We discussed a change of routine on Wednesday to get Reagan in bed earlier it meant me starting Reagan tea as soon as I get in from collecting her from me mums so that by the time Jamie gets in at around 19:00 Reagan will already be in the bath.
So I tried it, I got in at 18:00 and immediately sat her in the chair and gave her some snacks while I cooked her tea, now while she is eating I don’t like leaving her alone so I felt tied to just cooking and didn’t do a lot else which made me feel a little embarrassed and lazy when Jamie walk through the door to a dirty kitchen and no tea.
At 19:00 we were upstairs and getting ready for a bath and the usual routine after that gained us a little less than 30 minutes and we then had to go down and make tea for ourselves…when we would normally be settling down in front of the TV with a clean kitchen and full bellies?
I just don’t think anyone really benefited from it I know I certainly didn’t and although Reagan got to sleep half an hour sooner I’m not sure whether that benefited her at all she still slept through till 8’ish and we got up to a dirty kitchen.
We will do it as normal again tonight and maybe talk about a different approach for Monday…?
