  • My boys are 3 and 4, I'm a SAHM, our days are pretty scheduled, but those around us seem to see it as ordered chaos. LOL

  • The only thing that is set in stone is meal times and napes when they were taking them also that the tv is off until at least 4 pm. Everything else is take it as it goes. We have such unorganized schedules as far as where the kids are and what we are doing it's hard to have a set one. I work Mon-thurs and DH works Wed-Sun but goes in late on Thursdays so we just switch off who has the kids. Fridays is run the errands day while DS is at school since he can't handle stores. Saturday is driving an hour to and then back from therapeutic riding. Sunday is the only day *I* and at home all day and that's when we don;t have plans with other people!!

  • mealtimes and naptimes are pretty routine for us, breakfast is always the first thing when they wake up. snack is usually around 10, lunch at noon and then nap from 1-3. they have another snack at 4 and then i start dinner at 6. bathtime after dinner then bedtime shortly after. everything we do between those times though is not constant, its just whatever we feel up to. and of course it changes a little if we're out and about that day. my kids are 4, 2, & 1

  • I am a working mom so I have routine that consists of giving my daughter 2 choices of what I know I can do as far as time and money or strenth (haha)! She gets to pick and we have a blast. On weekends we have a routine on saturday she gets 2 hours to be with a playdate or with me or whatever she wants...then on sunday we go downtown and walk around taking pictures and window shopping...she is just 7 years old but knows what she wants to do....she has many plans in her head....hahaha

  • son decides how our day is going to be. He wakes up and has to call his daddy and big sister while I shower. Then he goes potty, gets dressed and off to watch his favorite cartoon. Then he'll come ask for "brunch". If its a nice day, he wants outside otherwise he heads to the computer room to "go to school". Lunch is usually a snack, then he's off to play with his airport. Around 3 he's looking for another snack and wants to work his Pre-K workbooks. As I'm making dinner, his dinosuar Dan comes on and 30 minutes later, his dad walks in the door...supper time. If its nice outside, we'll go walking or he'll play on his slide. Nightfall he comes in to watch his Back Yardigans. Next is snack time, bath time, and reading time. He finally goes down around 8:30 PM.
