The Day in the Life of a New Mom

8J6SO4AGN0

The last time I posted a blog entry, it was Anne Frank’s birthday. Nearly two weeks later, I am posting again. Looking back over the past two weeks, I am in awe. Has it really been two weeks? It has honestly went by too fast. I meant to post more frequently this month but between the feedings and the diaper changes and sleeping, I haven’t had the time to log onto my blog and post.

So, this time around, I’d like to do one of those “a day in the life” things. I know that this type of post isn’t anything new. In fact, it almost borders on the cliche and even boring. But, hey I’m a first time mom. This is all new to me.

So, without further ado…

(note: all times are approximate as are feeding & changing times. I feed my baby on demand).

8:00 a.m. Wake up. Change diaper. Feed baby.

9:00 a.m. Put baby to bed.

9:30 a.m. Eat breakfast. This is usually cereal because it is easy to make.

10:00 a.m. Change diaper. Feed baby.

11:00 a.m. Put baby in either her crib or her bouncer. Check Textbroker for any writing jobs.

12:00 p.m. Finish writing assignment on Textbroker. Feed baby. Change diaper.

1:00 p.m. Eat lunch. Usually this is a sandwich.

2:00 p.m. Feed baby.

3:00 p.m. Complete another writing assignment on Textbroker. If there isn’t one, then wash dishes or vacuum.

4:00 p.m. Feed baby. Change diaper.

5:00 p.m. Eat dinner. This is usually a hot meal.

6:00 p.m. Feed baby. Change diaper.

7:00 p.m. Do another writing assignment on Textbroker.

8:00 p.m. Feed baby. Change diaper. Put her in her pajamas. Dim the lights. Start getting her ready for her bed.

9:00 p.m. Watch something on Netflix or YouTube. Like Orange Is The New Black (Love love love the new season that just came out).

10:00 p.m. Feed baby. She falls asleep. Put her in her crib. At this point, I will also go to sleep as well.

2:00 a.m. Baby wakes up. Change her diaper. Feed her.

3:00 a.m. Go back to sleep.

7:00 a.m. Feed baby. Change diaper.

And it starts all over again.

So, that’s basically it.

If you’re a mom, tell me how you spend your days. How’s the mommy (or daddy) life?

Takin’ it one day at a time

So, apparently the hit Netflix show “Orange is the New Black” season 3 is going to be released this summer. I’m super excited and eager to catch up the characters that I have grown to love, such as “Crazy Eyes.” I’m glad to hear that the character Brook Soso, who was introduced in Season 2, will be returning. She’s young and she’s mixed. She reminds me of me, though I’m not nearly as talkative as she is.

I think the reason why I love “Orange is the New Black” so much is because the characters are so relatable. No, I haven’t been to jail or prison. But I feel as if the characters are being real and true to themselves. In the episodes, the women gossip, talk, dance, have sex. There are no inhibitions. Anything goes. The women aren’t pretending to be a famous actress or singer or aspiring to win the lottery.

They are real women, trying to get by. They are taking it one day at a time. And I think that is something that we can all strive to learn.

It is important to live for the moment. Life is short. Don’t waste time thinking about what could have happened. Or what will happen. Live for today and be the best that you can be.
