Start Cycle all over again....routine is life, you mess with my routine you mess with my life. The only things I don't do everyday is the laundry and baths. This was my routine on Friday June 19. I did this more for my benefit to see what I do all day long...seems like nothing ever gets done in my own head around the house. I hope to post one of these every once in a while to see how things progress. Oh well hope you enjoyed it...
Here are some pics plus a little video of Bumbo Time

If you are keeping your babies all fed, changed, and happy, then you are definitely getting a lot done! Not many men can do what you are doing!

Cute photos! My husband is at home with our 6 month old twins during the day (he works nights and I work days), I'm going to show him your list of daily activities. He's always said he doesn't know how someone with 3 babies does it!
