So one way of dealing with the mess that I'm facing each day is to plan, organise and establishing a routine. But it only works if people actually follow my plan and organisation.
The thing is, you can't make an adult follow your habits because they have their own. Kids on the other hand can be moulded any way you want as long as you have lots and lots of patience.
So i gave up in making the husband follow my way because he has his own way and it works for him so fine. Better give up then feeling all stressed up about it.
Back to the planning and organising. It works most days but on days when everything goes haywire there's no more sticking to d plan and your routine goes out the window and it takes awhile for you to get back into it
But lets just focus on how it could work. Most days.
So the plan.
Get up before the baby's up which is 5am. Clean, pump, do whatever it is that I have to that I can't do if he's awake.
Pack nursery stuff and school stuff preferable the night before. If not possible, do it first thing in the morning.
Iron everyone's clothes on weekend. Uniforms, work shirts, baju kurungs, etc.
Do laundry early saturday morning so that it will dry and can fold either the day itself or Sunday. Somedays I'm lucky that mom does it. So a big hug there.
Get a rice cooker with Porridge function. Easier because due to Arfan's intolerance towards cow's milk I prefer sending home cooked meals to his nursery. Plus haven't had such luck with slow cooker.
Try getting everyone to sit down TOGETHER during the dinner time. Saves time.
P.s: no one suggest getting a maid to me pls because that is not an option and will not be an option anytime soon. Plus that comes with a whole set of other problems if I'm unlucky so no thanks.
