  1. I admit I have gotten annoyed with my sisters when they disrupt adult time to keep their kids on routine. But I really do understand why that is so important for kiddos too and I’m sure will do the same when my husband and I have kids soon!

  2. I love my routine. We got off our routine last night because of the holiday and I paid for it all night long. When people say to throw the routine out the window, I want to invite them over at 11pm, then 1am, 3am, 5am, just so I can sleep.

  3. Loved this. I’ve learned very quickly that creating routines are life-savers.. kids love structure and order and when you create them they will eventually follow it. ❤️

  4. Routines are so important! Since having my twins almost 5 years ago, routine has been key. I even spent the last month on my blog talking about routines. LOL. When your house has a routine things run a lot smoother.

  5. I remember, pre-parenthood, when I would be at a friend’s house (who did have kids) and being slightly irked when they would drop everything to stay on schedule.
    “Okay guys, you’re gonna have to go, she has to be in bed at 8 on the dot!” I just didn’t get it. But now I totally do!! These are some great tips, because I really do need to perfect my routine. Thanks so much for sharing! <3

  6. I never underestimate the power of routines. When I was a first-time mom, I was making all sorts of mistakes: crying, tantrums – all because I let my child lead me. Now, I lead with routines 🙂 Thank you for such a great reminder!

  7. Great post! Consistency is so important! I love the nap time allotted…I use this time, our quiet time because my oldest doesn’t nap, to digress somewhat. I’m a homeschooler, with 3 kids, 1 who is a baby 9 mths so a schedule is a must!

  8. I fully agree with this! And, not just for the kids but for the adults as well. I do way better when I am strict with my schedule than when I’m more lax.
