We just updated our schedules because we eliminated David’s naps, and we had to account for all that time.

Bedtime at 9:00 pm
Yes, you read that right: Our two year old only sleeps a total of nine hours a day. Frankly, he is usually up earlier than six, but I send him back to bed or make him cuddle with me until at least 6:00 am unless I am already up early working, then I will let him get up with me. The rest of my children sleep more, especially that young.
Now, I realize that is pretty structured. I do fluctuate how I am scheduling our days. Right now, I am going for more structure because I have several projects going and need to make sure I am not neglecting the important duties of motherhood, wife, and home educator and being stricter helps me do that. When life is pretty relaxed, this tight of a schedule would be too much. What are your favorite scheduling tips? What does a typical day at your house look like?
