In the last installment of Supermom 101 I wrote about my reflection on being a busy mum and how I used various apps to help schedule in all the various appointment and reminders which I need. This week I’ll be sharing with you a typical day at our house and how I tie in blogging and personal time into my busy schedule.
Taking care of the three of them is no easy task. All of them are hyper bunnies and once they start playing together they can certainly get pretty wild and sometimes play can get rather out of hand. It takes a firm hand to make sure that the kids toe the line and complete their daily routines/ tasks.
Here is the lists of task that I have to do daily.
#1– wake up, check my e-mails and set the list to do online be it new blog posts, reviews, hops or social media channels which I need to make my “rounds” in.( This is my me time too before everyone wakes up)
#2- Breakfast is set and the kids are woken up. They are supervised in getting dressed, having their breakfast and being ready for school.
#3– put the clothes to wash and take down the clothes that are already dry from the laundry area. Fold and keep the clean clothes away. Monkey boy and Tiger girl will help in keeping the clothes.
#4– prepare lunch for Monkey boy and tutor him/ check his homework before he leaves for school.
Monkey boy is in P2 this year so my focus is on building up his comprehension and composition skills for both English and Mandarin. He also learns the piano so I monitor and guide him in his preparation for the Grade 2 exam which he is taking this year.
#5– Car run sending Doggie boy to school and HB to work, grocery shopping.
#6- Complete blogging tasks, readings and other online work.
#7- Teach Tiger Girl and finish the rest of the household chores ( I get my me time if and when she naps in the afternoon)
Tiger girl is currently 21 months old and we are going through the letters of the alphabets, flashcards of in both English and Mandarin of common household objects. She is speaking in 3 -4 word sentences and I’m slowly building up her vocabulary.
#8- Prepare and cook dinner before fetching Doggie boy and R home.
#9- Meet up with R or friends for lunch/dates on scheduled dates.
#10-Teaching Doggie boy and supervising Monkey boy doing his homework for the day.
Doggie boy is in K2 this year so my emphasis with him is to get him ready for P1 next year. I’m brushing up on his vocabulary and comprehension skills in both English and Mandarin.
#11- Bedtime story reading with all the kids and games if there is the time.
#12- Me Time/Couple Time
How does your daily routine look like?
In the next installment I will talk about how to maintain focus and rhythm as a busy mom.
