In the second installment of our brand-new Day in the Life column, we asked S.F.-based pediatrician, mother of three, and previous MOTHER profile subject Kat De Jong to show us what her new normal looks like. As a medical professional working in a hospital, Kat’s anxiety about what lies ahead is at an all-time high. However, she’s also embracing the extra time at home with her family—James, 8, Ben, 6, and Poppy, 3, plus husband Brandon—and taking the good (children that love to play together) and the not-so-good (toddler tantrums) in stride. Check out what a day in her current life looks like, below.

    Thank you Kat for all that you are doing to take care of us and our children. I can’t imagine how hard it must be everyday to leave your beautiful family and put your own life at risk. Thank you.
