A Typical Afternoon of a Stay-at-Home-Mom

In my last post, I wrote about a day of ours from the time we wake up until nap time.

In this post, I will attempt to write down what usually happens AFTER nap time.

Zoard is 3.5 years old and Assya is 9 months old. We are currently in Thailand.

15:00

Assya is sleeping on me in our bed.

15:10

I put Assya back in her cot but she only stays laying down if I pat her bum so eventually, I take her out.

I nurse her and I give her some balls to play with.

Imagine this for 2 minutes. Then this:

Zoard would normally, sleep in a proper bed but here on Koh Samui, we take what we get.

15:30

An excavator passes by. This is quite typical. HAHA

I let them both watch the excavator but the rule is, that Assya cannot go out on to the terrace.

On the side note: I totally forgot to take a picture of the excavator. Oops.

Pretend Playing starts

I am a crane called Crany.

Zoard is half excavator, half race car by the name of Brownie.

Assya is Little Crany.

We first, pretend to sleep. I have to say: “what time is it?!”
Zoard aka Brownie: “It is the time to wake up.”

Zoard starts dumping things on a floor since he has some kind of a part-time job as a dumper.

I help Assya entertain herself.

15:45

I start washing the dishes while I suggest to Brownie that he write me a postcard while I am away, doing some business by the stream.

16:00

I change Assya’s diaper.

I build a mini tower for Assya to knock over.

Zoard is talking like the speakers of metros in Budapest.

SONY DSC
I try to go back to doing the dishes but Assya has a nasty diaper rash and by

16:15

Assya becomes more and more fussy.

SONY DSC
I start carrying Assya and let her be naked.

She pees on the floor.

I clean it up and I reapply coconut oil on her bum.

16:30

SONY DSC
Zoard has to make a snack for himself and I. Oats and yogurt. He has it with raisins.

Zoard pretends to be tram 6.

I nurse Assya.

SONY DSC
I carry Assya in my hands.

16:50

I apply more coconut oil on her rash. (Now we know that the change in my diet caused the rash. She is being exclusively breastfed and I started eating 30-40 cherry tomatoes, every single day. Too acidy…)

17:20

My husband comes home and takes Zoard swimming.

Do you have a way of not entertaining your kids as much?!

xoxo,

See you on Instagram @zoardandassya!

Who is The Funniest Around You?

Kerry started a series of “A Day In The Life” where you can show the blogging world what you do all day. You can read all about it on Kerry’s blog.

Danielle if you are still looking for a fun project maybe this is for you!

I think one must post about her day at least once in great detail. This is what I did in this post:
https://kukolina.wordpress.com/2013/08/02/how-do-you-spend-your-whole-day-with-a-baby/

I failed to do the same with FEW words but nevertheless I think I did a mighty fine job:
https://kukolina.wordpress.com/2013/08/17/a-babys-diary-in-few-words/

I started taking notes and pictures following my day today. I think today can be called a typical one (but I will show off some other moments as well). I also thought about the weekly photo challenges I have been doing on Saturdays. I will sneak in an unsuspected son of mine and my outfit of the day. This was last week’s photo challenge that was actually posted on Saturday:

Zoárd and I make up the “late ones to wake up” around half past seven in our family of three.
As soon as I start taking pictures of Zoárd I cannot go unnoticed and he starts posing.

Image
Here is Zoárd with his tooth brush and if you want to know how you can tell his excitement that he can be the model of my pictures, look at his straight baby legs. HAHA

Image
I could probably do a whole post with Zoárd being happy about “picture time”.

Image
I sometimes take over 50 pictures of him and I  noticed that he makes sure that he is facing me.

Image
If I move because I want the lighting to be better he moves too. Face to face! – is the philosophy!

Almost, after an hour we woke up I had my breakfast which means I take out everything from the minibar. If you are wondering what things I did beforehand I will put it in a bracket just for You (cleaning poo; I made sure the play area is safe, I put away clothes, I made sure I am not naked but I did change my clothes later, I made a list).

Image
I have my breakfast in front of my laptop everyday while I read emails, comments etc.

Image
I dislike finding Zoárd on the sofa but that does not stop me from taking a picture…

I am fast forwarding otherwise this post will be as long as the strudel’s dough.

Image
Lunch is in the hotel’s restaurant after Zoárd’s first nap.

Image
I eat rice noodles with eggs and tomatoes OR (this is NEW…) with buffalo mozzarella and tomatoes.

Image
Zoárd and his tomato.

It is not nice of me to give a catchy title to my blog post and not tell you the answer to my question.

I think Zoárd is funny like all babies but I think he is starting to get us.

Image
He is comfortable about playfulness in public.

Image
He makes us smile, we make him smile.

Image
We are one happy family who met an awesome stranger at Starbucks. Look at the picture the stranger took of us? Not only did she know that I am not a fan of pictures showing our nasal hair, she took a really friendly shot of us.

In the afternoons Zoárd either holds on to my chair or he finds something that interests him.

PicMonkey Collage who is there
I am fascinated by his eagerness to stand up anywhere he stands a chance. HAHA

I go to the gym before dinner and the boys space out.

Here is my outfit!

Thank you for patience if you managed to read everything: every single word. You are a star!

Who is the funniest person around you? Could it be You?
