I have always known I was a creature of habit and I love a schedule. I have had the babies on a schedule since I brought them home, because that's just how you cope with twins, but I would have done it with only one anyway. I think that children thrive on a schedule. They like knowing what's next and what to expect. They know after bath and maybe some Elmo and a book, it's bed time. When I say Night Night Time, they walk to the nursery door and I put them in bed and turn on their cd and I don't hear a peep till 730 in the morning. It is paradise.
Of course we are off schedule now due to the illness. We are sleeping whenever they feel like it, eating whenever they feel like it, whatever they feel like it. The house is a mess, the only laundry that has gotten done is the bedding and other things that needed to be washed due to illness.
Everyone is starting to feel better, I'm definitely better and the babies are feeling better, so tomorrow I am hitting the reset button. I am getting back to normal. I am going to get up and get back to our new routine. My only hope is that the babies are on board too.... Well here goes trying anyway.
