hmm ok! i'll go first:

work day: wake up at 4:30am. shower, put on make up, attempt to do hair. leave by 5:15. work from 5:30am to 5:30pm. come home and fix dinner. feed/bathe the kid that needs a bath that night. put kids to bed. listen out for LO, tend to LO as needed. try to find time to relax and *maybe* do something with DH....this last part depends largely on how cooperative LO is being. sometimes i get no down time and just have to go to bed. i aim to go to bed around 10pm. rinse and repeat if the next day is a work day.

non work day: wake up for whichever feed is mine...DH and i take turns with overnight feeds on my days off. wake up for good by 10am when we get DD1 up. feed/play with/etc. DD1 until about 1:30 and put her in for a nap. during the whole day I am aiming to take the bulk of LO's feeds and care to give DH a break. 5pm--wake/get DD1 up for dinner. feed/play with/etc. until 7:30pm and then potty/bath (if needed)/toys (if time)/brush teeth and hair/bed. again the rest of the evening's goal is down time/relaxing with DH but this all depends on how cooperative LO is.

somewhere in all of that i try to do housework. we are also in the process of OPERATION ANNHILATION to rid our house of recent bug activity. we are completely gutting each room and scrubbing it to the hilt. then spraying the crap out of it in hopes we won't need an exterminator.

fun facts! my DD1 has decided that it's time to transition to a toddler bed...she climbed out of her crib today :x so tonight i have to toddler-proof her room as best as possible and hope for the best. she is special needs and also enjoys pulling off her diaper and smearing her poop everywhere...i am very worried about her destroying that room!

on top of all of this...i have hemmorhoids, an anal fissure, and stitches that aren't healing properly around my rectal area.

so...yeah...i have a lot on my hands right now. but this is my schedule at the moment!

Mon-Fri wake up at 630am. Get ready for work and get coffee and whatever else made i can before Trinity wakes up. Get kids up and dressed/fed. at 730 call my boss for that days work(if there is any) and if no work i try to start a load of laundry. Feed Trinity,burp and if shes calm/asleep set her down to get snack time for the girls. Go pee and put laundry in dryer. Feed Trinity, burp and rock her to sleep. Lunch time. Feed Trinity. Nap time for the girls, sometimes Trinity will nap here too so i can either lay down or if i cant sleep i do dishes or finish laundry. Feed Trinity. Girls get up and start figuring out dinner. Referee the fights between the girls all day long because we're having some terrible twos with DD2 and she likes to hit/bite. Anyways, vacuum carpet or sweep and mop the kitchen, which ever is in dire need of it more. Feed Trinity. Make dinner. Feed Trinity. Bath time for everyone. Feed Trinity, put girls to bed. Then this is normally Trinitys wide awake time. When im exhausted as hell. By about 10ish she normally(not always) goes to sleep. So then i get to shower, catch up on a meal i probably missed that day,get on the computer, or just lay there and watch a lil tv and by 11 crash. Get up about 1ish to feed Trinity, sometimes she goes right back to sleep, sometimes she wants to be up for an hour or two. Feed her again about 3am and 5am and then up at 630. Some days include trips to walmart/WIC office/Drs office. Those days are hell because the children don't think they have to listen to mommy in public for some reason.
The only difference on the weekend is not having to get out of bed at 630. Might be able to pull of staying in bed til 8am.

Thanks for starting this over here, too. I prefer this forum to the Google Group!

Oh, and as soon as we get a schedule, I'll let you know :P Our recent four day trip to Texas has blown any semblance of a schedule right out the window anyway :D I'm sure things will level out a bit once I'm at work and DD & DS are at daycare. They're miracle workers there!

At 4 weeks, Molly was 9 lbs and 19 3/4 inches. That was the last time she was checked and that was two weeks ago, so I'm assuming she's over 10 lbs now. She definitely feels a lot heavier, lol.

And here's how our day goes...

3:30am wake and feed
Nap
6:30am wake and feed
Nap
8:30am wake and feed
Nap
10:30am wake for the day and feed

Then feed every two hours until 6pm.
She'll sleep for 15-20 minutes here and there, 45 minutes if I'm lucky. Usually a total of 90 minutes from 10:30-6:00.

6:00pm. Feed, then every 3 days bathtime.
Short nap.
8:30 or 9:00pm wake, change into pjs, feed, then bedtime. She will usually sleep from 9:30pm-3:30am without waking.
