Do we have a schedule? Absolutely! If not, our life would be crazy. Since we homeschool I don’t wake up our daughter at a specific time. I just let her wake up on her own which is normally around 6-7am. Wish she’d sleep in later but she doesn’t. We get breakfast, dressed, brush teeth, take Togepi (the house chicken) out and just hangout until around 10am. I get out the school for the day and make a snack to have while doing school.
After we finish school, I get house chores done for the day. Dishes, laundry, clean rooms and mopping. Our daughter loves to help clean for some reason she thinks it’s fun. I hope she keeps enjoying helping me and cleaning. While cleaning I take many breaks to play games and read with my Monkey. We sometimes take longer breaks to play outside. She loves riding her bike, blowing bubbles, watching Ice (my dog) catch bubbles and just running around. Sometimes we go to the beach she gets to feed the birds, catch fish and play in the sand.
We have lunch around 1-2pm. After chores and lots of playing my husband gets home depending on his schedule, sometimes he works day, mid or overnight shift. Monkey gets to play with daddy and I get dinner going. Then we have bath time and play until bedtime. She goes bed between 8-9pm. Thankfully, she sleeps through the night. That’s a typical day in our house. We also do play dates, field trips with our homeschool group, go to stores and out to eat. Her favorite store is Walmart so she always asks to go there.
