My Mornings

Many people ask "What do you do all day at home?"  Well, I wanted to illustrate with pictures what occurs throughout the day, but after 9:30 a.m., I was already so tired that I gave up.  So, here are pictures from my morning and maybe I will show you another time what the rest of my day looks like.

6:30 a.m.- I actually set my alarm for 6 a.m. because I'm really productive in the mornings, but I usually wake up at 6:30, an hour earlier before the little one wakes up, and fish through my sea of vintage to see what I should list and photograph for the day.

(This is only 40% of my vintage)

7:30 a.m.-Jonah wakes up and we proceed to play in his room for at least a half an hour. Usually, it's playing with trains, puzzles, or reading books.  Then, he goes downstairs and watches Sesame Street for about 1/2 an hour.

8:45- I proceed to making breakfast for the both of us.  He normally has yogurt, scrambled eggs, and mandoo (korean dumplings).  I know mandoo is an unusual choice, but he insists on it every morning.  I rotate the eggs with toast, hash browns, fruit, or turkey sausage.

9:00 a.m.- I proceed to clean up any mess made while feeding him.  This day was particularly difficult because after half the yogurt splattered across my carpet, Jonah then spilled all his milk, wet his clothes, and then had a nosebleed. 

So after all that, I forgot about taking pictures.  Maybe I will come back another post and document what I do from 9:30 a.m.-2 a.m. 

This post may be boring to some, but I know the moms out there understand. :)  Anyhow, despite difficult mornings, I still love being a stay at home mom that runs an etsy shop.  Amen.


  1. I love it! Not boring at all! Can't wait to see what you do the rest of the day. P.S. You're awesome! I get up at 8 when Olive does :)

    What an interesting peek into your morning Anna ~ I am in awe at that rack of vintage you have. It would be so much fun to play with clothes each day!

  3. Oh, Anna--I can't imagine doing what I do with a small (or large ) child in tow! You're superhuman in my book.

    I do love this post. And am jealous of Jonah's breakfast!

  4. Hahahaha.... Kids, gotta love 'em. I work with two-year-olds and I know how much of a hassle the clean-up and prep-work can be. Totally worth the love.

    Cute blog here. I am envious of your almost-excessive vintage collection. =]
