From 3-5pm my little angels, turn into little demons.
Trying to help 4 kids get their homework done, afterschool snacks, hearing about everyones day,keeping up with a now somewhat mobile baby, getting ready for Scouts and other activities, making dinner...ugh.
It is just too crazy sometimes.
Sometimes, when my kids are just too out of control, I make them run laps. It's true. Around here we call them HEALTHY HEART LAPS.
Depending on how crazy I feel they are acting that is how I determine how many they do!
They are not always happy to do it, as you can tell by the pictures of my oldest son, but they usually are calm afterward. If not, they go back out for more.
Does that sound too harsh?! I don't think so. They need an outlet for their energy and tv & video games just don't cut it!
Is there anything you do to keep the calm at the witching hour?
