Wow - it has been awhile since my last post. We have survived Christmas - 4 versions of it - and are getting back into our routine. We thrive on routine. Zoe askes everyday what we are doing, where she is going, etc. I find it very interesting - she is definately my child!
My mother-in-law sent me the greatest calendar where there is a space for each person and what they are doing on a daily basis. Duffy has finally learned to use it - to actually look at it and see what we have going on instead of asking me all the time or saying he didn't know. I'm sure some people find it annoying that I'm always planning ahead, but when you have large extended families, friends, kids, work, and just plain old life, how can you not? And I know, as my kids get older, it will get busier and busier!
So, thank you to all who put up with my need to have things on my calendar - you are making my life more organized and helping my routine!
