I have been working on a schedule for about..... ummm.... 4 years!! I would love to have the kids and I in a schedule but I think I'm at the point of giving up, and accepting that it's not going to work for us! lol
Anyway this is about how our days work.....
6:30 I try to get up, maybe take a shower, have coffee, read my Bible
7:30-8 kids wake up, we talk, snuggle, maybe read
8:30-10 my kids are sporatic eaters so when they are hungry I make them breakfast. In this time the kids play and I maybe read or put laundry away, maybe prepare mail
10:30 ish the kids and I work on puzzles together or the kids work on a craft... painting, play doh, crayons, sticker. or we might play a game
12 ish lunch
12:30 if my dd is going to lie down for a nap it's usually about now. and my ds might play with trains, games, books, etc while I do chores
3 dd wakes up and we have a snack then we might go outside and play or read, make something together.
4:30 start dinner
5:30-6 eat dinner
6:30 kids play with dad while I clean up
7 kids and I take a bike ride, read or bath, or play outside
This is kinda close to our average day! Trying to do this is crazy because we have so many things that cause us to deviate from this all the time, like, lately we have been running errands on Tuesdays, leaving the house about 10 and getting back around 1. So on those days the kids have a late lunch and if dd naps it will be later than normal. Also my dh has been golfing once or twice a week lately and that throws us off, as well as keeping my aunts 3 kids sometimes twice a week.
