A day in the life of Oath's mom

 The idea of taking photos of my usual routine during one day had been on my mind for a while when, yesterday, I found out about Simply Rebekah's link up "A day in the Life of... 2013". It was pretty early in the morning, so I decided to join and start taking photos right away!

So, this is what yesterday looked like around here:

I found about the project after having just got up, made the bed and got dressed.

Yup, that's me. With my hair freshly put up for the day.
While I cleaned, Oath watched some cartoons. I admit that every once in a while I stopped and watched a bit with him, too.
Time to start lunch! The pot was about to start a boil.
Partner was home: time for lunch!
With the kid down for the first (and, yesterday, only! yikes!) nap, it was time for a bit of computer time.

Video chat with my little sister. Oath was still asleep and the time passed by like a blur.
Oath had a surprisingly calm day, so while he played by himself I gave in to my newly resurrected obsession: Dungeon Siege!
Mid-afternoon snack time. And orange for me, a banana, pear and orange juice mix for Oath.
Tickling my boy and loving his giggles!
The timer found me longingly looking at the cured ham we were gifted for Christmas, and wishing I knew how to slice it.
After refusing to be put down to sleep, Oath was only interested in emptying my purse.
Finally alone, I decided on chicken nuggets and cheese fingers for dinner. A little pleasure.
Just took a sip of water. That was my second bottle refill for the day! Yay for drinking more!
I waited until the half hour struck to go to bed, just so I could take this one. Pajamas on, sleepy eyes... Good night!

I wish I had taken all photos in an horizontal format, because the 14:30 is bothering me. Oh, well. It's too late to change it, isn't it?

Now, believe me when I say that my usual days involve much more cleaning, much more Oath playing and way less computer time. Taking photos at every :30 seemed to capture just my lazy moments, but I promise I was more productive than that!

You can see my days start late and also end late, that lunch is our main meal and got to see a glimpse of me and my boy... so I guess you get to know me a little bit better!

If you join this challenge, please let me know! I love seeing all those different days and life through a handful of photos.
