Routine…..it’s nice to have at times, but for our little family its quite hit and miss unfortunately.
Every day for us is slightly different.
B runs his own business so it depends where and when the work fits in.
Some mornings we leave him in bed and others he’s gone before sunrise.
Sometimes he’s done by lunchtime and others he’s still out at 10pm.
I start and finish work at different times every day.
2 days we have to leave the house at 7.45am to get Little B to grandparents before i start work at 9 others he doesn’t get dropped off till 10.15 so i can start at 11.30.
My evenings vary from 3.10pm (Friday phew) through to 7.30-9.30pm finishes (mon/tues/wed).
Fitting in my shifts at the preschool and my teaching classes in the evenings.
My diary & Iphone calendar are my best friends!
So bless Little B its hard to know what day it is.
At least he knows he’ll always be with his parents or grandparents and for that we are extremely grateful.
He has a fantastic relationship with all 3 sets of grandparents and great grandparents too.
Little B won’t get any funding for preschool until after Easter 2016, so in the meantime and since he was 9 months, we have relied heavily on our parents and making sure we are home when the other person needs to go out to work.
Luckily this works for us! Somehow!
Little B has seemed like he wants to drop his afternoon nap for the last few weeks. This is something I’m not too keen on. I thought his naps would last till he was at least 3 yrs. He has always been a fantastic sleeper 7-7 at least, with 2 hrs nap in the afternoon (more if you let him) (I know I know I’m sorry mums out there).
He doesn’t always have his nap, as he won’t sleep at grandparents houses during the day or if theres too much going on, but he would then sleep in car on the way home and be exhausted bless him. However over the last few weeks he has been chatting to himself till 9pm, not a peaceful bedtime. We decided that he obviously didn’t need the nap (I still do though) and left him to it and now he crashes at 7pm on the dot. There have been a few days since, when he’s been out for the day with grandparents, that he’s been so exhausted he’s just crashed out.
When does every other mother do the washing, tidying, make phone calls, write a blog post and get on top of housework/paperwork?
Naptime was my saviour for a hot cuppa tea and sometimes a cheeky nap myself!
