A Day in the Life- Writer's Workshop

I haven't participated in this for a while and thought I would give it a go again. So here is a typical day in my life.
Here is a typical day for of my life ( Thought this was such a neat prompt idea.):
4:30 am- Rudely awakened by hubby's alarm clock.

4:45am- Yell at Matt to shut alarm off and get out of bed.

5:oo am- Matt finally gets up and makes me get up with him so I can make his lunch.

5:10am- Crawl back into bed to try and get some sleep.

5:12am- Matt comes in bedroom and turns all lights on. He can't find his keys/wallet/belt. Makes me get up to help him find it. I find whatever hubby needed within seconds.

5:15am- Matt leaves for work. I try to fall back to sleep.

5:20am- Layne wakes up. I go get Layne and change his diaper and bring him back to bed with me.

8:05am- Walk into parents house and immediately get bombarded by crabby screaming kids.

8:10am-10:00am- Contemplate on how to make time go faster so all 8 crabby screaming kids can go down for a nap. Break up fighting of children. Attempt to do activities with kids but ended up nixing that idea when kids don't like any of the activities that you chose to do that day. Play with Layne as he is the ONLY non crabby child there.

11:00am- Make daycare kids lunch. Hear them complaining about not liking what was made for lunch or that so and so is looking/breathing/eating wrong. Wishing I could be at home playing with Layne or taking a nap.

11:30am- Have reading time with kids. Getting ready for naptime!!

11:40am to 2:oopm- I'm in heaven because all of the kids are sleeping or supposed to be sleeping. Hoping that a certain 4 year old doesn't decide to pee/poop his pants during nap time.
