This is our schedule for the week,
Get out of bed at 8
Make breakfast, get DD up so she can eat as well.
Bath and dress.
Clean for an hour while both of my toddlers have imagination time (they can choose to color, build blocks, or get into dress up clothes)
Clean up time (children clean their toys, I usually help my 13 month old)
Playroom/Workout time (The small place I go to workout has a room for the kids to play in with windows so I can watch them. They enjoy it)
They have snack time in the playroom
At 12:30 we come home, I make my husband lunch and take it to him (kids eat lunch while I make dad's lunch)
Kids take naps as soon as we get back.
I do my hard core cleaning during nap time (washing baseboards, mopping, dusting ceiling fans, etc)
When kids wake up we have snack time then head outside.
We go to the park, then return home
When we return home we do whatever activity I have planned (gardening, painting, or dance and gymnastics on tues and thurs)
When cooking dinner the kids either can "help" or are allowed to play with anything in their rooms. (I also allow tv time if they choose it during this time).
If they are able to help with the meal , they join in.
If not then I allow them to help "make cookies" by giving them flour, bowls, and spoons and playing on the kitchen floor.
As soon as dinner is done I clean up our messes and the kids clean their rooms.
We either wait for daddy or eat without him (we hold off as long as the kids are able. While waiting we usually dance with music.)
Once daddy comes home cleaning stops until bedtime.
We play with the kids, read to them, or if they are playing alone we will watch a movie, get on the internet, just relax.
Do bedtime routines, which include the kids picking up their rooms.
Once the kids are in bed I do a quick clean up of the house, fold any laundry I didn't get to, throw diapers in the wash if they need it, anything I missed.
Then I shower, get all of the next days activities ready for the next day and get in bed with hunny.
During the weekend, our plans are always different.
We still have meals and snacks at the same time, but our activities center around spending time with daddy...unless he's golfing then I'm on the internet (like now, while the kids are napping lol)
This is our summer schedule, but if I didn't follow it our house would fall apart. lol
I pretty much keep the house spotless though, always ready for company.
Of course, I'm not completely anal.
If we need to step over a pile of clean clothes to get out the door for family time, we're doing it.
