my typical day as a stay at home mom (a film!)

when we started making little movies a few weeks back, i thought it would be fun to make a movie all about my typical day as a stay at home mom. i find the idea of routines and schedules and typical days endlessly fascinating, and i love seeing what other people's days are like. little did i know how hard it would be to actually have a typical day and film it too! ha! but no, actually it was lots of fun to make this movie and to "see" what my day looks like (in fast forward;). the funny thing is that while i felt a little hectic making sure that i actually filmed everything, the kids were strangely calm and happy this day, so you don't quite get to see the chaos that sometimes happens around here. ;)

i'm so nervous! i felt so silly recording my voice for this video! hope you like it though! :)

P.s. the cookies that i made for our afternoon nap/craft-time were these sugar cookies from hey natalie jean, and they really, really are THE best sugar cookie ever. they are perfect. i'm obsessed. like, i might have to make them again this week, even though it's really not sugar cookie time of the year anymore. go make them!

  4. B., Thank you so much for this. At a time when I was going through a SAHM-slump with all the mundane tasks that sometimes make me question whether I'm not really doing anything, I found your video very encouraging and motivating. Keep the posts and videos coming - I love it all! :)

    1. oh yay! i'm so happy to hear that! and yes, the mundanity is the hardest part of this job, for sure. that and no sick days;). but you are doing an awesome job and i am still trying to think of a way to get to see you more often. love you!
