Part 2: How do you incorporate the activities into your baby/toddler's routine?

By making a schedule including the main activities such as meal time, nap time, etc. and then fitting the rest of the holes with other activities.

This is Part 2 to my earlier post

I learned a lot from other mothers who shared their sample schedule in their blogs. Here is a sample schedule of J's routine on Sundays (at 19 months). We have not achieved it yet, but this is my goal. With this post, I am commiting it to God to be accountable:

6 or 6.30am: Mommy wakes up, get change and prepare J’s breakfast

7 – 7.15am: Breakfast – Super porridge with vegetables

7.15 – 7.30am: Helping mommy clean up – load dishes into the dish-washer/counter-top/sink

7.30 - 8am: Potty (training) time, wash and dress

8 – 8.20am: Learning time - reading with mom, reading on my lap

8.20 – 8.40am: Blanket time + egg timer near the stair case with a toy, board books, teaching how to stack blocks, shapes, colours, letters, etc.

8.40 – 9am: Breakfast with the family

9 – 9.15am: Skype time with grandparents

9.15 – 10.30am: Chores time – sorting socks, bringing clean clothes to his room

10.30 – 11am: Lunch - Yogurt
