A slow poke among us: my little morning routine buster

by Traci Schumacher on Fri, 08/17/2012 - 10:13am

It's time to go and everyone is ready to walk out the door except for my little guy. Voted Most Likely To Make Us Late, my 3-year-old is oblivious to schedules and urgency. And it drives me crazy!

I have two older kids, so I know in general that children are not slaves to the clock like we adults are. Sometimes you have to inspire or even trick them to get them going. And sometimes that works with my little guy. If I make a race of the situation, he will often rally and hurry up to beat me, giggling all the way.

First day after the break

So it was the first day back to school for my kiddos today. Amazingly, after waking up before 7:30 for most of the break, both of my school kids could barely open their eyes at 7:30 this morning. They were sooo tired! It was quite pitiful.

I thought they both needed to go to bed much earlier tonight to help them get off to a better start tomorrow. Of course, by the evening they were bouncing off the walls and having a grand time with all the energy in the world. It's always tricky when the routine changes. We'll see how tomorrow goes...

Holidays and the disruption of routine

Thanksgiving and the holidays are not
just about being thankful and remembering what's important in life.
They are also about days off from school, relatives visiting, trips
out of town, special events... the disruption of the normal routine.

Summer Break - Love It or Dread It?

by Traci Schumacher on Wed, 05/12/2010 - 10:57am

Summer is nearly upon us, and I've decided there are two kinds of moms - those who just love this free time with their kids and those who wonder how on earth they will spend all this time. I confess that I fall into the latter category. I used to feel bad for not being overjoyed at the prospect of seemingly unending days of blissful bonding with my children. I questioned whether I loved my kids less than those other moms love their kids. But recently I've had a revelation of sorts. I think it comes down to your personality type and how you feel about structure.

But I Don't Want to Exercise!
