Not Your Typical Four Eyes And A Day In Our Life.

Tracking Pixel
I'm not going to lie. Being a stay at home mom can get a little monotonous after a while. Imagine doing the same exact thing day in and day out every single day for days on end. I'm not just talking about doing the same things but also eating, singing playing the same things over and over and over again, day in and day out. Sounds like some kind of awful, doesn't it? But it's true. If your stay-at-home days look anything like mine then please, raise your fifth-time reheated mug of already cold coffee high in solidarity. 

Not quite sure what I'm talking about? Here, take a glance at just a snippet of our days here in the M household: 

It's 7am and I'm startled awake by two toddler dictators demanding breakfast. Since one of them is still well within the confines of his crib, I can only hear the incessant, "Mama? Mama? DOWN? MAMA?" as opposed to his brother's requests which are accompanied by frequent pokes to my eyes, nose and ears. Half awake, I wrangle their bodies into underwear, diapers and day clothes. Somehow I manage to choose the wrong striped shirt, a wild affront to my three year old. Small fire extinguished, we head downstairs to start our day. 

By 8am, waffles are toasted, bananas sliced and I'm granted five whole minutes to sit down and enjoy my coffee which I completely forgot to brew. I start the coffeemaker and just as the warm aroma of Life begins to fill my kitchen, breakfast has literally done to the dog and I'm being summoned to release the heathens from their confines at the table. 


Many thanks to the 9am morning cartoon lineup and an entire box of baby wipes which has been lovingly thrown throughout the family room, the toddler dictators are pacified long enough for me to sit down and sip my coffee. Mmm, the taste of sanity. 

By 10am, we're on our way out the door for the first of two play dates we have scheduled today. Unfortunately I haven't had time to shower which means I'm extra thankful for my brand new Lookmatic eyeglasses which not only draw attention away from the bags underneath my eyes, but also add an air of "Look, I'm really trying" to today's play date ensemble. Even though these particular frames are a bit outside of my comfort zone, I love that they're a bit hipster-trendy and make for a great accessory to any outfit from yoga pants and sweatshirts to leggings, cardigans and scarves. 



I'm always secretly intrigued by how other moms spend their days. Want to know how we typically spend ours? Maybe you want to know more about my awesome new eyeglasses and how you can score a 20% off coupon on your next Lookmatic order. Or maybe you just want to enter an awesome giveaway for the chance to win over $700 in eyewear and an iPad mini.

  1. As a lifetime glasses wearer I am always on the hunt for discount glasses so I can change my look. Interested in learning about Lookmatic. I am still struggling with someone filling the prescription correctly.

  2. You are rocking those glasses! I can see where your day would get monotonous. I work from home, so I'm home all day. It can definitely get monotonous, but I am very much a home body!

  8. Oh thank God I'm not the only one who reheats my coffee 5+ times a morning! I'm currently getting ready to brew my second cup of the day (at 11 AM) and I know as soon as I turn on the Keurig, Marleigh will wake up from her nap! Here's to hoping I'm wrong...! ;) xo

  11. Love those fabulous frames on you and love your Day in the Life description! (I work in an office five days a week, which can also be quite monotonous, and find myself wanting more and more to stay at home. Grass is always greener, I suppose?)
