A Day In The Life...


I have read a few posts by other bloggers written from the view of their kids.  Today I thought I jump on the band wagon and share what Alyssa's typical(ish) day is like (from her point of view).

Sometime around 8am:
Yawn.  That was a good sleep.  Is that the TV? Lynden's up!  Yay {insert happy noise}oh look, Mommy!  Here mommy, give dolly a hug, you like dolly.  Where did my blanket go?  There it is.  Ok, I'm ready to go.  Up up up up!  Hi mommy!  I missed you.  Milk?  Ya milk!  I'll go sit on the couch and wait for you. 
Hmm... I wonder what's taking her so long, she must need my help, I'll go check on her.  Why are you getting 2 cups?  I only need 1.  Ya milk!!  Shoot, my spot on the couch is getting cold I need to get there fast before Lynden gets it.  Hey Lynden!  What are we watching?  Stop touching me, that's my milk, stop taking the blanket {insert appropriate whining noise to get Lynden into trouble}  Ha ha, you got in trouble. 

8:30am: 
Mommy says I need a diaper change, I think not.  But I don't want her to stop changing my bum so I'll let her think I'm agreeing.  I'll walk up to her and then run away, hahaha, I'm so funny! {insert giggle} Look mommy's got a toy, I must have it.  Hey, you tricked me.  Ooh, maybe I did need a bum change.  Aren't my "toow-s" cute?  I like it when mommy kisses them, hey, you missed this foot.  Good thing I reminded her.  Hey mommy, I can throw that out for you, please, please, please?  Yes!  I'm going to run so she doesn't change her mind. 

8:40am:
Look, Lynden has cars, I want to play. 

8:35am
FOOD!  I'm starving.  How can I climb up into that tall chair?  Mommy! Up!  Ya, I'm in my chair... wait a minute, where is my food?  {insert appropriate whining noise to let mommy know I'm not happy about waiting for food}.  FOOD!  Must inhale.  Oh this is so good.  You know what might make it taste better?  If I squish it.  Yes,  much better.  More, more, more!  No!  You cannot help me, don't help me.  No, I don't want any food.


9am
I like getting my hands washed.  I wonder what that cloth tastes like?  I'll lick it when she's washing my face.  Yep, good!  Down now please.  I bet I can get the cars before Lynden.  Hey, where did mommy go?  Oh, she's still in the kitchen.  Hey!  She's unloading the dishwasher, I should help her.  I'll put the forks away, I like forks. 

9:15am
All done.  I don't know why mommy keeps opening the dishwasher it's empty.  Oh look a fork!  {insert unhappy cry} Why can't I put it away?  {insert unhappy cry} Why can't I put it in my mouth it tastes good? {insert unhappy cry} I don't want to leave the kitchen.  Hey, toys! Lynden, look, toys!

9:30am
Mommy's telling Lynden to get dressed, I hope that means I get to get dressed too.  Yes!  I like my clothes.  I'll sit and wait for her.  What is taking her so long?  I'll put on these shorts while I wait for her.  Mommy didn't like my shorts.  I can put my arms up, yay!  A shirt.  Pants too, awesome!  Socks?  Yes, here are my "toow-s". 

9:35am
Mommy's getting dressed, I should go help her, I'm a good helper.  I want to play on your bed.  Push me so I fall over {insert giggle}.
Hey, are you going into the bathroom?  Are we having a bath?  No, ok, I'll grab some bath toys.  But I don't want to put them back {insert appropriate whining noise}.  Hey, you guys are brushing your teeth, I want to brush my teeth.  Up!

9:37am:
I'm such a good teeth brusher.  Hey Lynden, let' play!

9:40am:
Mommy and daddy talk about when Lynden was my age and wouldn't say "mama", he'd say "mmmmmmdada" or just "no".  I think that sounds like fun; I'll call mommy "daddy".  Hi daddy.  Hee hee, I'm so funny {insert giggle}

9:45am:
Hey mommy, why are you in the kitchen again?  Hey, my cup, I want, I want, I want {insert appropriate whining noise}.  But I want {insert crying}.  FOOD!  I'm starving, I want, I want, I want.  {insert grunting noise}.  But I want {insert crying}.

9:50am:
Walk!!  I love walks.  Where are my shoes?  I like my shoes.  Why is Lynden going to the bathroom?  Are we having a bath?  No, ok, I'll grab some bath toys.

9:55am:
Are we going downstairs now?  I like sliding down stairs.  Where are my shoes?  Weeeeeeeee.  I like sliding down stairs.  Look, mommy has my shoes.  Here, I'll sit and give you my "toow-s".  Yay! Shoes!  I like my shoes.   Can I go in the stroller?  Yes!

10am:
Yay, we're going for a walk.  I can't wait.  I like it when mommy goes fast, and over bumps, and around corners, and when the wind blows... wait, where's mommy?  There she is! 

10:15am:
The library, I like the library.  Why are we sitting on the floor?  I want to sit in mommy's lap too, move over Lynden.  Yay, I'm sitting in mommy's lap.  Music?  I like music.  I should stand up and dance.  Song's over?  I'm a good dancer, I should clap.  More music?  This is awesome!

