I told you one of my new years resolutions is to be a better mother. That alone can cover just about a billion topics in my head. I am going to start by having a better organized and structured day for my son and myself. They say this is good for children so....I sat down to make our new schedule for our days and nothing came to mind. Really is it that hard to make a schedule for a 18 month old? So I hit up my good friend google. It went something like this.
Yes, it is me again. Well could you please tell me what kind of schedule my son should be on?
I am sure to be back later this week.
Google never disappoints me. Now I have this awesome schedule I cannot wait to try out with LM. I just need a bit more time to prepare. And LM is sick with the stomach bug so we really won't start until next week. We are going to attempt something like this..........
-Get up and eat breakfast.
-He can watch some toons while I get ready and (gasp) make the bed.
-School time- this is anything from learning letters to colors and animals. Lets do some arts and crafts....this is where I need more time to prepare.
-Free play-roam the house and do whatever he wants to do.
-quite time-read some books maybe some baby signing time.
-NAP time. :)
-go outside and play or just run errands
-Free play again.
- Play with daddy
You will notice there are no time frames for this, because lets face it, he may only do school time for 10 minutes. But for those 10 I will feel like I am doing something important with my son. I will know the day did not go by wasted.
Question: is your child on a set schedule and do you like it? Or like not having one?
