For SOME reason the 4:30-6:30pm portion of any given day (weekday or weekend) is CRAZY at our house!!! Am I alone in this???
Quiet Time's over. Daddy's coming home soon. Dinner will be on the table soon.
Apparently "transition" means "let's be crazy nuts!". ;-)
So I'm gonna try changing my approach to the day to counteract this.
1- "recess" following afternoon Quiet Time (which ends usually around 4pm)
2- play soothing/quiet music when they come inside for dinner
3- dim the lighting to a few lamps
4- burn candles
We'll see if it works.
Anyone else got any ideas on how to create a mood of calmness as they day comes to a close?
