UNSCHOOLING DAILY ROUTINE // A Real & Raw Look at a Day in the Life of a Work at Home Mom


(soothing electronic music) (baby babbling) – Trying, he was trying to hit me with the ball. – Good morning! Morning!
– Woo hoo! Yah! (baby grunting softly) – That’s fine.
– Hey, no! – Good mornin’! – Emmet, what are you
reaching for, the plant? Okay guys, I’m taking Emmet to the potty, you can go downstairs. – [Girl] Yay, we can go out downstairs! – Potty time. And we just did a pee pee in the potty. Good morning (mwah) good
morning (mwah) good morning! (soothing electronic music) (icon pops) (icon pops) Alexa, play meditation music. (icon pops) (soothing electronic music) (icon pops) (mwah)
Huh, hug, hug, Ooh! Bye, sunshine! Enjoy your breakfast. About to go to the gym
but the car is frosty. (bottle squirts) (somber piano music) All right, we’re heading to the gym, it’ll be a miracle if we’re there on time, because we typically never are. So my little two are with the babysitter and my big two are coming
with me to the gym, they let them, and so that’s really nice. We go in there twice a week, usually. I know a lot of people feel
like they can’t make it happen, and I did for a long time. This is the first time in years
that I’ve actually been able to go to the gym. I’m like, morning snuggles,
and potty, and hug, and then straight out the
door to get this done. And then once I know that’s done, I come back with a lot more energy,
(icon pops) I feel like I’ve taken care
of my health for today. Now I’m really available
for everybody else. Also, before we go in, I should tell you that I’m, like, probably the
weakest one in that class. Like, I’m always the slowest, and I’m always lifting
the lightest weights. And that’s fine with me. (icon pops)
I’m a very non-competitive person. And I’m really just there to feel healthy. I just feel so proud of
myself for getting there. – Hold up the video. – Gimme a push. (icon pops)
– Three, two, one, rest. (somber piano music) Three, two, one, go. – Hey guys! So we’ve just completed our workout. It was intense and exhausting,
but really energizing, a great way to start the day. And we’re going back home, meet back up with the others. And we’ll do a little
bit of homeschooling, getting ourselves ready,
out the door, to go to Judo. All right, let’s do this. I want us to go in, please. Um, we’re gonna– – I’m gonna eat.
– I’m gonna have a quick shower.
– I’m gonna eat. – You’re gonna eat, good
idea, let’s have breakfast. Then I’m gonna have a quick
shower then have breakfast. And then let’s–
– Why are you taking a video? – Because I’m doing a Day in the Life. – Well yeah, but look,
we’re just literally talking about what we’re gonna do now. You can take a video of that sooner. – [Mom] I know, I just thought in case it was an
interesting conversation. – No, it’s not–
– I might not use it. – [Son] It’s definitely not,
it’s not an interesting– – [Mom] I agree, it’s not interesting so I might edit this out.
– Confercation. – Conversation. You tired? Are you so tired? Should Mommy tuck you in? Ready to go to sleep? Googoosh! (rainy white noise) (light guitar and flute music) (icon pops) (icon pops) – [Mom] What do you
think I’m doing, sweetie? – You’re pumping. – You’re getting a lot of milk! – I love you! – I love you. I’m Rainbow Sally. – Rainbow Sally? – Yeah! – Oh, hi Rainbow Sally. – She can be my mermaid. – Hey guys, so we’re back in the car now. I’m in the car with my three big kids. My baby is staying home
with our babysitter, our wonderful, wonderful
babysitter, I should say. I pumped a little bit of milk. I did get a pump recently because I’ve been
leaving my baby home more because he’s so sensitive sleep-wise, he wasn’t getting the
naps he needed on the go. We’re on our way to Judo and
then typically after Judo, we have our homeschool
co-op which is either at my friend’s house or at my house. But when it’s not at my house, then I’m out for quite a long time. And my baby’s at home and I miss him. But it’s the best for him. He has a really happy day, and
he gets two really good naps. What we do is we have
a private judo lesson, just my eldest has a judo lesson. And we meet up with all our
other homeschool friends for the full lesson with everybody in it. So, what I typically do is
I actually bring my computer and I sit and while my
kids are playing Judo. I sit and get some work done. (upbeat electronic music) (highly accelerated audio) (playful piano music) – One, two, three, four, five, six. – Five plus nine. I won’t, do you wanna do math with him? – Look, like ten plus five is fifteen. – [Boy] Fourteen? – Yes! Fourteen! (playful electronic music) (accelerated audio) (tranquil electronic music) (bassy electronic music) (icon pops) (tranquil electronic music) (bassy electronic music) (highly accelerated audio) (smooth electronic music) – You come over here.

journaling and meditation. Thanks so much for spending
