Our Daily Routine with a Toddler
In the morning when she wakes up, I change her diaper, and we would go downstairs to have breakfast and play for a while. As much as possible I don't give her milk just yet so that she would be used to having solids every morning.
After a couple of hours, let's say 2-3 hours, that's when Maco become moody or rather, sleepy. She would throw tantrum at everything; because I won't let her go out, because it's too hot already, I won't let her throw the TV's remote control, I won't let her stand on the sofa's edges, and so on. I swear, it would be about everything, even for making her drink her water. *insert straight face here* So when she turns grumpy, that's the sign that she needs to take a nap already.
When her father goes home at lunch and would peek in our room, more likely she would wake up. IDK how and IDK why, she just wakes up. Mostly her father wouldn't be near her yet, he would just open the door and boom, Maco's awake! I don't even know. Well, not when Maco slept late at around 12noon already, of course.
After she wakes up, she would gather her thoughts for a couple of mins or so (lol), and then we would go downstairs to have lunch. Rest for a while, and then she's up for bath time!
After bath time, I would let her play, while I blog or do some chores, milk time and boom, she's asleep again. When she's asleep in the afternoon, that's when I could do more things. She'd be asleep for more than 2hours at least, if she wakes up after just an hour or two, expect her to sleep again around 4 or 5 in the afternoon.
At night, we have our dinner around 7:30-8:00 in the evening. We usually wait for her father so we'd have dinner together as a family. After dinner, Maco would play, walk outside - we'll just let her do her thing downstairs. Around 9 in the evening, that's when she would take her bath. Her father give her a nice warm bath at night because it's too hot now-a-days, and to freshen her up.
After her bath, we'd change her into her jammies, and then she'll play some more in our room. Lately though, I noticed that she's so fond of her books, and of course I love it! She would get her box of books which was a gift from her Tita Tin, and would hand me one of the books, show me the pictures and it looks like she's waiting for a story - and of course, I tell her stories that are mostly about the animals on her animal book! And then, she's down. Her sleeping time is usually 11pm-12mn. Yes, that late!
Sometimes, when my little one fell asleep already that's when I turn on my laptop and blog away. But mostly, I would be too tired to do so. Hehehe!
How about you mommies, how's your daily life with your little one? :)
