A typical morning for our family, in elapsed time form:
5:30 am, baba wakes up and prays, then struggles to wake mama up.
6:00 am, mama wakes up and prays then goes back to sleep
6:30 am, baba takes baby and toddler( giving mama an extra half an hour or so of sleep)
blank (I have no idea what baba does during this time, I have assumptions but only he can fill the blanks).
7:30 am, baba wakes mama up in a rush( heʻs late for school!)
7:45 am, mama reluctantly wakes up and takes over the girls.
8:00 am, babaʻs gone, mama is listening to NPR, preparing breakfast, nursing a baby, washing some dishes from last night( sometimes) all at once.
9:15 am, baby fed and napping, mama and toddler drawing and cutting some paper shapes(we draw and cut Totoro, soot gremlins, and/or anything from "My neighbor Totoro". Currently a family favorite.
10:00 am, babysitter arrives, mama runs to try to clean, cook, shower, do laundry, nap..in the fastest two hours in the world.
12:00 pm, Baby sitter leaves, toddler naps, baby is up, mama is exhausted and realizes itʻs only 12 noon.
