Transitions – Daily Routine for a 15 Month-Old Toddler

Tips for creating a toddler routine

ImageThe following statement is going to sound weird, however I feel as though many moms would feel the same way if in this situation: It is hard transitioning from a full time working mom (or student, in my case) to a full time stay at home mom! I graduated from dental school last Friday and am currently in the process of finding a job, which means we have taken LO out of daycare while I am unemployed. She is so used to having such a set schedule at daycare and only seeing me for a couple hours per day. I’m used to more of a set schedule as well, and being able to do the things I want when I want to do them without having to worry about what to do with the LO. Understandably, this created a lot of push-and-pull and frustration! I was confused about what to do with a little toddler all day. Not to mention, our communication was lagging 😉 She definitely communicates what she wants, I just needed to get used to what everything meant! This caused her to be frustrated too!

But, not to fear, just as I was thinking that days at home full time were going to be torture, we figured each other out again!!! And it has been amazing – I’m not going to want to go back to work!
