Our weekends and more schedule type stuff!!


Our weekends have been a bit busy with flag football this season. The games are on Saturday, either in the morning or at noon with the hot Florida sun is beating down. I always enjoy my time at the games because I also get to chat away with my friend who's son is on the team as well. I've got to admit....I think I talk more than watch the game!! LOL We are having so much fun cheering Shiloh on. He has enjoyed playing. He is one focused little boy. :) This past Saturday he pulled 3 flags and our team won the game!! Yeah, Shiloh!!!

Now for a bit of schedule talk....Why are Mondays so tough. It seems like my Monday's are filled with things I have to catch up on. I have realized that I have to really watch every minute of my time. There is no wasting time. If I waste time on things not planned, then it comes back to bite me. I actually have to plan my days to the minute. Even on weekends. I remember those days of spontaneity; I can't afford time to do that anymore. This is hard for me, but the Lord is teaching me time management.

Here is a sample of my daily schedule up to dinner time - I say this with with "tounge in cheek" :) because I don't always have a day as the one below. This is what my ideal day would look like and sometimes looks like. We all need a day planned out and stuck on our refrigerator doors to remind us of what our day SHOULD look like. LOL!!!


4:40 Alarm goes off and feed baby (this all depends on how quick I get out of bed :)

5:00 My breakfast and God time (also depends on when I wake.)

6:15 dress, groom, and clean my room

7:00-8:00 Kids up (not all of them are quick to get up. this is when I get the little guys up)start Morning routine and chores

8:00 Breakfast and clean up after breakfast

8:30 Little boys go outside and play

9:00-11:45 Doing School with children. I rotate them around. I start with the youngest and
work my self up.

12:00 walk

12:30 finish walk

12:45 shower

1:15 clean up kitchen or do left over cleaning kids didn't do

1:45 Read to little boys and prep for nap

2:00 Feed baby

2:30-4:00 (during this time I have to fit in: Laundry, chores, check schoolwork, and personal computer time---still working on all of this. Alot of times one or more of these go
unndone. I am working to stay focused on this time when littles are sleeping)

4:30 Start dinner preparations (this might have to be moved to earlier and depends on what I am cooking that night)

5:00 Nurse baby (this depends on what time she wakes, I usually try to hold her off some if she is close to this time.)

6:00 Kids in from playing and wash up/ a child sets table

6:15 Have dinner done and ready to eat

6:30 Eat Dinner


This schedule also changes up a bit depending if I have to be out during the week. And if you are wondering what are the other times Ana is scheduled to eat---her feedings are around 7:30 or 8:00 am, and 11:00 am, 2:00 pm, 5:00 pm...pretty much every 3 hrs---except at night. She goes down for the night around 8:00 pm.


Ok...., so now I am looking at the time and realized I have not done one thing to stick to the above schedule. It is almost 2:30 pm and the little boys are still walking around and baby is crying, and I am finishing up this post right now because I have time to keep and children to tend to.

( Ana about 5 minutes old) (Here she after her check up--about 30 minutes old)   (Coming home!!  1 1/2 days old) We came home yesterday late afternoon, and I am lacking much sleep.  I really haven't slept since last Saturday.   She is nursing a lot right now to bring down my milk.  I've been nursing around the clock.  Almost every hour.  I am doing this because she has been hungry and I need my milk to come in as soon as possible.  I am showing signs today of it coming in.  She is not so fussy and more content.   It is so easy to forget about those newborn days.  It doesn't matter how many babies you have h

Meet Sweet Kara Faith

My sweet friend Nancy from Mom Just Like You , delivered sweet Kara Faith on January 8, 2010 at around 6:45 AM. Nancy's husband Stu calls me around 5:30 AM to let me know Nancy's contractions never let up and she was going to be delivering their long awaited miracle baby Kara. It has been an emotional battle these past 4 to 5 months for Nancy and Stu. Kara was diagnosed with Alobar HPE on the same day they found out they were having a baby girl, their 8th child, third daughter. Their heart was broken not knowing what the future held for them. Nancy leaned on the only source she had in her life: The Lord. I have been friends with Nancy for 5 plus years now (we met on MOMYS). When I found out Nancy was going to have a special baby, immediately my mommy heart was aching for my sweet friend. I went into deep prayer and intercession for them. I was grieving along with them, but deep down in my heart I knew God was and is Faithful. As I prayed one evening at worship nigh
