A day in my life

A day in my life

Huggies asked me to document a day in my life. If you’ve ever been interested in really knowing what happens in my vida loca, here it is:

5:20 a.m. – Baby woke up. Put him back to sleep.

6:00 a.m. – Packed a little food for the hubster. Note: Need to do some grocery shopping.

8:20 a.m. – Get the baby and change him. We ran out of Huggies diapers, so I put Huggies Swimmers on him. Note: Need to buy diapers.

Serve the baby his morning snack and put the kids’ laundry into the washer. Separate the toys from the clothes. Pick up around the home, vacuum and stall the kids some more.

9:45 a.m. – 2 mile run on the treadmill. Jump in the shower. At some point, I remember that I left the treadmill on so I have to run out of the shower – with shampoo on my hair and soap on my body, and turn it off before the baby gets a chance to climb on it and attempt to run on it.

11:05 a.m. – Brew my first cup of coffee on the Keurig (my favorite machine!).

11:41 a.m. – First time I actually get to taste my coffee. Make breakfast for the kids. We were running very low on food so the baby ate some baby pineapple and a quesadilla. Made some quesadillas for my 4.5 year old and added hatch chiles to mine.


12:13 p.m. – Drive to Kohl’s to pick up some sunglasses and to Sprouts for some groceries. Everything was extra cheap because it was double-ad Wednesdays.

1:49 p.m. – Finally get home. Bring all the groceries into the home along with a sleeping baby who is pretty much like a cat and all his weight is on my arm.

2:03 p.m. – Sit down at my computer to blog. Continue drinking this morning’s coffee.

2:35 p.m. – Baby wakes up from nap. Change him into another Huggies Swimmers. Pick up my nieces and my mom and take them to Walmart to shop for items for their Cinderella party. Buy more Huggies Snug & Dry diapers.

5:53 p.m. – Get home after dropping off my mom and my nieces.

6:36 p.m. – Didn’t have time to cook dinner so we buy an elote topped off Mexican-style. Mayonnaise, butter, Parmesan cheese, chile, salt and lemon – $1.50.

7:35 p.m. – Give the kids a shower and put the baby down to sleep.

8:17 p.m. – Sit down at my computer and continue to drink this morning’s coffee. I stayed up until 2:30 a.m.

Needless to say, Huggies wipes played a role in our crazy life. It was there to wipe up messes and butts, and the diapers kept my baby nice and dry – even when I used the Swimmers. My oldest son uses the wipes mostly for cleaning his toys and his feet after he had been playing outside, barefoot. Huggies baby wipes come in real handy and we use them often, as you can see:

Like Poncho de Anda, we found the new and improved Huggies Natural Care Wipes to be great on cleaning little chubby hands and faces because they are gentle and fragrance-free for soft baby skin.

p.s. Notice that I never said, “put laundry in the dryer” in my timeline – that’s because it never made it that far. I had to re-wash it the next day.

    That was awesome! Love how you're able to adapt to where the day is taking you. I have to rewash clothes all the time.

    Any day with an elote is a great day for me!

    Your day sounds like my day a lot of the time minus the running part. I need to come up with a better exercise routine. I'm in bad shape.
