Good morning! Several of my favorite bloggers have been doing these “A Day in the Life” and I find myself enjoying the glimpse it gives into how their home and family operations. So, I thought it would be fun to document a day in the life of the Lees. It will be interesting to look back someday and see just how much our routine did or did not change.
5:20 AM: Micheal’s alarm goes off. He hits the snooze button. I crawl out of bed and head to the living room to pump. I am normally borderline engorged in the mornings (thanks to an oversupply) so I pump before Emaleigh’s first feeding.
6:00 AM: Micheal leaves for work. I sip my coffee while doing my makeup and getting dressed for the day.
6:50 AM: Time to wake Joycelen up. She’s still groggy so I carry her into the living room, give her a glass of milk and let her watch an episode of her favorite cartoon.
7:05 AM: Time to dress Joycelen, fix her hair, brush her teeth, and load up the truck with everything we all need for the day.
7:15 AM: Drop Emaleigh off with my father-in-law to head to daycare. Drop Joycelen off with my sister-in-law to head to school. I head to the office.
7:45 AM: I arrive at my office building. I have 15 minutes before I need to be at my desk, so I use that time to check social media before heading in.
9:00 AM: First pumping session of the work day
9:00 AM: More e-mails, research, phone calls, and tackling the to-do list.
11:30 AM: Second pumping session of the work day.
1:00 PM: Back at work. Tackle a few more projects and file some paperwork.
4:45 PM: Start winding up my work day. Respond to a few more e-mails, make my to-do list for tomorrow. Say goodbye to co-workers
5:00 PM: I drive to CrossFit.
5:30 PM: CrossFit
6:45 PM: I get home from CrossFit. Kiss the girls & Micheal. Pump (Emaleigh had a bottle earlier).
7:15 PM: Emaleigh goes to bed.
8:30 PM: Give Joycie a bath while Micheal puts the finishing touches on dinner.
8:45 PM: Eat dinner and clean up kitchen.
9:05 PM: Put Joycie in her pajamas, read her a bedtime story and say evening prayers.
9:30 PM: Hanging out on the couch with Micheal watching SportsCenter.
10:00 PM: Shower and head to bed.
