[Day 4] All in a Day

Day 4: Bullet Your Whole Day

  • 8:15am: Alarm goes off for school. The race is on to get breakfast, get cute, get backpack and get out the door.
  • 9:10am: We did it! Out the door on time, in the car, and on the way to school.
  • 9:28am: Arrive at school, kisses and hugs.
  • 9:46am: Back home to an empty house.
  • 10:23am: Knock out blog post number 1.
  • 11:23am: Knock out blog post number 2.
  • 11:24am-12:55pm: Check the mailbox.
  • 12:57pm-1:03pm: Sit with a beautiful card for my birthday girl and token of love from an amazing mama friend on the other side of the country.
  • 1:06pm: Email amazing mama friend to show her just how much I appreciate her warm heart.
  • 1:07pm-4:15pm: Resume getting through season 2 of The L Word.
  • 4:45pm: Hit the bank and the grocery store.
  • 5:00pm-5:40pm: Sit in my car enjoying the sound of the rain (saving gas) in front of Emma's school.
  • 5:50pm: Pick up Emma and head over to the auditorium for the end of the year Aloha Potluck.
  • 5:55pm: Run into an old school Cal mama alum (I love to reconnect).
  • 7:15pm: The school staff hit the front of the stage to sing a group song, that none of them actually knew, even though they had the words right in front of them. Emma knew the song. Turns out that its a Rock Band classic. She puts the strained and out of touch teachers out of their misery by telling them that she knows the song. She grabs the mic and rocks the house.
And proud mama goes into paparazzi mode.

  • 8:15pm: Back home after an evening of fun.
  • 8:45pm: Because my kid is STILL hungry after a potluck of yummy cultural goodness, we settle in with big bowls of edamame and tall glasses of mixed berry smoothie.

And some Netflix, to which I feel asleep! When I woke up Emma was nestled beside me watching Spongebob Squarepants.
