Well summer is almost here. The weather is warmer, to say the least, and the days are longer. And while I love summertime and all of the activities I do with my kids, I'm finding that this past holiday weekend has taken a toll on my family's schedule, as I fear the summer vacation will.
As a parent, I'm sure you'd agree that keeping a regular, daily, schedule is absolutely paramount, not only to the kids' well being and development, but to parents' ability to maintain the household, as well as their sanity!
When it comes to the school week, my husband and I try to keep a consistent schedule, especially with our evening routine, leading up to bedtime.
Lately it seems as though we are spending our weekdays just trying to get back on schedule after a fun-filled weekend. Again, love the weekend activities, but I'm having a little trouble with the kids' inability or unwillingness to snap back into our regular routine.
So, what works best for you when it comes to getting back into, or keeping, your regular routine, especially during holidays, vacations, and more importantly, the summertime?
