The Schedule

I mentioned here the joy of keeping a schedule / routine with little ones.  We took this to the next level and actually made a little picture calender.  The calender is taped onto the wall at kid-height and is composed of pictures so that they can look at the calender and know what we will be doing today, and what to look forward to for tomorrow.

The kids LOVE this.  It has been almost a month now, and still every morning the first thing they do after getting up – before even saying good morning – is go straight to the calender and move the arrow to the next day.  They get so much satisfaction out of knowing what’s coming.  And they re-visit the calender a few times each day to remind themselves of what is on the agenda.

Today...gymnastics and a coffee date with mama
