Bump for prep mums
Bump for prep mums
I have one in year one this year:
3:05pm school pick up.
3:15pm get home, unpack bag, put on play clothes, have afternoon tea, tv time.
4:30pm start homework, I start dinner prep.
5:30pm eat dinner, talk about our days.
6:15pm eat dessert.
6:30pm read the guided reader and talk about it.
7:00pm brush teeth and relax.
7:30pm pick a story book to share, I read the book in his bed.
2 afternoons per week, he goes to after school care and I pick him up at 4.30pm.
2 afternoons per week has sporting commitments of soccer training and swimming lessons.
I have one in prep and one in year 3.
3.30 Pick up - if it's a nice day on a monday or friday we stay for a bit at school and play on the equipment.
4pm home, snack, unpack lunchboxes (they have to do it).
DS in yr 3 has to do his homework (10mins on Mathletics, he does his reading at bedtime).
DD in prep usually will just play for a bit and then eventually ask for the ipad to play games on.
7.30pm bed and books (DD goes at 7.20 for books).
Monday they have swimming after school so it's usually chicken and chips or something quick and easy so as not to make it a late night.
Tues & Thurs DS has activities so everything is out of sync and dinner is later so bedtime more like 8pm but no books, straight to bed.
Wednesday they will both be going to aftercare but get picked up at 5pm so routine stays the same.
For those that have a bed time of 7.30pm, what time do your LO's actually fall asleep? Or they asleep at 7.30pm?
DD goes to bed at 7.30 and most nights I swear she's asleep in 30 seconds.
DS is 8, he will read till 8pm but will still be annoying us at 9.30 some nights - that boy has fought sleep his entire life. We end up having to threaten bans to get him not to come out again!
