For example, this photo above… This used to completely stress me out. The kids all falling asleep in the car, meaning they won’t take naps at home. “Ahhhh….it’s ruining our schedule!!!”
Since I’ve chilled out a little, it’s really ok. We just rearrange our day. Things look different that day, & we all survive. Yes, I do see the value in routine & predictability of schedules for kids. However, a little variety is good for them too. It adds interest & makes them more flexible!
