I haven't written our schedule in quite some time. It has been set like this since they were about 14 months old when we dropped their morning nap. I'm good w/ it. They are good w/ it.
6:25 ~ I wake up & shower, get coffee.
7:00 ~ Out of the cribs. Sometimes they are awake, sometimes they are asleep but either way, I wake them up. It works for us. For the next hour, we play upstairs in the playroom.
8:00 ~ Breakfast
8:30 ~ Storytime/books/coloring, depending on the day & the mess they make from breakfast.
9:00 ~ Quiet time in the cribs. This allows me to clean the floors, have a cup of coffee & prepare for the rest of the day.
9:30 ~ Play downstairs.
10:00 ~ Snacks & then play afterwards, still downstairs.
11:00 ~ On nice days we go outside in the backyard & then for a walk in the wagon.
12:00 ~ Lunch
12:30 ~ Naptime
2-3 ~ Wake up & back downstairs to play.
4:00 ~ Dinner & yes, it is early but w/ 3 kids, it is easier to feed them as Daddy is driving home. It also gives Todd time to play w/ the kids & have quality time w/ them. He does flashcards w/ them while they are at the table.
5:00 ~ On nice days, we take a family walk. The rest of the days, we play downstairs.
6:15 ~ Go upstairs, put jammies on & hang out in the playroom.
6:30 ~ Milk & video, normally a Baby Einstein.
7:00 ~ Bedtime, whew!
This means that Todd & I have adult time afterward & that is when we eat, talk, hang out, sew, or what ever else we need to do. This seems to be a very good schedule for us & I hope the kids continue to nap in the afternoon for a long time to come!
Sofi & Ian were cuddling w/ Checkers. We have 2 cats & she is definitely very tolerant of the kids.
While they were cuddling w/ Checkers, Gabi was having fun w/ Daddy watching something on the computer & giggling away!
