On an average everyday basis, my daughter and I go through our daily routines. We wake up around 6-6:30 in the morning so she can see her daddy off to work. We then like to watch Dora, while eating breakfast, so she is SO not distracted while watching Teletubbies.. “Moooommmm, ssshhh, tuuubbbbieees IS oon!” My daughter is two.. I could say I have no idea where she learned that, which would be true..but we all know she some how picked it us from one of her parents..
My daughter Elodie and I then have a simple couple hour morning. She will continue to watch some sort of cartoons, lately it has been Barbie, and I, since creating a blog, sit for a couple hours trying to write. She made her own routine of her needing her baby while watching cartoons. She will sit in her chair, baby wrapped in a blanket or a sweatshirt and feed, comfort, and cuddle her. Then she makes sure baby likes whatever they are watching. She is beyond a mother hen. Well then is turns into play time, lunch time, nap time, daddy comes home, dinner time, family time, and finally bed time. Every day…
What IS a good Routine?
You know, I don’t know the difference between a good and bad routine. For all I know, this could be a bad one. For a first time mother, I hardly know the ins and outs of being a mom. Even with her at the age of two a a half doesn’t make me know much more than day one. So what makes a good routine?
I believe a good routine, is a routine in itself. When your daughter or son understands and knows what time of day it is, without having to tell them. They learn to have internal clocks that lets them know when it’s time to wake up, time to eat, to play to sleep. My daughter knows halfway through the morning, she needs to clean up her toys. Almost Naturally. Then again before her daddy gets home. (Yes, my house gets that messy!) Routines are something so simple, and teaches kids discipline, naturally.
So think about it for a minute. Do you have a routine? If so, how does it make you day go?
