I started childminding last month. I have 4 kids of my own, the oldest is almost 13. Would love to hear how you organise your day.

I also have 4 - all boys aged 11, 8, 3 and 1.

As to organising my day, it revolves around the school, nursery runs, visit to play groups etc, feeding etc - so pretty much as it comes along!

Thank you for replying to my message.

Do you have to get up really early or do you go to bed really late? Or both.

Hello mum,

My little one usually wakes between 5.30 and 6.30, and if not him then the 3 year old will wake up around that time anyway. So fairly early mornings.

The older 2 have clubs etc on mon - wed, so this means not getting to bed much before 10/10.30 at least, and the other nights it depends what is happening - training, school things etc etc etc. I like early nights, but they are few and far between at the moment grin
