Craig worked from home today since the bridges he normally takes into Dallas were icy at 5:30am on his normal commute.
I noticed something today about how we eat breakfast.


Start time: 8:00 AM

  • sit down at table, pour creamer into coffee
  • wipe Iz’s face off since she just ate
  • give her tupperware lid to play with
  • get up to make omelet
  • start omelet
  • Iz drops lid – give her a new toy
  • finish making omelet
  • put on plate
  • clean pan and spatula
  • start a load of laundry
  • walk by Iz’s room and notice her humidifier is still on
  • turn off humidifier and organize changing table
  • pick up her room and pick out her clothes for the day
  • put towel back into her bathroom
  • wipe down the sink and feel that the soap dispenser is getting close to empty
  • refill soap dispenser
  • walk back to table to eat breakfast
  • sit down – Iz starts to fuss
  • put her in the bouncy
  • sit back down – take a sip of coffee – it’s cold – put coffee in microwave
  • open microwave and realize it needs to be wiped down
  • wipe down microwave and decide since I have the sponge – I might as well wipe down the counter tops and the sink
  • sit down at table again – Iz get fussy
  • sing her a song and redirect her attention
  • sit back down to eat my omelet that’s now cold
  • Iz really fussy – probably time for her nap
  • lay Iz down for her morning nap
  • go back to table and sit down for breakfast
  • eat breakfast
