We’re wrapping up our week on Babywise myths today. Our last post comes from Emily at The Journey of Parenthood. She has 3 kiddos and is in the process of adopting her fourth.
Emily’s post debunks the myth that scheduling isn’t possible with multiple children. I have four children myself, but since my oldest is still 3, I haven’t had the difficulty of scheduling naps around school or activity drop off and pick up. To be honest, it sounds really intimidating to me! Emily is proof that it can definitely be done, and she gives me hope for the years ahead when my older ones do start going to school.
I think the reason people assume Babywise scheduling isn’t possible with multiple children is because we do tend to “slack” more the more kids we have. You have to! Your life can’t revolve around one child because you have more than one child. I’m here to say though that you don’t have to veer off course just because you have more than one child under your roof!
And that finishes off our Babywise Mythbuster week at the Babywise Friendly Blog Network. Catch up on all the other posts here:
