It’s been a long time since i’ve done a day in the life post, so i thought today i would share a day in the life post.
Just a few notes before i get into the post.
*We are currently on our “summer break” from homeschooling, we do year-round homeschooling we start our school year in July and we end in April.
*No two days are exactly the same in my life, so keep that in mind.
*I’m a mom of 6 kids and we live on an acre homestead, out in the country.
*My husband had this day off of work.
*Most of my days are boring, filled with laundry and dishes.
With all that being said, let’s jump into this day in the life…
Tuesday ~ May 3rd, 2022
6:30ish wake up and drink coffee with my husband.
As we are drinking coffee together in the living room, kids start waking up and join us. By 7:00 all the kids are awake and our day begins.
After coffee, i start my day by cleaning up the kitchen and getting dishes switched around (unloading the dishwasher and reloading it with dirty dishes). While i’m doing this my youngest 3 kids are eating breakfast.
After dishes, i get a load of laundry going.
Then i start working on making breakfast for the older kids and for my husband. This morning i made them a cheddar bacon scone.
After feeding them, i switch around laundry. Then i get dressed and start folding laundry. The kids all have chores to do during this time.
Once i’m done with all that, it’s about 9:00 and i spend some time/play with my baby.
By 10:00 my baby is ready for his naptime, so my husband puts him to bed while i pick up the house. Once my husband gets the baby to sleep, he takes the other 5 children out shopping for Mother’s Day. I stay home with baby and keep rotating laundry. With us being such a large family there is always so much laundry to do.
Baby wakes up at 12:00 and my husband returns back home with the other children at about 12:30. They got lunch when they were out and brought me back some food. After feeding baby lunch and eating, i finally head outside to check on the greenhouses. This is one of my favorite parts of the day. I love seeing all the things growing.
After walking the property a bit and discussing future projects/plans with my husband, we go back inside and drink our afternoon coffee together.
The kids all have free time to play on their devices and i head out to the schoolhouse to do some work. My husband is with baby at this time, while i work for an hour or so.
After that it’s about 3:00, i go back inside and switch around laundry for the last time of the day. I put away any laundry i hadn’t got around to folding yet. I empty the dishwasher. I start to think about what i’m making for dinner.
I get started on making dinner.
After dinner, i clean up the kitchen and then just chill with the family while our stomachs rest. After about an hour/hour and a half, it is time to workout. My daughter likes to join me, while the rest of the family is just hanging out.
After my workout, i take a shower and then read in bed for awhile. Then it’s time to feed the kids a bedtime snack and then tuck them into bed. After getting the kids to bed, my husband and i watch tv for a little bit and then go to bed.
I hope you enjoyed this peak into my day, i know it was pretty boring. But i like my quiet and simple life.
