Making Your Home Sing : Schedule

Making your home sing Mondays

With our helper gone, my schedule at home has changed and become full. From the laundry, to preparing breakfast, washing the dishes, cleaning the house, caring for the kids, quiet time and a bit of crafts time, cooking and bringing my girl to school, putting my boy down for a nap, quiet time on my own, fetching my girl, studying her lessons from school and lots more… That has been my schedule for the past week. I definitely noticed that I have few or no quality time with my little boy. I hardly have time to play with him and “study” with him. We are just starting to study the letters and numbers after he has mastery of colors and shapes. I know that I need to change my schedule or wake up earlier to do the chores. I am praying that God give me the correct prioritization and way to schedule all that I have to do at home without sacrificing time with my kids. I pray that God help me make my home sing starting this week by fixing my schedule.

  1. Waking up earlier…. that need is hitting many of us 🙂

    God can give us the stregth to balance it all!

  2. Waking up earlier…today is back to school day and I "have" to get up early now, but doing this gives me so much more time in the day! Hope that you find a schedule that works well for you!

    I am sure that you will find a schedule and routine that works for you.

    I have the book "Managers of Their Homes" (go to Titus2.com to see it) and she has eight children and she highly recommends a schedule. Her book helped me alot.

    She recommends blocks of time and you can rotate different things within that time.

    Say I have two hours in my afternoon. I can use that block of time and on Monday and Tuesday I can clean, on Wednesday I can pay bills, on Thursday I could do something else, and Friday still do something else. You can rotate things through or whatever.

    I know you'll figure it out. Thank you for joining us today!
