Great post on SimpleMom about the value of routines with kids

Tsh on SimpleMom has an excellent article today about the value of thinking about, and developing your own routines with kids

There’s nothing magical about any one particular routine — it’ll probably change in a month anyway, as routines often do with little ones in the house. But simply having some sort of written-out plan helps me know what’s next, how to stay focused, and not feel like I’m running in a hamster wheel.

I love this thought.  I can get stuck in a stupid perfectionist rut where I wrote out a routine a month ago that was okay then, for like five minutes, and then it didn’t work for me any more, but I still felt guilty for not following that particular routine.  I’m just happy to be “allowed” to edit my routine as I wish!
