The infant stages of starting a real routine...

So, the original plan was to start all this yesterday. That was adjusted slightly when I realized that that was just not going to really be feasible when there were two appointments scheduled this week and the incredibly inconveinient plumbing issues (our hot water heater being among them). So, yesterday we went with the old stand-by... we winged it. Today and tomorrow, hopefully, we'll be able to go through the routine. Thursday, Ryan will get the bulk of the morning routine, and then on Friday, we'll be able to dig in.

Here is what I have planned to start out. 

7:00-8:30          Adult Time
8:30-9:00          Kids up and dressed and fed breakfast
9:00-10:00        Tech/Art Time
10:00-12:00      Snack, free play in their room, no TV
12:00-1:00        Lunch
1:00-2:00          Play (outside, weather permitting)
2:00-3:00          Quiet Time
3:00-3:30          Snack Time
3:30-5:00          Free play in their room with some TV
5:00-6:00          Dinner
6:00-7:00          Free play
7:00-8:00          Clean room, bath, dressed, snack, hair brushed, teeth brushed
8:00-8:30          Read to them in bed
8:30-9:30          Lights out & Bedtime (while I play bedtime police)
9:30-11:00        Adult time

I know that from nothing to getting this to work won't be an easy task, but I think before March's end, it'll all pay off! Wish me luck!
