FOR ME SUNDAY IS THE DAY WHICH I CAN USE TO FOCUS ON (EVERYTHING AS WELL AS ) MY KID. FOREMOST I GIVE PRIORITY FOR PRAYER ALONG WITH MY KID FOR HALF AN HOUR(ACTION SONGS,WORSHIP AND A PRAYER).THEN COLORING CARTOONS,THEN TOM AND JERRY OR ANY CARTOON(WHILE WATCHING WE FINISH BF), HE GOES OUT FOR ONE HOUR FOR CYCLING AND PLAYING IN PARK(I WILL CONCENTRATE ON HOUSE TOP WORKS,COOKING) THEN BATH,LUNCH, THEN A NAP WITH (SPELLING(WORD) GAME OR A ROLLING GAME IN BED) THEN ENGLISH AND OUR LANGUAGE VOCABULARY,WRITTEN EXERCISE, WATCHING DANCE PROGRAM..................THEN CHATTING WITH RELATIVES IN SKYPE AND ENDING THE DAY WITH THANKSGIVING TO MY LOVE JESUS.

With a split house hold trying to make some form of a plan for the weekend is a must for us. There are no kids in our neighborhood so saying hey go out and play doesnt work so well. We try to talk about it when the kids get here and see what they would like to do. Nothing is set in stone but we generally try to do something like go to the pool or park at least 1 of the days they are here. Anything bigger than that has to be planed in advance because we have 3 grown ups scheduals to deal with.

Planing week/weekend for litt one is a bit over do for me..But I do limit her TV time..put some activity she loves in her day..& just see what she loves to do whole day....
Try to put aday around her in such a way so that she can explore the most...she is too young to be tied in planning...But she do have a fix time to go to bed ..with some exception...

yes, we go for a walk every morning in summer while its still cool or in the afternoon in winter when it's a little warmer.
in summer, after our morning walk we have breakfast and he watches blues clues while i tidy the kitchen and bathrooms. then i get out paints/dough/a box of musical instruments/ walk around the house pointing out things in picture books like an apple, the fridge, chair etc.. while he naps i do things like iorning or washig the car - which i cat do while hes awake or i'll do general cleaning. then when he wakes we go to the shops and visit friends then come home. he sometimes has another nap and ill fix dinner to give hubby and i a little extra time together or we will watch cartoons read books play catchers or hide n go seek. then i'll do dinner when hubby gets home while he spends some time with john giving him his dinner then bathing him and putting him to bed. by the time john is in bed dinner is normally ready or almost ready. then we spend some time together eating a meal and watching a programme and then bed. on the weekends we go to the farm/ the beach or just stay at home relaxing and enjoying each other while fixing things/odd jobs around the house

My little guy isn't big enough to plan activities for yet. However, I do try to always work in reading (at least once a week) and special play time at least once a day. Starting this fall I am going to start having little activity times with him so he will get used to routines. (b/c I don't have him in childcare right now).....As he gets older I do plan on making sure he has things to do during the summer....but during the school year I think he will keep himself busy with school and activities...I mainly think this is a good idea because it can limit computer/TV time and make memories as a family!
