Recently I've been wondering about 2 things, and I'd love to hear what other families have done to make their lives run more smoothly. Please post a comment or direct me to an article / blog post that outlines what works for your family. Thank you!
#1 Laundry: How do you do it? I can wash and dry, but folding and putting away seem to be my kryptonite. How many loads a day are tackled? How often do you wash towels and linens? Do you incorporate your spouse and kids? If so, how?
#2 Daily Schedule: Is there a set flow for your days? (Right now we get up whenever, watch some PBS Kids while breakfast is served and everyone gets dressed. Morning nap for Ben usually happens, an errand is usually run or a friend is visited. Then there's lunch, another nap for Ben and the rest is pretty smudgey until dinner and bedtime.) I'd like to have some more structured time. More specifically, I'd like to have set times for chores, reading, arts/crafts/flashcards (learning kinda stuff), and prayer that go along with our nap times and errands. I have no idea what this should look like for a 2 yr old, and I want this to be fun and helpful - not stressful!
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thanks again!
