Routine IS for me!

Routine went out the window for me while I was in college. Class times change from semester to semester and my new found freedom made we want to rebel against a "routine"...and I did. Being a stay at home mom didn't help me get back on track. In fact, it has probably made it worse. We just kinda go with the flow. Eat when we get hungry, go to bed when we want, sleep in as late as we want because, except for Sunday, there is nowhere we had to be...until now. Now we have a routine and I LOVE it! I get up by 6:40, wake the kids by 7:30, and are out the door by 8:15. Getting up early means going to bed early. The kiddos are in bed at 8 o'clock! Brady wasn't sure why he had to go to bed when it was still light out so I told him it would be dark in just a few minutes and that he could watch the sky through the blinds as it turned dark. Five minutes later they are out! I am feeling better and it's been easier to keep up with the house work. Praise God for a routine! One day a week I do all the laundry and that just happens to be today so I better get off of here. Have a great day and remember me as I wash, dry, fold, wash, dry, fold, wash, dry, fold...and then put it all away. ;-)

This morning Madelyn watched Finding Nemo from their fire truck tent. She can't wait until it's time to go pick up Brady!
