My kids eat, sleep, play, etc the same during the week as they do on the weekends. They are 5 (almost, first week of October), 3 and 6 months old.
They go to bed at 8pm no matter what day of the week it is. The only difference in the routine is that I wake them up at 6:30 every morning for school and on the weekends they wake themselves up at 7am.
They still do everything else the same minus going to school.
Why do people think it is a good idea to change up the routine of a small child because it is the weekend, then turn around and complain that they don't wake up easily or stick to their schedule, etc?
Small children need discipline and routines... that's how they learn best. They need specific amounts of sleep and need to eat properly.
We are in a downward spiral in our world now. Especially America. :(