10:45am:
Where are we going now?  Ooh, chairs, I like chairs.  I can climb up them but mommy says I should look at books.  I'll take one to keep her happy.  I should "read" at that table, so I'll climb up the chair and sit to look at the book.  Ok, flip pages, I have to "look" like I'm looking.  Ok, done, time to climb down and get another book so I can climb up again.  Hey, what's Lynden playing with?  I like toys.

11:30am:
Another walk, yay!  More bumps and my cup!  Good, I'm thirsty.  FOOD!  I'm starving!  Hey, where's mommy?  Phew, there she is.

11:45am:
Home!  Lynden's asking about the flowers maybe mommy will get the hose... Yes!  I want out, I want out, I want out {insert appropriate noises}, yes!  I want to play with the water, it's kind of like a bath but with my clothes on.  Mommy, let us run through it, please please please.  Yes!!!  Lynden chase me.  Ok, I'll chase you.  This is the best!

12pm:
I don't want to go inside {insert appropriate whining}.  Hey, I'm naked, cool!  Can we go upstairs?  Yay!  I like climbing upstairs. 

12:05pm:
Mommy's trying to change my bum again but I don't want to.  I'll run away for a bit.  Look, mommy's got a toy, I want!  Another trick. 
Time to get dressed again?   Yes! I like my clothes. I'll sit and wait for her. Look at those pretty clothes.  Socks? Yes, here are my "toow-s". 

12:10pm:
FOOD!  I'm starving.  How can I climb up into that tall chair? Mommy! Up! Ya, I'm in my chair... wait a minute, where is my food? {insert appropriate whining noise to let mommy know I'm not happy about waiting for food}. FOOD! Must inhale. Oh this is so good. You know what might make it taste better? If I squish it. Yes, much better. More, more, more!  No! You cannot help me, don't help me. No, I don't want any food.

12:30pm:
I like getting my hands washed. I wonder what that cloth tastes like? I'll lick it when she's washing my face. Yep, good! Down now please. I bet I can get the cars before Lynden.

12:35pm:
I want to watch a show but I can't figure out how to turn the TV on like Lynden does.  I go to where he goes but it doesn't work.  I'll bring mommy the remote.  Here mommy.  Yay!  A show...yawn...

1pm:
Mommy is asking where dolly is... where is dolly?  There she is.  Where's my blanket?  There.  Nap time?  Thank goodness, I'm sleepy.

1:02pm:
I like my music sea horse, I'll sing with it.  La la la... I wonder how much of my blanket I can get in my mouth?  I'm sure I can get more than...zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

3pm:
Yawn. That was a good sleep. Is that the TV, Lynden's up! Yay {insert happy noise}oh look, Mommy! Here mommy, give dolly a hug, you like dolly. Where did my blanket go? There it is. Ok, I'm ready to go. Up up up up! Hi mommy! I missed you. Milk? Ya milk! I'll go sit on the couch and wait for you. 
FOOD!  I'm starving.  Wait, why does Lynden have more than me?  Give me!  {insert appropriate whining}

3:20pm
Hmm... mommy's calling my stink butt and wants to change me again.  I'll run and make her work for it.  Hey, mommy's got a toy, I want.  Drats, tricked me again.

3:30
The phone is ringing, I should get it.  Here mommy.  Mommy says daddy's on his way home so Lynden needs to clean up, I should help.  Oh wait, I want to play with that toy, and that one, and that one, and that one...

3:35pm:
Deck time, I like playing on the deck.  Especially when all the doors are open and I can go around and around and around and around

4pm:
DADDY!!!  Come on, come upstairs faster.  I want to say hi.  Hi daddy!  Look at all these toys

4:30pm:
Mommy's in the kitchen again, why aren't you getting me food, I'm hungry.  Mommy stop and pay attention to me.  Oh daddy's calling me, hi daddy, come see mommy in the kitchen, no, ok, I'll go get here for you.  Mommy... {push on mommy's legs}, hey, that was fun.  I'll go around, and around, and around.  Oh, daddy's calling me again, hi daddy!

5pm:
FOOD!  I'm starving.  How can I climb up into that tall chair? Mommy! Up! Ya, I'm in my chair... wait a minute, where is my food? {insert appropriate whining noise to let mommy know I'm not happy about waiting for food}. FOOD! Must inhale. Oh this is so good. You know what might make it taste better? If I squish it. Yes, much better. More, more, more!  No! You cannot help me, don't help me. No, I don't want any food.

5:30pm:

6:30pm:
Why is mommy in the bathroom?  Do I hear water?  BATH!  Finally.  How quickly can I get undressed.  Quick, help me.  I want in!

7pm:
Mommy, I want out of the bath now.  Show? Milk? Yes please!  FOOD!  I'm starving.  Wait, why does Lynden have more than me? Give me! {insert appropriate whining}

Mommy's changing my diaper; I'll let her this time.  Pajama time, I like pajamas.  Teeth brushing, yes.  I bet I can get to the bathroom first.  Up!
