Other routines in this house of ours…
*Date night! Once a week. No questions asked. We schedule a month a head of time, mesh the home calendar with Lee's work and voila. I can't be in this city and be caged in post 7pm every night!
*Music Class, Art Class, Swimming Lessons. I've had to schedule around the nap schedule as it evolved from 6mo til now but having 2-3 classes/week break up the days and Morgan just loves the classroom setting. (Wonder where she gets that from?;)
*Part-time nanny. We are very fortunate to be able to afford some help during the week. Mondays & Thursdays are when I get everything done & bikram…then explore and wander and read and shop. Sometimes it's mindless, other times I'm on a mission. It's really me. It's how I opporate and I come back totally rejuvenated as a Mom but mostly as myself. I never thought in a million years that as a stay at home Mom I would need a break, or a day or two to retain parts of who I am. I just thought…it's my job, and that's that. But these child-free days make me able to be most present and aware of Morgan because I can balance. (Ask me how I do this when we decide to have another child. No not soon;)
*Saturday mornings. When we are in the city, it's bagels & coffee on Saturday mornings then off to walk the Ramble visit the ducks or hunker down on a blanket in Sheep Meadow. We've been doing it since moving uptown and it feel like a part of the famliy. Like ah, there you are friend…my favorite chunk of hours all week.
What are some of the routines your family likes best?
Happy Tuesday friends…just days away from it being officially SUMMER! (the 91* and humidity today is a "springtime" joke.)
