I had big plans to get a lot done this month in terms of creating a workable routine in the evening that will alleviate some of the chaos which tends to happen in the at our house. However, there was nothing routine about the way the month of February turned out. The entire family was sick in one form or another, and within the past two weeks our two year old son decided that he does not want to take naps anymore. In addition, he has been getting up during the night.
Those of you with toddlers likely appreciate the consequences of giving up nap time. For me, It meant that I had at least two hours ( possibly) of time when could get caught up on laundry, clean, or just relax. Now without those two blissful hours in the afternoon, there are plenty more opportunities for further messes, I know that we will get ourselves into our routine eventually during the month of March, but stay tuned.
Looking ahead, I want to start the month of March with a clean slate, with the following limited goals.
- Daily quiet time
- Spend fifteen minutes reading
-Do at least one full load of laundry each day (wash, dry, put away)
- Have dinner in the oven by 4 pm each day.
-Cook at least two freezer meals per week.
-Establish a workable evening routine- ( including supper, cleanup, homework, and bedtime)
