Am I Wrong To Have No Routine?

  
With five children to care for surely routine should be my top priority you would think.  Well not in this house!

  
Don’t get me wrong when I’m rushing around first thing in the morning trying to iron uniform and find shoes I really wish I was more organised.  

 

There have been so many occasions that I’ve had the radiator on in the blistering heat to try and get clothes dry that are needed, I’m constantly running back to the school with forgotten PE kits and school lunches, we are always running out of milk and cereal as I never remember what I need on the weekly shop.

 

But what are the children going to remember?  Their perfectly packed PE kit or a last minute trip to the park, a beautifully scrubbed kitchen floor or a messy craft session, an empty washing bin or helping out making their favourite dinner.

 
Life passes us by so quickly and I would much rather be remember as a scatty Mum with a dirty kitchen floor and overflowing washing bin that tried to fill each an everyday with something fun than the other way round!

What is family life like for you?  Do you find routine makes your life easier?
