Today’s “Did Do” List

by Wendy Copley on April 22, 2009

Sink with dirty dishes

One of my all time favorite activity suggestions on the Rookie Moms website is to write a “did do” list instead of a “to do” list. My to do list is long, but my did do list on any given day isn’t too shabby. This is what I accomplished in the  first two hours I was awake (7:15-9:15):

  • Nursed Augie
  • Dressed Augie
  • Made breakfast for Wyatt
  • Made and ate breakfast for myself
  • Spoon-fed Augie smashed bananas mixed with prune juice
  • Made and drank two cups of tea
  • Checked my email
  • Packed Wyatt’s lunch
  • Assembled a Lego truck from the 13 steps of instructions
  • Washed the remaining dinner dishes from last night
  • Wiped the kitchen counters
  • Finished loading the dishwasher and started it
  • Cleaned smashed bananas off every nook and cranny the baby could find on himself and the high chair
  • Chopped a watermelon up for snacks during the day
  • Picked out an outfit for Wyatt and nagged him to put it on
  • Taught Wyatt how to un-button and button a shirt (again)
  • Styled and photographed a bento box photo
  • Dressed myself (I know how to button my shirt, so this went pretty fast)
  • Changed a giant poopy diaper (go prune juice!) and selected a fresh outfit for the baby
  • Loaded both kids into the car
  • Drove to preschool and dropped Wyatt off

What have you done so far today?

    Hmm. Well, I made coffee for myself.

    * Snuggled Robin the way he demands to be snuggled after waking up. If he doesn’t get fifteen minutes of snuggles in the morning (and after naps) he’s cranky all day.
    * Poured cereal for myself and Robin.
    * Spoon-fed Robin cereal out of my bowl after he decided that mine looked more delicious than his and climbed into my lap to get at it.
    * Made and drank coffee. Checked e-mail. Answered e-mail from our realtor about the house-hunt. Looked at housing listings. Chatted on the phone with realtor (all this during Sesame Street so Robin was occupied).
    * Picked up the bedroom and the living room
    * Swept the floors
    * Picked up the kitchen, swept and Swiffer wet-jetted the floors
    * Picked up and swept the bathroom and hallway
    * Ran the sweeper over the hallway rug
    * Picked up, swept and swiffered the bathroom
    (During all of the above Robin followed me around and “helped.” He was not very helpful, but it kept him interested and happy.)
    * Cleaned the bathroom sink and toilet. For this I put Robin in his playpen.
    * Made lunch. This consisted of throwing last night’s leftovers into the microwave.

    Now Robin is sitting on my lap while I type this. I’m trying to decide whether we should go out to the park now, or whether I should try and get him to take a nap first, hoping that it will be a little cooler in an hour or so. I really like the nap idea but Robin seems to have other plans.

    I’m exhausted just reading this. I walked the dog, drove dogs to play day, went to chiropractor, picked up docs from a friend at her school, went shopping. Shopping and lunch lasted until 2:00. Now I am resting up before going to get the dogs who will hopefully be really, really tired.
