You only have so many hours in a day. And for me at least, I only have so much energy and patience in a day. When I’m not pregnant I can stretch both of these a bit farther and keep chugging until about 8pm on a good day.

Also with Summer coming our days will probably run a tad longer. I’m already noticing supper getting closer to 6pm.

Here’s the schedule that’s working for now.

Weekday Schedule:

    Looking at your picture, I’d say it’s 5:00 somewhere. :-)

    Schedules are bane and blessing. For the most part they are a huge blessing. It’s good to hear that you understand the flexibility that has to come with a schedule. We all do better when there is a schedule, some predictability to the day. Even my little ones know what should “come next” in certain parts of our day. You’re doing great!

    Kristi, you’re always such an encouragement to me. Thank you! That’s one thing I like about making my own schedule, I can throw it out the window whenever I want or say today this is what I need! :)
    And yes, it’s always 5:00 at the HALE house! :-D
