Back to Rhythm

A lot has happened for Little in the past few months.
We have moved
She has started preschool
Which means she is not playing with her nanny
Mama has had to work more
Daddy has had to work in a different city sometimes.
Pretty much her whole world got turned upside down.

While it has been tough for me I am an adult and have some coping skills to deal with it. Truth be told even though most of the changes have been positive they are still some times hard. I have been having a rougher time dealing with it then I thought.

Sometimes I’m slow on the uptake but I realized if I am having a hard time coping then what must she be going through?

So finally yesterday I printed out her routines for her. She has had them before. She calls them her maps. Her map of How to get to bed.

I always start with our night routine because it sets up the morning to work well. You can find this one here.

Her map of how to get herself ready in the morning.  You can find a morning routine in the same place or you can find this one here.
Litte was really happy to see them. She loves to know what is coming next and loves to feel like she is “in charge” of her getting ready. I choose this morning routine because it had a hair brush on it and that is something Little does not like at all! Already she has seen it and gone over the routine and said that she needs to brush her hair which is a small miracle given usually that is somewhat of a daily battle. I love setting her up for success and not having to nag. All in all a win win!

  1. That is such a wonderful thing to do for your precious little one. You are teaching her so much more than you think! She’s a lucky little girl to have you for a Mom!

  2. Schedules are so important for little ones to have a sense of stability. And it’s so great that putting on sunscreen is part of your morning routine!

Br0ken Girl Diaries

“Once, I can’t remember, I was long ago, someone strange. I was innocent and wise, and full of pain. Now that I’m a woman, everything has changed. Once, when I was searching, somewhere out of reach, far away, in a place I could not find, or heart obey. Now that I’m a woman, everything is strange.” – Amalthea from The Last Unicorn.
