a glimpse into... Our Daily life [ couples looking to adopt / adoptive couple
Well, honestly, the girls wake up too early most days, I'd rather get at least 1 hour more than i get. They arise around 6:30 or 7 and we make breakfast while Aria chases the puppy around and Brielle watches a cartoon or does some coloring. Then we eat and laugh and get ready for preschool. Brielle attends a private preschool that my friend runs called the Learning Loft. She loves it and is doing very well in school. It's 2-3 days a week and only for 2 hours. I am glad for that b/c I'm not quite ready to let her go to half day or full day school yet.
While Brielle is off at School, Brandon is working on loans or Real Estate school online, Aria kicks it with me and we either run errands or go to the gym and get my sweat on! The playroom at the Gym is Insanely great too! It has 3 separate areas for the kids to play in according to age. A bounce house and slides and tunnels that looks like a small Children's museum!
On days that Brielle doesn't have school, we go for a jog in the double stroller, hit up the park and play there for a while or we go shopping! I LOVE to find good deals on matching outfits for the girls! We also have membership to the Discovery Children's Museum and to many other play facilities as well. We meet up with friends for walks and lunches and such too.
Brielle is such a good example for Aria when it's time to clean up around the house or in the playroom. We make it a contest to see who can clean up the most and the fastest!!!
Then, Aria ( and sometimes Brielle) goes down for a nap around 1 or 2 and Brielle has reading or drawing or whatever to do while i get some photos edited or hair clips made for my small businesses. When Brandon is home sometimes, me and Brielle will go for a bike ride around the neighborhood, play dress up in our playroom, we jump on the trampoline, in the summer we swim in our pool and Aria has no clue what us BIG GIRLS are doing during her nap! It's like a secret play time!!!
Then when Aria gets up, we make a snack and play in the playroom or a game or playdough or whatever before any classes start ( gymnastics, dance etc...) and then after our classes we make dinner and welcome daddy back with hugs. Currently we are taking a break from classes to get ready for our big move to CO soon!
I love making Italian food, Mexican food, Filipino food and anything yummy. After dinner we like going for walks together as a family when it's warm enough. We play chase the kids and tickle them or pretend daddy is a monster or a dinosaur or a puppy dog (Aria's Favorite) until it's time to get ready for bed. We share the tasks of getting the girls bathed and changed and then we read a book, say a prayer and give kisses and spin them around right into their beds!
I try and get some of the house picked up, some photos edited and snuggle with Brandon while we watch a movie or fold laundry and the like. (Ps. I hate folding laundry but, when i watch a movie it seems to go so fast!!!)
That's a glimpse into what we daily do!!!
