Well we homeschool so there’s no big morning rush or flurry of activity. Around 7:30 we eat breakfast together and I don’t leave for work until 8:45. So it is pretty laid back and easy to balance.

Sometimes the kids wake up early and I’ll have to go put them back to sleep. Other times they’ll come out early and snuggle with me. It isn’t always perfectly routine but I try to go with the flow.

After dinner we pick up and clean the house as a family. I put my two older kids to bed and read them books. My wife puts the youngest to bed.

Hopefully that puts things in perspective a bit more!
