WWJD (Work With Jello Daily)

Work With Jello Daily... something I learned in MIT (missionary in training) bootcamp. In other words, be flexible -- really flexible.

Flexibility, I have learned, is a trait very useful with small children. I had an entire schedule planned out for the girls and I today... and guess what? Yes, everything changed so I didn't even bother conjuring up another schedule. It sounds crazy, but I actually enjoy the challenge of an up-in-the-air schedule. Plans change at the last minute? Okay. We need to flip morning and afternoon schedules? Sure.

Life is a lot easier when you're laid-back.

Flexibilty works like that. Unless you've got a deadline to meet, then flexing ain't to great.

What was the original schedule?

Too long to list here. I had every single hour of my entire day planned.

In this case, I didn't have any deadlines, so that was fine. However, I can be a nervous wreck when it comes to school.

Whooops... I was signed in as my mom. That really was me talking.

Schedules are sometimes useful. I usually just have a few objectives for the day and leave room for all of the other things that will inevitably come up!

I was wondering who Barbara was... Acctually, I didn't notice until you pointed it out. :D

How much of the day involved Jello originally?

When you work with children, flexibility is unavoidable!!
