I missed the last two Day In The Life posts, but I'm happy to be linking up with Julia for the Spring 2016 DITL roundup. I recorded Friday, April 1st for our family. Today I am 34 years old and 38 weeks pregnant with baby girl #4, E is 35, Miss A just turned 6, Little J is 4 and Lady C is almost 20 months.
6:57am: I wake up and look at the time, but I have no interest in actually getting out of bed. I haven't been sleeping well due to my giant belly, so laying in bed sounds just about perfect.
7:15am: Lady C is up. E is already up getting ready for work so he gets her and brings her to me. I'm hoping for some morning snuggle time, but she is wild when she wakes up.
7:25am: Lady C has her first breakfast of the day, Honey Nut Cheerios and milk. I sneak a donut, check my phone and watch a bit of the news.
Love this one from Timehop... more than 8 years ago, but still a great memory!
8:00am: I wake Miss A up for the first time. I start getting ready; change, wash face, brush teeth. Lady C digs through the drawers in my bathroom, finding lots of nail polish. Little J wakes up and comes to hang out. She loves to hang out in our bath tub. I have to go in to check on Miss A every five minutes until she finally got up.
11:40am: I pick up the girls from Kid Stuff and we head out.
12:00pm: We go to Target and while trying to keep Lady C occupied and in the cart, I don't take any pictures. Today I'm trying to stock up on essentials just in case baby girl decides to make her appearance early. My dad and stepmom are also planning to visit tomorrow so I pick up some groceries for dinner.
1:00pm: We're leaving Target. There is construction on the road home and it takes forever to get home. Lady C falls asleep on the drive, grrr!
3:55pm: The bus drops of Miss A. The kids from the bus chase the ducks and Miss A picks up the mail on her way home (across the street). I do some work on the computer, mostly bills and still trying to figure out how to change our address with a few companies. Miss A and Little J do their "homework." Miss A has a little assignment from her teacher and Little J works on writing her name. Little J does well with her long name, but has trouble with the letter S sometimes. Lady C builds with duplo blocks and plays with other toys in the living room.
4:30pm: Little J and Miss A go outside. Little J rides her bike. She loves that she can ride without training wheels now. They both dig around in the yard to and pretend to make food for a restaurant. Lady C decides to "help" with my computer work. Miss A and Little J come inside looking for a snack.

|She hates to wear her own shoes, yet loves to wear other people's shoes. So silly!|
5:40pm: E calls to let me know he's on his way home. I start dinner, and again Lady C decides to help. She has figured out the knobs on our doors, and loves to raid the pantry. There is very little I can leave on the bottom shelf now, and I frequently find boxes of mac and cheese and cheerios strewn around the house.
6:00pm: E is home! There's always a race to get the first hug from Daddy and today Lady C gets the first hug. She's really loving Daddy lately! When the big girls realize Daddy is home, everyone has to pile on.
6:50pm: I clean up from dinner and E takes the big girls outside to clean up the yard and have a fire. We just found out the builder is sending people to work on the yard Monday, so we want to get some work done in advance. I snuggle and play with Lady C, who is not very happy to be staying inside.
8:00pm: E and the girls come inside and I start getting all three ready for bed. Pajamas, teeth, diapers, books.
