Each day I try to stick to a flexible routine with dd. We wake up, have breakfast which is usually PB toast, yogurt and fruit. She's not a big eater in the morning. Then it's play time. It can be hard finding a balance between interactive play time and doing chores/ homework. I try to spend most of the morning sitting on the floor with her, doing puzzles, reading books, coloring with beeswax crayons. I also try to fit in a few mins of reading or a couple chores for myself. I actually find these activities relaxing now. When I do my own thing, I put on a dvd for dd. We are new to the dvd world, we only got a tv recently, and I try to keep it to a minimum.
