I need one of those things. You know … one of those things that helps you get things done. Oh yes, that’s the word, routine!
I have been trying to get into one of these for a while now and I’m sorry to say that I am failing miserably in my attempt! Some days are better than others. Baby boy will take good, long naps at the right times and I think, yes we’ve cracked it. Then the next day goes completely to pot! I am finding it almost impossible to keep on top of things in the house because on the bad days I can barely leave baby boys sight! It is very frustrating!
I am lucky that I have an amazing Mum though who helps me out. She kicks me into gear and makes sure jobs get done. I don’t know what I would do without her!
Next week I am returning to work and I dread to think how I am going to manage. But I’ll just have to I suppose. I am a Mum and that’s what we do. The dreaded ‘R’ word will have to be implemented whether it likes it or not!
How did you get into a routine that worked for you?

My routine is lead by my children. I know that I have to serve them their breakfast and soon after twins will go for a nap that usually last for about an hour if we stay at home or it’s a good time to go out till lunchtime. Then it’s lunch and soon after it’s nap for twins again and so on until bedtime. There are never strict times to anything and I just work my way around to whatever needs they have. Some days my toddler is more demanding than others and some days I feel more energetic than others. I’m doing my housework in between the demands from my children, evenings or weekends when my partner is looking after kids. I wouldn’t want a pressure of regimented routine as children keep changing it as they grow anyway and for me the best way to manage is to go with the flow.

Thanks Digs. I don’t necessarily want strict times for things but a loose routine would be nice. Hopefully we will get something sorted soon.
well i wont say am on a routine for now, however these days since we started working on the kids chef project and setting up our blog, writing the proposals , geting samples of our kids chef outfits ready, its been the office for a few hours in the morning, the tailors, the internet, meetings.. kinda fun but hey! my mama always said “the best way to get anything done is to keep at it till its done.”
