Set up the 2-2-5-5 access schedule now and follow it.

Monday and Tuesday you are responsible for everything regarding the kids.
Wednesday and Thursday the other parent.
Rotate the responsibilities for the children over the weekends and 5 day Stretches.

Week 1:

Monday (you)
Tuesday (you)
Wednesday (other parent)
Thursday (other parent)
Friday (other Parent)
Saturday (other parent)
Sunday (other Parent)

Week 2:

Monday (you)
Tuesday (you)
Wednesday (other parent)
Thursday (other parent)
Friday (you)
Saturday (you)
Sunday (you)

Week 3:

Repeat week 1.

See how the 2-2-5-5 works? You each get 2 nights a week consistently and 5 day stretches over the weekend with the kids that rotate.

On days marked you... You get them back and forth to school, make their lunches, help them with their homework, get them to after school activities, etc... Without relying upon the other parent even though they live under the same roof. In fact, on days not designated as your responsibility... You can be somewhere else.

This is going to be the reality of the situation. You won't be able to call upon each other in a moment's notice on those days to take up the slack/help. Parents, more than children need to adjust to the new schedule and difference.

If you establish a 2-2-5-5 equal residency schedule with the other parent up-front and joint custody you will have significantly less issues residing together. You can also research "nesting" or "bird nest".
