I’ve officially become a taxi driver.

A mom-taxi.

It was only a matter of time I suppose. With 4 kids, 3 different schools, swim team, cub scouts, band and various other activities that pop-up, I am officially in my car non-stop.

Let me just give you an idea of my typical day…

7am – my oldest daughter leaves for school. She’s already been up for an hour, but I am just rolling out of bed to kiss her goodbye. UNLESS… she forgets to set her alarm like this morning. She missed the bus and I had to drive her.

8:15am – my 5 and 8 year old are on their way to the bus stop.

8:45am – I’m packing up my 4 year old to drive her to preschool.

I’m given approximately 2 1/2 hours of free time, which mostly consists of me just trying to catch up on laundry, cleaning the house, or editing photos for the blog.

11:30am – Go pick up my 4 year old. Spend approximately 45 minutes at home before we pack up again to drive and pick up my kindergartener.

12:15pm – Pick up Kindergartener.

Make lunch, eat lunch, clean up lunch.

2:20pm – Oldest daughter comes home from school… help her on her homework/”suck the fun out of everything” (as my daughter likes to call it).

4:00pm – 8 year old comes home, help him get homework going.

4:30pm – Take oldest to swim practice/send 8 year old to cub scouts/get ready for 10, eight to eleven year old girls from church to come over (church callings). It all depends upon the day of the week.

6:30pm – Pick up daughter from swim practice.

Feed them dinner.

Can you see why I need easy dinners in my life? I’m sure this schedule is nothing new to many of you out there. You are all my hero.

I love using garlic bread to make quick and easy pizzas and the Shrimp Scampi on top of this one is my fave! The shrimp is sautéed in Challenge Butter, which seriously makes a difference you can taste.

Hi, I’m Shawn and I’m a busy mom of five; pretending to live on a budget. I love to cook, and explore new recipes, but they have to be quick and easy with as few dishes as possible.
