One of those days

Forgive me this is going to be an all over the board post.

Have you ever had one of those days where you wonder if anyone would miss you if you just disappeared? Like you fell of the face of the earth? I am having one of those days. Like I feel the world would just keep turning without me. I wouldn't even be a blip on the radar. And that kind of hurts.

I know all kids are different. But today the difference in personality really shined through in my kids. While I was cleaning the kitchen Banana was underfoot the entire time wanting to help mommy.

But Little Man was happy to play in the bedroom all by himself. He was just happily playing with his trains and cars.

It is just funny the dichotomy of the two.

The Best Laid Plans

I have decided I am going to get us on a schedule. I watched the Super Nanny marathon yesterday (I think this is where this urge is coming from). I think the kids and I will do better with a schedule.

Anything before 8 am will be free play time. This will be the schedule when Big Man actually gets home at 400.

8 - 9 am Breakfast and getting dressed
9 - 930 Walk
930 - 10 play outside
10-1130 Movie or Sprout (Mommy will clean up, Laundry etc)
1130-1200 Lunch
1200-300 Nap time/Quiet Time (Laundry and whatever clean up isn't done, but Mommy will rest here too)
300-500 Learning Playtime/Play outside/Play with Daddy
500-600 Dinner time
600-700 Bath time/clean up
700-730 Story time
730 Bedtime!
