A Day In The Life of A Working Mom

I've been thinking for a while to make something like "A Week in The Life", but I'm not sure whether I can do it. It does seem like a lot of work, and at the moment I feel like I'm really BUSY enough.

So well, today as I'm surfing the net, I read some entries about A Day In The Life of A Working Mom, and it's kinda inspire me a bit! So here it goes.. My day on a normal Tuesday. No photos, though. I haven't taken any photos today!


7:50 am
Pi woke up first (at 7:30am) and took a shower. When he's done, he woke me up for my shower. Kinda surprised that Caitlyn is still sound asleep at this point. She would normally wake up at 7:30am. Maybe she's very tired as she slept quite late last night (close to 11 pm!!) and we just returned from a short trip to Jakarta yesterday.

8:05 am
I finished my shower, and as I opened the bathroom door, Caitlyn was awake! (We really need to do something about that door. It is very noisy when we open or close it!) As usual, Caitlyn is the happiest just after she wakes up from her night sleep. She looked at me happily and smiled soooo sweetly. However when I'm away from her for a few more centimetres (I need to comb my hair and put on some moisturizers etc), she cried and looked at me anxiously, afraid that I will leave her. Luckily Daddy come to the rescue! He played with her while I'm finishing my morning beauty regimen.

8:15 am
I had my breakfast. Today's breakfast menu was chicken steak, it was quite nice. Meanwhile, Vio has just finished his shower and getting ready to go to school. Today is his first school day after a one month holiday. He refused to put on his socks, but after sometime, he's finally ready and go to school with Nai2. I kissed him before he went off. Today he brought "Spiku" cake that we brought from Jakarta as his snacks to eat at school. His school actually provided some snacks for the students, but the teacher mentioned that sometimes Vio refused to eat and will just sit there while other kids are eating.

8:30 am
Time to go to work! I waved and kissed bye-bye to Caitlyn, and surprisingly she didn't cry at all, and even didn't ask me to carry her! (She would normally do that every time I wave bye bye). Apparently she's going for a shower, and yes she loves bath time very much, so that explains why she didn't want me to carry her. I took MRT to Caldecott MRT (changing at Buona Vista), and checked my emails along the way. I'm really wondering why didn't I get smart phone sooner?? To think that I'm getting it only recently! Yeah I'm always one step behind when it comes to technology.. LOL..

9:30 am
Reach office! I switched on my laptop, washed my water bottle and took some warm water. There's nothing much for me to do in office, so I spent the whole morning surfing net and downloading digital scrapbook files.

12:00 pm
It's lunch time! I went to the Market, planning to eat my favorite sliced fish soup with ee mee. But today the queue was very long, so I ended up eating Mini Pot Noodle, which was also not bad. After that we had Belgian Waffle with Rum 'n Raisin ice cream in Creamery. It was deeeeellliiiicciiiiooussss... I think that they have the best belgian waffle in town! After ice cream, we went to a nearby mama shop to buy some baskets. I'm in the midst of organizing my ever-growing scrapbook supplies that are VERY messy now. I'm really hoping that I have a bigger space to store my items and to do my crafts! All I have is this small table (which top is already half-occupied by my papers), a small cupboard under the table that contains our photo albums, as well as scrapbook albums, etc, and a drawer to contain all my other stuffs. Now I also hang my items on the wall so that it's easier for me to get things that I'm looking for. When horizontal is not possible, go vertical! LOL!

1:30 pm
Back to the office again, and still surfing net and chat with a friend. This is the time when I read the entries about "A Day in The Life of A Working Mom", and I'm kinda inspired to write about today! So here I am now, typing all these at 4:50 pm.

7:00 pm
Reached home, and greeted with the sweetest smile of Caitlyn and hopeful face of Vio, saying "Something?" He always hopes that I bring him a little something from office, and if I did, he would be sooooooo happy. But on this particular day, I didn't get him anything. The two kiddos were having dinner (in front of TV), so I took a bath, then play with them for a while, then have dinner with pi. And followed by playing with them again until around 9 pm

9:20 pm
The 2 of them slept fairly fast today! Since both of them has slept, I'm free to do my hobby! Lately I'm into organizing my supplies and coloring stamped images, so I did just that.

10:15 pm
Pi and I watched How I Met Your Mother (Season 7). It's our favorite show of the moment! We watched 2 episodes. I think it's wishful thinking if we plan to watch only 1 episodes. It's confirmed that we will watch at least 2 episodes. The serial is just so funny and fun to watch. And it's only 20 mins each!

11:00 pm
We're feeling rather tired today (maybe coz it's the first day of work), so we went to bed early.
