Establishing a Routine

John and I tend to have lazy mornings, especially when we have no where to go. Sometimes I am astonished at how long we stay in our jammies. Yesterday I decided to try to be better about having a morning routine.

I took pictures of him doing all the different parts of his morning routine and made a book about his morning. I know it will be really good for John and train him to have good habits and be more independent as time goes on. Also this will help me to stay on track too! - Actually it is probably more for me than it is for him!! =)

This morning was our first time using the book. When he woke up, I grabbed the book and we did all the things that he is shown doing in the book. It worked really well. I plan on doing this every morning until he is able to predict each step of the routine.


  1. So so SO cute Lindsey! You are such a good mama-its like a Child's Rule of Life-routine and order. Perfect for establishing habits of the priesthood :)

  2. This is so cute. What a great keepsake.

  3. That's awesome! I might make one of those for myself ;).
