31 for 21, Day 22: a day in the life of maya

almost every night i go to bed wishing i had more time, feeling like i could have done more and making lists for the next day. i'm finding there is a fine line between getting things done around the house, doing things for maya's education and rest. many times i have to remind myself not to feel guilty when i do get some time for myself. i guess i thought i would have more time to do project after project at home once i became a stay at home mom...but than again i have a 20 pound being in my company from morning to night.

when my husband asks me, "what did you do today?". i often feel like time just flew by and i can't even remember what i did. so here's a recap of what maya and i did today.

maya woke up (from a full night of sleep i might add) at 7:20 a.m. after breakfast we went to the
library for story time. maya loves the songs, parachute play and bubbles at this location. it's a little out of the way but it is so worth it. on the way home around 10ish, maya fell asleep. i decided to go to the mall to get some shopping done while she slept. i was able to purchase a pair of jeans for myself, two pairs of maya's first "real" shoes and 6 pairs of socks from stride rite. i also found an awesome deal on some soft blocks that i've seen for $25 for only $9. couldn't pass up that deal!

after lunch maya played on her own while i made a few phone calls and got her laundry started. at 2 p.m. maya's ot (occupational therapist) came. maya did really well. she stacked many of her blocks for us, scribbled on her magna doodle and did some puzzle work. the ot was very impressed with her concentration and progress.

shortly after ot, maya took a second short nap. i got to watch top chef and yesterdays news
(thank goodness for dvr). after a small snack it was time to hit the road for our music play date at a friend's house. it was so wonderful to see her interacting with the music teacher. only one other child was there so it was almost like a personal session. maya even stood up on her own when a big tub full of drums came out. yay!

at 6:30 p.m. we met husby/dada for dinner at a restaurant we've never been to before. it was a nice little vegetarian place called green. then it was off to home for bath, reading and bed. now i'm working on finishing up her laundry, washing her cloth diapers, writing this blog and if i'm lucky i'll get to catch up a little on facebook before i go to bed.

it was a good day.
