Preschool equals mommy time

I love preschool! It gives me a few hours to get things done where I don't have to worry that I'll wake Callie or if I need to run errands I can. Today I used my "mommy time" to bake 3 different kinds of breakfast "muffins" for Callie and I. I wanted to make sure we have plenty of breakfast and snack items readily available for when Diego arrives. Usually when I am home I'll whip up a batch of waffles, pancakes, or muffins at breakfast time but I can't see that happening with Diego needing my attention too. So I made banana muffins, blueberry Greek yogurt mini muffins, and baked pumpkin oatmeal cakes. I decided I wanted some chocolate chips on top since these had no sugar and went for it on all of them. I also did 6 loads of laundry, did all the dishes, ran the dishwasher and out it all away AND ate lunch. When I picked Callie upafter lunch her teacher said she didn't eat much of what I sent... Go figure! She asked for a snack when we got home so I let her try a pumpkin oatmeal. She immediately ate all the chocolate off the top first. I guess she takes after me ;) her poor new Italy short Tia Mari gave her was covered in food just like her face!
During her nap I accomplished some minor computer and phone times I needed to tackle and sat down for a rest.
In the afternoon for snack she wanted to have a "picnic" on the front steps while we waited for dad to come home from work. It actually was quite fun. 
So today was breakfast preparing. Now I am trying to think of ideas for lunch that can be frozen and ready quickly but are still healthy. Any ideas?
Tonight I made homemade boogie wipes as Callie has had a runny nose for a few days.
Tomorrow's goal? Pack my hospital bag! I can't believe I have accomplished so any other things but still neglect this. I think I learned I need way less than I needed last time, but still I need some things. Also Callie needs a bag packed since if I deliver soon she will be staying at Grandma and Grandpas house.
