  • My son gets up at 7 everyday, gets dressed, brushes teeth, I comb his hair (he does this weird combover thing if I don't). If he finishes up everything he needs to do to be ready for school he gets about 10 minutes of TV. Then its off to school where he stays til 3:15ish. I pick him up, he comes home and does everything from his chore list while having a snack or a drink, whatever he wants. His chores include homework, feeding and watering the cats, bring out his laundry and anything else random I need him to do (throwing trash or unloading dishes usually). Then my little TV addict likes to play some video games or watch TV if it's not pretty enough outside to play. At 6 I start cooking dinner, he sometimes helps. We eat, hang out until about 7 then he gets in the shower, brushes teeth and gets all PJed up and ready for bed. Then we read a book and he is in bed at 8. rinse and repeat!

  • On school days:
    up at 6:45am. They get their own breakfast and then get dressed for school.
    7:40am we are out the door to walk to school.
    7:50-2:20 school for the older kids
    for the younger kid (3):
    snack around 9am
    lunch at 11am
    snack at 1pm
    maybe a nap in there somewhere (highly doubtful any more, though)

    Then the kids get home and do homework and the 4 of them play until dinner at 5pm. Then they eat and watch TV until bedtime at 7pm.

    On the weekends they do whatever, we have no routine other then lunch at 11pm.
    The older kids have classes at our park on certain days after school which causes great insanity around here.

  • My daughter is 6 mos.
    Up around 9ish, dress her, change diaper, take a wash cloth, wipe down, lotion, clean in nose and ears, clip nails if needed.
    Watch movie together while she eats formula and a bit of baby food. Play in her exersaucer, talk and sing to me while i vaccumm or fold laundry. between 12-1 she goes for a nap, and i can do whatever.. workout mostly, she gets up, eats baby food, we watch another movie while she plays. while im cooking we go sing the alphabet, and try saying mamma and daddy.
    around 6:30 she goes for a bath and we play there for about 45 mis.. any earlier im dealing with a VERY crabby baby that wont sleep lol
    and then we read two stories, give her some formula and she's alseep by about 7:30 at the latest.
    Pretty easy day, and if it's nice out we go for a walk after the first nap

  • It depends on the day. The general outline is roughly...

    8am breakfast
    11:30am lunch
    1-3 nap for the youngest
    3:30 snack
    5:30 supper
    8pm bed

    Into all that, add speech and/or OT for each, preschool for two of them, doctor's appointments, gym classes, swimming lessons, peer group and the usual play, TV, pee, poops, etc....
