Making Time For Mom with Campbell's Slow Kettle Soup (1)

This past Christmas, we had both sides of the family in. It was awesome… ok, stressful. We ate so much rich holiday foods that I’m pretty sure I gained those 5… ok, 10lbs of baby weight back.

Now I am back at work and slowly settling in our routine again, which is still pretty hectic. My schedule consists of taking care of a one-year old, full time outside-of-the-home job, blogging, taking care of a dog, finding time to be with my husband, and finally eating right (but still eating delicious).

As part of my gazillion errands a week, I went to Walmart and picked up some Campbell’s Slow Kettle Soup. I would love a homemade lunch for work everyday but sometimes (ok, most of the time), it doesn’t happen. I needed something delicious that seemed like I spent “hours” cooking it, just to give my something hearty and comforting in the middle of my hectic day.

Basically my routine as is as follows:

  • Wake up.
  • Get halfway ready.
  • Wake up baby.
  • Feed baby.
  • Get baby ready.
  • Let baby play.
  • Get the other half of me ready.
  • Prepare my everyday luggage.

  • Drive baby to daycare.
  • Go over daily schedule with his teacher.
  • Give him tons of hugs and kisses.
  • Drive to work.
  • Arrive at work
  • …it’ is only 7:30am.
  • …phew.

From there it’s four hours of work (plus 1 or 2 pumping sessions), and then it’s finally time for lunch.

I like keeping some of the soups at work just in case I forget to bring them. I turn off my email notifications, head to the lunchroom and know that I am halfway home. I enjoy my soups with some crunch so for me, crackers are a must. I pop my lunch in the microwave at work, and then get 30 blissful minutes to myself.

These Slow Kettle Soups are made with fresh quality real ingredients. Plus, they don’t skimp on real chunks of hearty goodness. Perfect for this cold weather.

After lunch it’s back to work. Thankfully, with a full belly, I am a little bit more alert and jam out the last half. From there, it’s all downhill, before I’m reunited with the family again.

Until tomorrow.

That’s a snapshot of my day. What does your busy day look like?
