My wake up time is sometimes different but the kids are always up at this time no matter what

5 am - kids wake up
5:45 am - dh makes kids breakfast if i am up i will help cook or entertain kids
6:15 am - clean up breakfast mess/ get everyone changed/dressed and ready for the day
7:00 am - kids play until whenever I get up if I am still sleeping. (rare)
we pretty much do nothing until closer to school time/bus. we basically watch kid show, clean, play, outside etc.
11:45 am - Walk out to DD bus stop, bus is supposed to come at 11:45 but its always late.
12:15 pm - go home from bus stop, make smaller kids lunch and mine.
1:00 pm - NAPTIME! I try to get 2 yr old to nap sometimes he will, sometimes he wont. Baby naps all through out the day, so no set times.
2:00 pm - if he naps we run any errands needed if he fights it we go early and i pray he passes out during the drive.
3:25 pm - get raleigh from bus stop, makes snack, homework etc.
Thats about all thats predictable because some nights i go into work at 4 pm, 5 pm, 7 pm or 8 pm.

If I dont work until 6 or 7 then I make dinner, if I work early then dh figures that out when he gets home. I always meet him at my job with the kids so he can take them home because I dont have enough time to get to work if I wait for him to get home from work. So we are always on the go it seems

I know dh does bedtime and the kids are all put in bed at 7 pm, moving it up to 6:40 though because ds has been trying to skip his naps and he needs bedtime by 5, lol. I work until anyways from 12 am, 2 am or 3 am. I get home usually around 3:30 or 4 and sleep, get up and do it all over again the next day.

All days are different because we have a lot of dr apts thrown in there every week, DD has gymnastics on Wed night and Ballet on Thursday night.
