It’s time for another How Does She Do It! We are thrilled to introduce you to Carolynn Viau from Coaldale , Alberta.
Are you an Urban or Suburban Mama, where do you live?
Suburban. I live in Coaldale, just 10 minutes from Lethbridge, Alberta.
Tell us about your children
I have 2 girls, oldest is 4, and youngest is 17 months.
Tell us about your typical weekday
My oldest daughter started preschool this year, so three days out of the week we have ʺearly morningsʺ, getting up at 7:15. Otherwise it’s usually around 8 or so. We spend mornings playing at home, doing crafts, baking, or running errands. Then lunch and naps, then some playtime at home or a walk or play at the park, then time to make supper! After supper we play with daddy, then we start our bedtime routine at 7, and have the girls in bed for 7:30.
Do you have help?
Not everyday help, but both my husbands’ family and my family live close (my parents are a one minute drive away), so I have help whenever I need it!
Who cooks dinner?
I do! My husband gets home between 5 and 5:30, and we eat at 5 because we all are starving at that time. So it just makes sense to have supper ready.
How often do you buy something for just you?
umm…. probably at least once a week…. whether it’s a snack I’m craving, Starbucks, or a new shirt.
Do you exercise regularly and if so, what and how do you fit it in?
Yes. Usually I try to go on the elliptical at around 6:00 pm each night while daddy is having play time with the girls. My goal is to be on the elliptical every day but it usually ends up being 5 days a week.
What clothing lines or stores do you like to buy for your boys?
I don’t really stick to any certain brands, I have some of everything! George, Old Navy or Children’s Place.
I’m totally obsessed with…
Three things in my purse right now …
Essential oils, lip chap, Norwex baby cloth-just in case.
My favorite drugstore buy…
Cute hair accessories for the girls!
My guilty pleasure is….
Gummies, gummies and gummies!!
