I have a new favorite picture. Many thanks, Landria.
Ahhh. If only life were always this cute.
Increasingly, life in our home is LOUD and a bit chaotic and whiny--especially in the early morning and the 'witching hours' from 5pm-7pm. K & P are transitioning out of naps. I am still requiring that they rest quietly in their beds for 45 minutes every afternoon, but they are miserable by 7pm...and still waking around 6am.
When my husband and I were married, I told him my primary goal as the lady of the house was to make sure our home was always a place of peace and rest. His work is hectic, fast-paced and stressful. At the end of a 12-14 hour day, I want our home to be an oasis. He has expressed his appreciation for my prioritizing peace and order in the past. Lately, I am finding it incredibly difficult to create this environment because everyone is so wound up in the late afternoons.
So, I am asking for tips, suggestions..Help! Any great tips on how to restore some peace and order around here in the late afternoons would be greatly appreciated.
