    9:30-11:30 am School/Summer it's FREE time
    11:30-12:30 pre-lunch chores; lunch; post-lunch chores
    12:30-1:30 pm-FREE me time (read, Internet, hobby etc)
    1:30-2:00 pm School/Summer it's FREE time
    2:00-4:00 pm misc. things (chores, going the park, finish school if it didn't get done already)
    4:00-6:00 pm pre-dinner chores, dinner, post-dinner chores
    6:00-6:30 Family time
    6:30- sub. kids bath

    Kids have their own set of chores that they do for pre-post meals times and I have my own. It's frees up our day to do other things. :)

  • mine is simple, we wake up eat. clean a bit here and there (but not much) talk to my mom (my kids thalk too) then when daddy calls we all talk too. we play & goof around. i make a snack for the kiddos and watch my Soap Opera. then nap time for my youngest, and my other two usually go play outside. i get my computer time :D, then when hubby calls and says he's on his way home i start dinner and we all clean up the rest of the house. thats basicly it.

  • alarm goes off i wake up, get dressed for the gym, put up my hair, brush teeth etc. i make brown bag lunch and feed the cat a scrap. i take kiddo and her best friend to school, then i go to the gym and workout for fourty minutes. then i go home shower, and drink coffee for awhile. get dressed and clean up a little from breakfast and lunch. maybe run some errands. SO leaves for work then kiddo gets home, we talk a bit about what happened at school she has a snack and then plays with her best friend or plays a video game. dinner time for her, then much later, dinner time for me. snack time, bedtime, chore time, relaxing time, then bed time for me as well.

  • wow i have to give KUDOS to ms organized above! we dont have a set schedule. we sleep in late 9ish, eat breakfast. then we play/watch tv/read until lunch 3pm. DD usually takes a nap for a couple of hours, and i get time to clean up/check e-mail/me time, then hubby calls to say he's coming home and we make dinner, depending on what time he gets home we'll play a little more after dinner and then it's bath and bed time-9:30pm; then hubby and i get some US time to catch up our days and sit and talk. i usually hit the hay around 11pm. you can subsititute run errands/grocery shop/visit the park for any of the play periods for days we have to do those things. i have a pretty laid back schedule... my DD's only 2 so not too much structure to our days- we like to play things by ear.

  • We don't do schedules, but my son has gradually put himself into his own routine. We don't have times as he wakes up at all different hours. But this is based on the time he normally wakes up:

    6:30am - Wakes up, spends time with books and puzzles in the pack and play (he likes being left alone when he first wakes up)

    7:30am - Eats breakfast

    8:15am - Plays outside and inside until naptime

    11:00am - Takes a long nap

    2:00pm - Wakes up, eats lunch

    2:45pm - Plays until he's ready for a snack.

    4:45pm - Typical estimated time he wants a snack

    6:00pm - This is when his Daddy gets home. Dinner time.

    6:30pm - Daddy gives him a bath and puts on his jammies

    and then he goes to sleep around 8ish depending on when he feels like drifting off
