  1. I love this!! This helps me a lot. Now that school has started, I’m trying to set up a routine. One problem though- I’m not sure what age group you’re aiming this at, but 7-8 hours of sleep is absolutely NOT enough sleep, unless they’re a teenager (which we all know stay up until 12-1am! I know I did! lol). 3-12 year olds are supposed to get 10-11 hours of sleep a night. Plus, us as moms need that break between when the kids go to bed and we do. That 2-3 hours is nice and MUCH needed!!! 🙂

  2. You are correct, 10 hours is a great number to shoot for on younger kids!

  3. This is a great article, the planning portion is absolutely key. By the time Dave and I sit down together in the evening, the kids are sleeping, clothes are out, lunches are in the fridge and we get about an hour and a half to converse and reconnect. The only thing I wanted to mention, was with respect to alarm clocks, our kids dont’ have one. I find that if they get to bed early enough, they wake up naturally usually within 10 or 15 minutes of the necessary time pretty much everytime. But they are still all under 6, so we haven’t hit the teenage years just yet!

  4. It can sometimes be tiresome to instill discipline to my kid. Sometimes I feel I sound annoying on constantly telling him what to do. But I know it is for his own good and I must be patient until he finally gets them.

  5. Great post! I had baby #3 in July and then my oldest started kindergarten 5 weeks later. I think I’m finally getting into the groove! (But I’m thankful for her school uniforms!) Honestly, some mornings she brushes her own teeth – for probably 20 seconds – but on those days if she doesn’t do it herself, it won’t get done otherwise! Hope her oral hygiene can survive these crazy days! 🙂 If you ever need some good tips on caring for kids’ teeth, I’ve found this Mom’s Guide to be helpful. Thanks for your post. Now I’m off to get things ready for tomorrow morning!
