We have what we call "the witching hour" around here. That stretch from 4:00-5:00 is HARD! When Derek is home, they dance and play and go run around outside. It helps push through that sleepy, hungry hour while I make dinner.
BUT! Derek works late on Wednesdays and Thursdays, so first off, I don't make dinner. Not really anyway, just small and quick.
And secondly, their awesome, super-fun daddy is missing, so that hour is even harder.
Today, this is what we did:
We wrapped ourselves up in blankets and hid from one another.
We (And by "we" I mean Spencer and Henry) fought over the "new" popper that my visiting teacher brought for the boys.
And Henry took our pictures.
I may frame that one...
Henry got mad when I took the camera away.
And to top it off, we had hot homemade rolls and hot chocolate for dinner. Oh, and I opened a can of mandarin oranges. GO ME!
So, do you have that hour of the day when you try your hardest not to completely LOSE it??? How do you get through?
