We love the weekends and holiday breaks at our home. It’s our time to go out and have fun exploring. However, sometimes our long breaks and weekends can throw off our routines. It is really important to keep our kiddos on routines, even on the weekend. I was reading through the new TomaLeche.com website and read this great post reminding me of the importance of having set routines for our kiddos. It’s important to make sure that no matter what happens, we stay to those routines. I have to admit that I struggle with this on the weekends. I want to play and through routines out the door. I notice that when that happens, Mondays are rough on all of us. Keeping a routine is crucial in helping our kiddos do well in school. I loved all of the tips and reminded me to make sure to follow all of them, even on the weekends and during those holiday breaks.
