This is what I've been doing for the past one month (and why I've been such an irregular blogger):
  • 5.45 am - Get V's milk ready. (Though she stopped with her bottle at 1.2 years, she still needs to start the day with a cup of warm milk. She uses a straw)
  • 6.00 am - Give V her milk and start on getting the house straightened out for the day
  • 8.00 am - Get V ready for school - brush, potty, bath, dress, breakfast, vitamins, pack lunch
  • 8.45 am - Drop V off at school and rush to work
  • 11.30 am - Leave to pick V up from school
  • 12.00 pm - Take V home and feed her lunch
  • 1.00 pm - Settle V down for a nap while following up on emails
  • 2.00 pm - Leave for work
  • 10.00 pm - Leave the office (the techie was going home for V's bedtime, though there were days when he couldn't make it and I had to fit that in as well)
  • 11.30 pm - Catch-up on work with the techie
  • 12.30 am - Relax with a book and cup of herbal tea
  • 1.00 am - Crash
  •  3.30 am - Get-up for a quick nappy change before crashing again (I have no intention of night toilet training till V's three)
Now that the new nanny is on board, this week should be easier *fingers and toes crossed*. Pray for me fellow mamas and bloggers.

How do you cope with a nanny/daycare/babysitter crises?


  1. Wow. I'm amazed you haven't lost your marbles doing that much. I hope your new nanny gives you some respite.

  2. Gosh, i can so relate-my baby boy turns two in March. I hope the nanny will enable you to get some much needed rest soon:-). Happy Monday. XX

  3. Mwa @ Fighting with the techie helps :-)

    Stacey @ Thanks. I think it just doesn't get easy till they are about 5-6 and can do some stuff on their own

  4. Certainly not staying up until 1 a.m. I hope you get some sleep soon.

    Thanks for popping by on my SITS day.


  5. Just poppin to say thank you for your lovely comments. Hope you have a great week! XX

  6. Oh my goodness. I'm exhausted just reading this. I hope things have gotten better!

  7. That is INSANE. You are a superwoman, girl. But even Superwomen must come back down and, um, SLEEP. I sure as heck hope you've solved the nanny issue by now. Take care.

  8. oh. my. GOD! Babe, I have new respect for you! One session at the gym leaves me exhausted and I barely manage to get myself a glass of milk afterwards. And you do all THIS and still manage to do more?!

  9. Than you my beautiful bloggy friends (a one school friend :-) ), You girlss are the reason I'm getting back on to the blogging bandwagon, starting this week. See you soon :-)


I love hearing from all of you....thanks for letting me know what you think
