Make Your Home a Haven: Morning Routine


For the most part I do try to stay on schedule. I think that schedules work well for us and keep things from becoming to chaotic. I do need to be better at keeping us on schedule in the morning. I sometimes get distracted by chores or just play with the kids, but this past week of trying to stay on task has helped quite a bit. Our home was less stressful and just an overall happier place.

Here is my morning routine:

5:30 ~ wake up & Exercise
6:30 ~ Quiet Time: Scripture reading & prayer
6:45 ~ Pick one household chore to do or check mail
7:00 ~ shower, dressed, bed made
7:30 ~ littles wake; breakfast & cartoons
8:00 ~ empty dishwasher, put breakfast dishes away; start load of laundry
8:30 ~ help littles get dressed, teeth brushed, beds made
9:00 ~ Chore time for the littles & then play time
10:00 ~ School Time
11:30 ~ Lunch time

Now, this is my ideal morning routine. Does it always happen? No, but when it does things are glorious! I strived for this last week and things were much easier and calmer. The kids were happier, which of course made me happier as well.

I find it fun to see other routines. It sometimes helps me to improve mine. Stop by and visit Monica and Wendi for some other routines.

  1. So how old are you kiddos and what do you do for school? I'm just trying to get more ideas for what to do with my little guy. :) Thanks for sharing your routine!
