New schedule

The last two weeks we have been adjusting to a new schedule.  Before on Monday through Thursday our schedule was something like:

Allow Austin to wake on his own 7:30-8:30
Snuggle/cartoon time till 8:30-9:00
breakfast 8:30-9:00
play time till 10:00-10:30
nap 10:30
wake up at 12:00
daycare 12:30
work for me 1:00-5:00pm
dinner 6:00
bath 7:00
bed 8:00

Austin was really only getting the one early morning nap and would sometimes nap when we got home from work/daycare.  He would be so tired by bed time.  And about a month ago he stopped taking the morning nap.  They claimed that he would take a nap at daycare, but even if he did he was only napping an hour. 

Since he turned two they had space available in the morning for him at daycare, so I jumped at the chance to switch.  Now I get up at 6:00 and have coffee and me time.  I wake him up at 7:00 and get him dressed and we head to daycare.  I am at work by 8:00 and work until 1:00.  I pick him up at 1:30 after he is just finishing lunch up there.  He has been falling asleep in the car and naps at home until about 4:30.  He is much more rested in the evening and we bumped back his bath time to 7:30 and bed time to 8:30.

It is taking time for me to get used to getting up first thing in the morning as I used to sleep until I woke up on my own.  I am much more productive at work and it's easier to coordinate with other people in the mornings.


  1. That is so nice to be able to switch times for work! I would much prefer to go in at 8 and be done by 1!

    I am getting more and more excited for our trip! Can't wait to see you guys!

  2. How awesome! That is the perfect work schedule!

  3. Yes, I am excited to see you guys! I only wish you guys lived closer to a city, so the two of us could go shopping! :)

    We are going to take his parents car, and they are going to have his brothers car from St. George on...speaking of I need to know the name of the town you live in so we can figure out how to get there! :) We were going to rent a car from St George to you guys to the rest of our trip back to Vegas, but then his brother decided to go so we have to take 2 cars either way since we won't all fit in one.


Thanks for taking the time to leave me a comment!
