I’d been thinking about doing a post like this for a while and then I saw Trish’s and was spurred into action. I hadn’t planned on using so many photos but I loved her post so much that I was clicking my iPhone all day. Hers was a day in the life of a mom and maybe I’ll do that too, but this is a day in the life of Gage. It was last Monday. Gage has no typical day, each day brings different sessions or therapy or play time, so Monday was as good a day as any.
2 am-“Daddy!” Mom comes in a stays til 2:40 when she sneaks back into her own bed.
7:05 am- Daddy got me out of bed, took me to the potty, helped brush my teeth. Mom gave me breakfast (almond milk, cereal, strawberries) and let me watch a video from the library. It was Mr. Rogers.
7:41 am- Mom and I leave for school. I like to count school buses on the way. 12 today.
7:54 am School! See the cute girl in the cubby next to mine? Snack was raisins, pretzels and juice that mom sent.
10:30 am Mom picks me up. Mom hears how I “really like” Lila and how she didn’t appreciate my chopping her head with my hands. Hey, I thought she’d like it!
10:47 am- We’re home and I get to play.
11 am-My friend Betsy comes to play and teach me stuff.
11:50 am- Mom brings lunch and visits for 5 minutes
12:35 pm-Betsy takes me outside.
12:42 pm-We come inside because I hate the sound of that lawnmower next door.
1:05 pm-Betsy leaves. (Session with Betsy was a little rough. I tend to bite or hit after we’ve gone to BW-3. They say their fries are gluten free but they are not.)
1:15 pm- Mom makes me try a nap. I try really hard.
1:40 pm- Light on! Play time.
1:55 pm-Hit mom. Timeout. I blame in on BW-3 and gluten. At least that what mom says.
2:10 Leave for Occupational Therapy
2:15- Arrive at OT and play with kids in the waiting room.He was nice but I like Max when I come on Wednesdays better.
3:20 -Session over. I did a good job.
3:35- Arrive at the park for a snack.I wish Mom would quit taking pictures.
3:45- Nature walk/Scavenger hunt to the Community Center. I had to collect 6 blades of grass, 3 rocks, 2 flowers. 5 leaves.
4:30- Leave Kid Zone (There were no other kids today. I like it when there are other kids to play with.)
4:40- Get back to car.
4:55- Back home for some snacks (crackers) and trains.
5:30- Sesame Street and fun. It’s the pogo stick episode so we practice jumping and rolling 🙂
6:40-Timeout for spilling Mom’s drink all over the table. No playground tonight 😦
6:50- Done with dinner. Crying fit over not being able to go to playground.
7:45- Cookies and almond milk and books! Tonight I chose Cat Heaven, Huff and Puff, and We Work at the Hospital. We also read my Children’s Bible.
8- Brush teeth and change for bed.
