In Action: Adjusting Schedule as Needed

As I mentioned earlier, Brayden had surgery last week. The nature of his bandaging on his hand is that he cannot get it wet at all. Because of this, I knew bathing the children together was out of the question.

We typically have sibling playtime, bathtime, then independent playtime. The reason I do the bath between the two items is that I don’t think they would very excitedly go to independent playtime after playing together. Right now is winter for us, so to these things happen in bedrooms (in nice weather I like to have sibling playtime outside). If they were outside for sibling playtime, I think they would do independent following sibling without problem.

So, I knew I had to rethink our order while Brayden has the bandage on his arm/hand. Here is a breakdown:

Old Schedule:

  • Breakfast
  • Do our letter/color/number etc. of the day activity
  • Singing time
  • Sibling playtime
  • Bathtime
  • Independent playtime

New Schedule:

  • Breakfast
  • Do our letter/color/number etc. of the day activity
  • Singing time
  • Independent playtime
  • Get ready for the day
  • Sibling playtime

Bathtime for Brayden is each night right before bed. Either my husband or I have him stand in the tub and hold his hand up while we bathe him. It is fast.

Bathtime for Kaitlyn has varied based on the day. Some days it has been in the evening. Others, it has been in the middle of the day after lunch before nap. She does this instead of TV time.

It has worked well. It has me thinking of different possible orders of activities for when the new baby comes. I am working through all options before I decide. I wanted to post this to show that you can adjust schedule as needed. You also need to adjust schedule as needed. Sometimes you get comfortable with what you are doing without realizing it isn’t the best option. I don’t know exactly how/if I will change the original schedule for when the new baby comes, but I will be sure to keep you updated!
