What does your day-to-day schedule look like?

Just wondering what other SAHMs do with their children during the day. I am finding myself in a rut with my 2 year old son.

7:00am-DS1 wakes up. We get him out of bed, take him pee, and he plays quietly by himself in his playroom for 30 minutes while we finish waking up.

7:30am--We wake up, get dressed etc.

8:00am--We all head downstairs for breakfast

8:30am--Pee, Vitamins, brushing hair, tidy up after breakfast, and DS1 plays when he is done while he waits for school.

9:00-12:00--DS1 in school, I do errands, clean, have appointments, help with DH's work, laundry, prepare lunch, and have some me time.

12:00-12:30--usually talking with teacher or transitioning

12:30pm--Lunch time, then tidy up after lunch

1:00-2:00pm--Free Time (we play together or do things together, sometimes this is partially spent in transportation if we have an activity scheduled for that afternoon)

2:00pm--Violin (Wednesdays), Swimming Lessons (Thursdays), Stories and Crafts with Grandmother (Either Mon, Tues, or Fri).

On days when we don't have a 2pm scheduled, we ordinarily arrange for a play date, which usually means a friend coming here so their mom can have a break.

If its just us we do violin practice, play games, read books (this all sounds better than it is)

4:00pm--Quiet Time (DS1 plays in his playroom instead of napping as he's long outgrown naps)

4:30pm--I prepare dinner, sometimes DS1 will help with this depending on my patience and energy levels that day

5:00pm--supper time

5:30pm--Daddy arrives home

5:30-6:15--Quality Time with Daddy, sometimes includes bath time.

6:15pm--start bedtime routine (potty, teeth, hands, face, pj's, story time with daddy, special song and prayers with mommy)


7:00pm--We eat dinner together as a couple (or not, depending if I was able to wait or not, as well as a few other factors). Then we have the rest of the night to ourselves.

* this is going to change again in January as we are expecting another baby.
