In last week’s blog post I talked about WHY having your kiddos on a schedule is beneficial. This week I’m talking about HOW I got my little guy on a schedule and will show examples of our schedules at different ages.

Ever since I can remember, I’ve been a lover of schedules. There’s something about a schedule… the predictability of knowing what’s coming next, the planning ahead, the organization… it truly is a beautiful thing! Now I’m well aware that not everyone feels this way about planning ahead. We have a lot of friends and family that prefer to ‘fly by the seat of their pants’ and find it amusing that I plan get togethers at LEAST a week in advance.
Mamas, have you ever experienced a moment with your little(s) that was so difficult it left you in a puddle of tears? It’s almost like it’s a rite of passage into parenthood to have these experiences. I think it’s safe to say that we’ve ALL had times like these (unless you have perfect children in which case we are all extremely jealous of you!).
Prior to being a stay at home mama, I worked in the corporate HR world. In my role, I was constantly receiving feedback whether it be positive or negative (let’s be real, the negative isn’t always fun but at least you can learn from it!). I thrived off of feedback. There was nothing better than working feverishly on a big project and hearing that I did a great job. It always made the long hours and work worth it!
