WW: Routine.

Happy Wednesday friends!

After a week of the sickies over here (stomach bug in August?) we are up and running again. Oh happy joy.

Today I was thinking about how happy I am that I finally feel like our home, our days and weeks, are falling back into our normal routine.
Cute, right?

I mean, if you have a little person at your house your worst nightmare is a missed nap. Or a late nap. Or an early nap. I have such a love/hate relationship with the word nap.

I love summer, but it can throw a good routine out the window.

And for the stay-at-home mom, routine equals sanity. Am I right? We love knowing what to expect. 
What a stigma! It basically infers that a routine person is boring, non-progressive and stuck. And I get it- professionally, too much routine is a yawn. In relationships, yeah, you don't want to get too comfortable or things become stagnant.

But for the life of a toddler?
Can I get an Amen?!

Routine in exercise? A win! In an educational setting? An 'A'!

So I say, routine can be a good thing in the right setting. It creates order and the allusion of control. Which, after all, is exactly what we Type A's need.

Now all I need to do, is incorporate more of that "routine" thing into my weekly workout regimen...

Happy wife happy life, y'all,
