Day in a life of.... mine

Rise and Shine

We are not early sleepers, neither are the kids which we will adjust next year before Aiden starts primary school. Daddy Darren wakes up and get ready for work by 8am while we are still in bed. He wakes us up with his goodbye kisses while we continue snoozing in our beds.

Ava wakes up twice in the night, and she sometimes finds her place in our bed in the wee hours. 

I will prepare their milk and have their uniforms ready for them to change into after they wash up.

Getting out of the House

Aiden is pretty independent at 5 year old. He is able to get ready for school all by himself, from drinking his milk, to rinsing his milk bottle, brushing his teeth and changing into this uniform.

We will have a quick snack for breakfast or pick something to eat along the way to school. On some days if I leave for meetings right after dropping Aiden and Ava in school, they will read or play with their toys while waiting for me to get ready.

Eventful journey to School

We often have to wait for Ava who insists on putting on her shoes independently. I wonder what’s with water puddles that the both of them enjoys jumping into, every single one on our way to school. And I hate it when they put on clean and new shoes.

We walk five minutes which easily drags to fifteen minutes to the bus stop, and another five minutes from the bus stop to school. We stop along the way to look closely at insects, plants and flowers.

When I am not in a rush to get to a meeting, we take our time exploring on the way to school. We talk about road safety and walk hand in hand to school.

Drop off at school is an easy affair, no tears. Aiden will be the more emotional one, asking if he can be the first to go home, every single day. 

On some days, we will have a photo session with the kids for the products we carry in PriviKids. This will take up the whole morning, ending with breakfast before I drop them off to school.

These days, a lot of coaxing is required.

Keeping fit

I try to exercise before I start my day. A run at the reservoir, or in the gym and some workouts at home. I take about an hour and a half and hope to keep this up!

On days I fetch the kids home earlier, we go for a swim and work out while having some water fun.

Work from Home

On days I work from home, I will review the past week performance, and work on our online store, and social media feeds.

Reviewing of new brands and ordering products for the stores are also done during the day.

Out in the Stores

I visit the stores most days, and will be focusing on merchandising displays, interaction with customers and bonding with our retail team.

Unwinding for the Day

I get home around 10pm. The kids naturally also go to bed later. We decide on an activity for the night which can be art and craft, reading, before we unwind and let them have their milk before bed time.

I will give them light massages which will lull them into a sleepy state.

Finally I get to shower and change for bedtime. With a warm beverage, I spend some time on the laptop, going through reports for the day and social media.

Bonding with the Husband

A quick catch up on our day, and plans for the week ahead. We are usually exhausted by the time the kids are in bed.

We have regular lunch dates now to spend more quality time together, without having to sacrifice time with the kids when we both get together with them.
