Currently I am staying at home (on maternity leave) with my newest baby boy Cruz.
Here’s a little peek into my daily life as a mum of a newborn & a toddler, and wife to my handsome husband 🙂
In the AM
At the moment, I’m on maternity leave and typically spend most of the night awake with our newborn cluster feeding and keeping him alive LOL!
So each morning, my husband gets up at 6am to get Leo ready and drop him at school at 6:30am before heading to work himself.
My day, doesn’t typically start until around 7am when I drag my tired ass out of bed, along with my cute little Cruz, to then migrate ourselves to the couch where we tend to spend most of the day 😛
Usually I’ve given Cruz a big morning feed prior to getting out of bed, so he will usually snooze on the couch whilst I make myself a cup of tea and some breakfast, do the dishes, tidy up the house a little and put on any loads of washing we have to be done.
If I hadn’t showered the night before (I tend to shower with Leo as it’s something I can still do just me & him 😀 ), I will *quickly* shower while Cruz is still sleeping.
After that, my day usually consists of loving all over Cruz, snuggling on the couch, catching up on my fave YouTube beauty babes (which doubles as research for my blog, win-win!) or just watching TV/movies etc.
I’m taking full advantage of just being with Cruz, letting him sleep on me, feed whenever he wants and just generally being a mum. I won’t be at home with him forever, so I’m being greedy with my Cruz-Mummy time at the moment <3
In between all the baby loving and couch-time I try to either write a blog post, or create makeup looks for upcoming blog posts whenever Cruz is asleep so I have heaps of content for you guys.
And of course, keeping you all up to date with things via Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Snapchat 😀
In the PM
I’m usually late at eating lunch as I get stuck on the couch under an adorable sleeping baby… So lunch usually occurs around 2pm – Which works out anyway as I make a snack for Leo who gets home with my mum just after 3pm.
There tends to be more dishes to do, most likely another load of washing, a quick kitchen tidy up and of course, prepping the cartoons for my crazy toddler to enjoy when he walks through the door.
5pm onwards is our bedtime routine. So dinner, clean up, shower, relaxing and bedtime for Leo between 7pm-7:30pm.
After he’s in bed, its time for mumma to tidy up the house after the tornado Leo has hit, do the dishes from dinner and finally settle to have a cup of tea.
During all of this mum life drama Cruz is sporadically cluster feeding, sleeping and pooping which just adds another dimension of fun to life 😛
And then we reset for the day, go to bed and get ready to do it all over again !! 😀
Other random daily activities I get up to usually include:
- Grocery Shopping
- Running Errands
- Catch Ups with my GF who is also on Maternity Leave (winning!)
- Online Shopping 😛
- Working on my Blog (OF COURSE!)
