Inquiring minds want to know 😉 A day in the life of Tiara:
6am: Wake up, check my phone (I am NOT a morning person and screen time helps me get up) and text my husband.
6:05-7:05am: Get breakfast ready, eat and get us dressed and out of the door. I keep cold brew coffee in the fridge, the girls’ lunches are always pre-packed, their clothes are always laid out the night before. We eat eggs and green smoothies every day, brush teeth, brush hair and go!
7:05-7:45: Getting out of our building, into the car seats, on the road (traffic 😩) and to the school. FaceTime papi, lots of hugs and kisses.
7:45-8:10: Commute back home. Some days I will run errands instead of going home.
8:10-8:30: Coffee! I also make fresh oat milk and clean up after breakfast.
8:30-9:30: Read and write.
9:30-10: Breakfast #2.
10-11: Cook for later.
11-12:30pm: Clean up after my cooking mess, and clean random things that need cleaned in the apartment.
12:30-1: Have lunch, mess on my phone, text my man.
1-1:50: Have more coffee! Do more cleaning (why is there always so much to clean?? Oh, yeah. Kids 🙄).
1:50-2:20: Go get kids. In typical Island fashion, even though school is out at 2:15, it is a good day when they aren’t released to me after 2:20.
2:20-3:00: *reverse, reverse!* Hugs and kisses, getting into the car seats, FaceTime papi, on the road (traffficc!), and into our building.
3-3:30: Snack time (my kids are slowww eaters) and after school dishes (74 lunchbox pieces are so cute, until it’s time to wash them).
3:30-4:30: Kids’ time. They do what they want, I sit with them and try to inconspicuously pry out of them what has been happening in school.
4:30-5:30: Homeschool-y things: workbooks, reading, violin practice (very loosely practicing at the moment 😒).
5:30-7: Getting dinner ready and eating, slowly, together at a candlelit table, talking about our hopes and dreams 😍. Favorite time of the day!
7-7:30: The girls get ready for bed, have showers, and lay out school clothes while I clean up after dinner and make school lunch.
7:30-8pm: FaceTime papi, cuddles and goodnight!
I try to go to bed at 8pm as well (I’m so old lmao), but it’s usually more like 9 or 10. I’ll shower if I need to, talk to Uriah, have wine, a face mask, or whatever else. But I have terrible sleep and even if on paper it says “sleep from 8pm-6am”, I actually toss and turn and wake up all night (Fitbit confirmed 😒), so I do try to call it a night super early.
That’s a typical day. I was going to the beach in the morning, but my to-do list was growing. I was trying to work out, but my to-do list was growing. I was shaving my legs, but my to-do list was growing *sings SZA: “I’m sorry I’m not more ladylike, I’m sorry I don’t shave my legs at night.”*
More TMI in the next installment, everyone! ¡Buenas noches!
