons I pick up the house.

9:25 Lying in bed. Bedtime did not go according to plan..and neither did picking up. Instead I sat on the couch eating ice cream, watching New Girl, but it was worth it! Hahaha…..My son threw a fit before bed so it pushed everything back. Finally, I get to hear myself breath…..I love spending some time to myself, but I get bored without my kids. I am about to wake my husband up since he’s off tomorrow so we can spend time together. When the kids are asleep it is our version of a “Date Night”.

Goodnight. Hope you enjoyed a day in my life. It’s always GO, GO, GO, and at times seems so boring (especially when writing everything down), but it’s extremely rewarding. I love my little family and would not change one thing!

XO Daniela
