The Macs » Blog

a typical {if there is such a thing} day

a little quiet time before my little man wakes up
breakfast…he always wants to eat the second we get downstairs
brushing those teeth (trying to keep him busy) while mama gets ready
reading some books…lately he only wants to read by himself
playing, playing, playing
playing some more…so glad mama FINALLY let him go outside
making my sweet farmer husband a lunch
eating lunch and making a mess
taking daddy his lunch…begging me to let him out of the car to see daddy
riding in the tractor with daddy
nap time = trying to get everything done that I need to before Levi wakes up
nap time over…ready to go again
daddy comes home…dinner at Uncle Loren and Auntie Anne’s
(not typical, but so nice to have someone cook for us)
a late night run through the sprinkler park
(also not typical, but so fun)
…and then my camera battery died.
So, there is a little peek into what a day around The Macs might look like.
Happy Monday!

  • canadianbakers - I’m always amazed at how much your Levi looks like our Levi – right down to “drinking” out of the pop cans!
    I don’t want to come across rude, but I need to mention – did you know that the AAP is recommending keeping baby rear facing in his car seat until he reaches the max limits (weight or height) before turning him forward facing? AAP is recommending 2yrs and 30lbs before turning forward – it’s 5 times safer for baby to ride rear facing!ReplyCancel
