Schedule or NOT!

Be present every moment! Time is precious for all.

With all everyday tasks and all kind of schedules that I try to manage, kids, house, work, activities, sometimes I let myself down and overwhelmed. 

So, should we schedule or not?

Every day starts with making plans for that day…and it ends with making schedules for the next day. I’m tired of that wheel.

Everyone with kids knows what I’m saying.

I know kids love routines because it comforts them, but for me, it’s like hell.

Trying always something new it’s like a deep breath.

So how can I soothe everyone? Let things go with the flow. And it works.

Kids adapt very well to any situation, I’ve tested. Really! And we survived, all of us.

Last days we went to the beach, It wasn’t on our schedule, It just came up.

Kids were anxious, bored and noisy, I could not stand it anymore.

I and my husband were very undecided, we could not make a decision in that chaos. I could not stand another day at home, doing the same things over and over.

I had nothing packed, no snacks or toys for comfort, or sun lotions, nothing. Just our family car with the tank half empty.

So I grab things that were strictly necessary for that day, I stuffed them into the car, and we set out on our way.

Driving all the way it’s the best way to soothe the kids, and for me and my husband, it is like an oasis. Now I can hear my thoughts! 

I can’t make schedules cause’ I cannot follow them, even everyone talk about notes schedule and consider it’s the best way to organize…no, it’s not for us.

Every time I make a plan or schedule, it always ruins.

Not good when you have toddlers. You can not take your chances when you have toddlers.

So, it seems that day will remain memorable, with no schedule.

Keep it real!
