Thanks for the great ideas! I have a friend who just had her 3rd child and is trying to figure out how to have alone time with each of them. Do you accomplish that, and if so how?
I do strive to have a little alone time with the boys each day. Most days I accomplish it but if I don't it's no biggie. I play with all three boys in the morning time. Sometimes all of us together sometimes I skip from one to one as they start up a new activity, and sometimes I just sit back and watch, all ways there to jump in if need be. At 9:30 I feed Jack and he takes his nap. Once he is in bed(10:00) I let Caden have his 30 minute computer turn(educational games). While Caden is on the computer I focus my time on Drake (reading books, coloring, snuggling, doing an activity, or just following him to wherever he wants me to be:) At about 5 till Drake goes potty, I brush his teeth and he goes down for his nap(10:30). I then tell Caden he has one minute left on the computer and then it's his time with Mommy. He loves this time so he usually quits right then and I ask him what he would like to do and we do it. Sometimes I have something planned or something in mind but usually we wing it. Jacks gets so much time with me while nursing that I don't worry to much about getting a specific 30 minutes with him, besides it seems like his favorite thing is to watch the boys do their activities. So that's how I do it:) We also try and get alone time with Daddy, it's a work in progress.
