Kind of trippy huh? A few years ago if you had told me this would be my life, I wouldn't have believed you. Weirder still is that both of us hope there will be a few more heads in Christmas Card 2017. They can make you completely nuts and completely happy at the same time. I don't know how to explain it.
Who knew that sanity would come from a routine?!? It's taken me almost a year of mulling things over in my brain, a few books, more than a few blog posts, and several conversations to come up with it and finally this weekend I typed it out and made it Law. It is a routine, not a schedule and so far it's totally working for us!
I know, I know. FlyLady has heavily influenced it. As has Toddlerwise. And the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. What can I say? I've been drinking a lot of Kool-aid. What it really comes down to is that my sister has scared the bajeezus out of me with stories of what happens when you screw these small people up. I don't want that on my head and I need all the help I can get.
