Our Lockdown routine

We've been in lockdown in the UK for almost two weeks now and honestly when it was first announced I had no idea what I was going to do with Harry. Sam is a key worker and so still going to work, meaning that for even more of the time it's just me at home with a very bored Harry, not the ideal situation but after a few days of letting chaos reign I decided we needed some kind of routine. So here is how our days have been looking

6:00 am roughly is wake up time. Harry will wake up any time between 5:30 and 7:00am. 6:00 am has been the norm in our house lately and I will usually try and stretch it out until 6:30, it doesn't always work. The TV in my room is usually on by 10 past with one of Harry's current favourite shows on. 

6:30 am is when I've woken up properly and we venture off downstairs. Harry's nappy comes off and he gets a drink and carries on watching his shows until around 8:00am when we get breakfast started. It varies from day to day what we have for breakfast depending on what we have in and what we fancy. Some days it's just a bowl of cereal, other days we have eggs on toast or fruit and yoghurt. 

After breakfast, we both get dressed. While potty training Harry hasn't been wearing anything on his bottom half and we are taking full advantage of being home to let him get used to it! However, getting dressed makes us both feel better and more productive. 

Then at 9:00am we start with some educational stuff. Harry is due to start school in September and I worry that being home will make him seriously behind, so I jumped on Amazon and ordered two wipe clean workbooks. The fact that they are Peppa Pig definitely helps him concentrate.

We try and do educational activities until around 10:30 am when Harry is ready for a snack. This is usually something small, then at 11:00 am its nap time. This doesn't happen every day but it definitely helps us get through the day when it does happen. If Harry doesn't nap we tend to have some downtime. Usually back in bed for a snuggle and rest, with either the TV on or reading some books. This tends to be for around an hour when we get up and get lunch. Lunch again varies, but lately, Harry has been loving carrot, cucumber and hummus.

After lunch we try to do something fun, could be baking, drawing and colouring, crafts or playing in the garden.

We tend to have our main evening meal (we call it tea in our house but whatever you want to call it) around 5:30/6pm. Its what works for us. Then once that is finished we have some chill-out time before Harry is off to bed around 7pm!

What are your lockdown days looking like?

Birth Story

Harry's birth story seemed like a fitting first post on here. Bear with me because it was written months ago. More posts to follow ever...
