I never was a full believer on routine, but um… it works.
We are going three days strong on one and we are much better and happier for it.
Our day looks a bit like this…
6:30 Nicole wakes up and goes to the gym
6:30-7 the kids wake up and Adam gets them breakfast
8am Nicole is back and makes a smoothie for everyone
8-9 is shower/ get dressed/ watch tv etc
10-1/2ish is head out of the house and explore…or not. But this is the time for us to do it as a family.
2-2:30 we eat lunch at home. This is our big meal with Adam
2:30 Adam goes to sleep
2:30-4 we hang out at the house and are quietly playing. Gavin does some school etc.
4-6:30 Nicole and the kids head out to the market or a play place or park or all of the above.
6:30-7:30 snack and get ready for bed and 1 tv show
7:30 climb into bed.
8 Adam wakes up and heads to the gym
9:30 Adam starts his work day
It works. We are all adjusting pretty well we think.
