I never realized how addicted to routine I am. OK! I know I am. I love routine. I love knowing what to expect every single day. My life is pretty boring and predictable Sunday - Friday. Saturdays are a tough one for me. Saturdays tend to be a little more loose. When Saturday rolls around I am always begging, "what's the plan?" What can I say, I like a plan. I need a plan. I thrive on a plan. Can you tell I like a plan? I try to be spontaneous once in awhile, but mostly I am all about the routine. I don't know who to quote and I am just too darn lazy to look anything educational up, but I am pretty sure that kids thrive on routine as well. Just from my personal experience my chilly children are much happier kiddos on a routine. This is a picture from our Friday routine. I am shuttling to and from preschool/kindergarten. BTW Last day of kindergarten! Occasionally I'll look in my mirror and sneak a peak at the precious moments that my little ones create all on their own. I mention here what an amazing big brother Max is. Love this kid. And all that he does. Love routine and the stability it creates in my little life.
