Also, we are all trying to get into a routine for work and preschool and homeschool and baby sleeping schedule! Phew! Although it’s been tough to make some changes, the kids really have thrived within the boundaries of a set routine.
For the past week, the boys have gotten up (or stayed in bed, in Rand’s case) at 7am, made their beds, gotten dressed, put their pajamas away, opened the drapes/turned off sound machine etc., and then they report to the kitchen to help set the table for breakfast. At 7:30 we have breakfast all together and do our family time.
Since Wen uses a watch to keep up with his bathroom schedules, the other two boys have been wanting watches too… last week Rand bought one with his savings and Philip asked me if he could borrow mine, although I think he’s planning to keep it!
We don’t plan to do this routine for Saturdays or Sundays to make them special, but for the weekdays it has worked great so far! And it has made me have to be READY myself…
