What does your week look like? Do you plan for each day?

Just wondering what everyone else does really. We just moved rurally and I'm getting a bit lonely and bored stuck at home with 20m DS and being pregnant with #2. We're 40mins drive away from our old mum pals which is doable once a week or so but not much more.

I've got on to Google and started looking up and joining groups etc, so now so far our week is looking like:

Monday - new local playgroup (am)
Tuesday - Montessori playgroup (am)
Wednesday - during term time I work mornings and DH is home
Thursday - music group and swimming class
Friday - nada

Does this look like a lot to you or is it fairly normal? It's a big increase in our week from before!

Looks very similar to my week when ds was that age! I now have a 3 year old and an 18 month old and ds goes to pre school one day and one morning a week so now our week look like this:
Monday- ds in pre school 9.15-2.45. Today I took dd to a local converted mill/art gallery/fancy book shop and went for a long walk.
Tuesday- am toddler group. Sonetimes invite my friend over in the afternoon
Wednesday- nothing organised. We usually have a walk around the village/feed ducks/go to library
Thursday- ds has pre school in the morning. I take dd out somewhere and we have a quiet afternoon.
Friday- am toddler group. I clean all afternoon, the kids go feral and 'help'.

Yep. Mon is usually Park or town. Tues pm we usually meet grandma. We'd am and Thurs am are playgroups. Fri is food shop and grandma perhaps.

Monday: music class
Tuesday: nothing
Wednesday: dance class
Friday: am toddler group pm: library book group

I am in exactly the same situation as gou but maybe 6 months from where you are (moved rurally 8 months ago and now have a 2 and 6 month old).

I feel like I don't do enough. You look busy and I would like to be equally so. But its hard with 2!

When I was a SAHM of 2 and then 3 (eldest at school) we went to something like a playgroup/singing/library group 3 mornings a week. 1 morning at the park or walking down river to the supermarket. 1 morning at home.

DH as SAHD living now in a slightly less urban area has been doing 2 playgroups, 1/2 park/walk a week with dc3 in the morning fitted around 2 school runs.

Okay so it sounds like a couple of playgroups and groups each week is fairly normal, I was worried it'd be too much for us both running around to them. Thanks for sharing what you all do, it's good to compare. *

Not* I know it's going to be harder with two... trying to make the most of my time just with DS now before baby arrives.

I was never in! I found life with 2 little ones much better out and about doing things.

Our routine.ds1 is 4 and in pre school 5 Mornings a week. Pick him up at 1145. Ds 2 is 2 and with me all the time
Monday- coffee morning
Thursday-toddler group
Friday-no plans

In the afternoons we go to the shops, meet friends, swim, go to soft play, go to the park.

We don't spend that much time at home, I find everyone is happier if we get out and about

Agreed. Your plans sound very minimal. When I was at home I was rarely in. Maybe one morning or afternoon a week. But horses for courses.

Are you near a library? They might do baby rhyme time
