The Routine

Now that I am finally back from the black hole that is Iowa, the family has to get our routine together. Previously I was working a nice little schedule of 4am to noon but that really put a strain on the evenings as the Wifey wouldn't even get him until 8pm.

So now with my new job, I have more flexibility in my schedule which has quickly prompted the Wifey to make me in charge of dinners and such. But the tough part is tailoring our schedule with Baby's routine.

As soon as I pick her up from daycare, she goes straight to the fridge (she's definitely my child) and demands juice and a snack. And she will continue to snack up until the Wifey gets home so she's not really hungry for dinner. But she knows she has to eat with us and she will always grab her plate and head to her little table and sit and eat. We usually sit in the living room and eat and instead of the Baby sitting with us, she's over at her table picking at her food.

And then when we go to bed, we watch a little television before she falls asleep. I will usually turn to her and tell her "I'm going to turn the tv off now, okay?" And she will either start whining but most of the time she will say "okay. goodnight daddy, I love you" and then go to bed.

But hopefully we can get the routine down soon.
