Schedules

Last week for some reason I was bored out of my wits and was running out of ideas to entertain my little boy,thats when I realised I need to get organized.And the best way  to get organized is to get a schedule.I m a methodical person and love schedules.Schedules keep me sane and empowered.Once I started listing down, it brought lot of things like new learning opportunities and reminded me of the forgotten or neglected ones too :).

This is what works for me:

I got my planner out.

I have a schedule:

1.For my day:
Eg.8.00AM- J wakes up
9.00AM – J has Breakfast
9.30AM-11.00AM – Self Play/Activities

2.For the books I read to my son:
I pick out 2 books and read them throughout the day before his naps.
Eg.Brown Bear brown Bear & Dr.Seuss ABC

3.For Games and activities  I plan out.
Eg.Pom Pom Stuffer &
Shape Sorters

4.For all the nursery rhymes I would sing.
Eg.Wheels of the Bus &
ABC’s

5.For the mandatory activities I want to do everyday.
 Eg.Reading the abc book or Go out for a walk.

I will however say I like to mix and match activities or books if my little boy is bored or doesn’t want to do them.The schedule to me is more like a guideline and not a fixed plan of action.

With my son his schedule changes with every milestone.He just lost a nap,my schedule is still evolving.I like commit it to the lord for he alone directs our days.

Proverbs 21:5 (NKJV)
5 The plans of the diligent lead surely to plenty,
But those of everyone who is hasty, surely to poverty.

Ephesians 5:15-16 (NIV)
15 Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, 16 making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil.

Blessings!!!

  • its nice to have a schedule but with lil ones around its hard to follow them to the dot..so we have to learn to relax and take things as it comes too at times! that we we r not stressed…minothi!

  • I agree sis, schedule must only be a guideline and not a rigid rule 🙂
