I like routine. I like to be up early. I like to come home from traveling and get back to "normal" days as soon as possible. Usually my children have other ideas. Since we returned from our vacation last Friday, bedtime has moved to later and later, and wake-up time has shifted as well. (Although I guess I should be grateful they are at least sleeping in a bit . . . usually when this happens they start going to bed late and getting up early.)

Anyway, I am a morning person, so it's nice to have some extra time to myself in the mornings, but we are also starting on this homeschooling gig next week, and if they aren't getting out of bed until 8:30 or 9:00 . . . well, that kind of ruins my evil, master plan.
Of course I have an ideal plan in my head of how the perfectly executed day would flow. It would look something like this:
5:30 Momma awake, morning quiet time
7:30 Agents awake, play time, breakfast, dressed and ready for day
9:00 School-ish stuff with Agent E (and to some extent Agent J) while Agent A plays/observes
10:00 Morning snack
10:30 More school-ish stuff (Monday to Thursday) or leave for park/library/errands, etc. (Friday)
11:00 Nap for Agent A (2-ish hours)
12:00 Play time, more school-ish or reading time, outside time, housework (varies by day)
3:00 Afternoon snack, play/movie time while Momma writes and/or catches up on housework
5:00 Make and eat dinner, clean up
6:30 Bath time
7:30 DVD and/or reading time, bedtime snack
8:30 Agents to bed, time with Hubby
9:30 Momma to bed
A girl can dream, right?

Thanks for reading and have a blessed day.
p.s. Agent A is 10 months old today!
