    • kwalshmac

      I’m so happy you loved this post. We all need to make fun of ourselves sometimes! I was getting mighty jealous of my fake day, can you imagine?!

  • Ha ha you got me 🙂 I was like..man, sounds pretty smooth 🙂

    • kwalshmac

      Ha! Yeah, if only!!

  • I am going to be honest, Laura asked me if I had read your post yet at lunch today and when I said I hadn’t gotten to it she was like omg she had me cracking up!!!!! So you didn’t have me fooled but I got to read the first half more closely. I am like 1.5 mile jog that early with a baby? Wyatt just going down like that for a nap? All these perfectly timed activities. haha. But bet I bet you wouldn’t have it any other way 🙂

    • kwalshmac

      You mean other people’s baby’s don’t run on perfectly timed schedules every day?!?! What?! haha, I was jealous of that fake day, but life is pretty sweet the way it is. Every day is a new adventure with new changes.

  • Hahaha…I saw the green smoothie one and thought NO FREAKING WAY she has time to do that every day! This was hilarious. Cheers to motherhood.

    • kwalshmac

      Yeah, no green smoothies except on the weekend and that’s only because Ryan makes them!! 🙂 Cheers to the ever changing and ever fun days of motherhood indeed.
