A Day in the Life of an Author Mom
🛌📱📥I wake up, check email on my phone, and do my social media posts for the day while I’m still in bed.
🍳👨🦱🧒👨🦱👧Next, I eat breakfast with my family. Then I help my four kids get ready for school, style hair, pack lunches and water bottles, and put on masks.
📤💳🚘I respond to my email and pay bills, before driving to preschool.
🖥📑📒Then I have two hours to myself! It’s pretty amazing. I try to use this time to draft and edit.
🚘🧃🍇The time passes quickly and my preschooler comes home for lunch.
🚴♀️📲📚I go 10 miles on my exercise bike while I write book reviews on my phone. If I’m caught up on reviews, I get to read! My favorite hobby.
🚿👚👖I finally shower and get out of my sweats for real clothes.
🐖🐓📸My preschooler and me play together. When she picks what we do, we play farm animals. When I pick, we take bookstagram photos. She’s a great helper!
👩👧👧💻☕️Once she gets tired of playing with me, we text her friend. While they play, I try to get in a little work before they ask for a tea party. Yes, we have a tea party almost every day! You’ve got to train them young.
🚘📞🧡Then we bring her friend home and go pick up my other kids from school. While we wait in the parking lot, I respond to social media comments on my cell.
📄🎉🍔After school, is homework, playing, and making dinner.
⚽️🩰📚The evening is a litany of soccer and dance practices. While I wait in the car, I read YA books!
🛏📺👫Bedtime is my second favorite part of the day. My husband and I will watch Netflix in bed and then talk about our day.
