Okay, so I know I promised to share my cleaning schedule with you this week, but it is not going to happen. I still have not figured out what will work yet. But I promise I am working on it.
I do, however, have some of my schedules worked out. These are a work in progress (as is life). But they do seem to be helping create some order in our day. I find this to be very challenging as a stay-at-home-mom. There is no clocking in and out. There is no definite times that things have to be done. I really have struggled with this ever since I started staying home with my firstborn.
For me: The following are my morning and evening routines. This is the stuff I try to get done between taking care of my two kids, age 4 and 1. You will notice for the most part I don’t have specific times listed. This is because I try to get it all done while the kids are busy playing and this can vary from day to day.
Following are a list of additional things that I do on certain days of the week or month:
For the kids: I purchased a chart called a “Class Scheduler” at the Dollar Tree for only $1 that I listed the schedule for my kids on. This makes it easy for everyone to know what is happening next in the day. I might make a nicer one someday, but for now this is working fine (you write on it with a dry erase marker).
I was able to draw the big and little hands on the blank clocks as well as the numbers for my son. I might try to add some clip art pictures for him, since he can’t read yet. But again, this is working for now.
