Evidently when I need to cook dinner my children decide that is the time they need me most ;) I guess it's because I have something to do that doesn't always involve them.
It's usually a time they begin to fight or become just moody. I remember my mom telling me how hard that time of day was with me and I didn't realize it until there were two. I try to include my children as much as I can, but sometimes I just need this time.
So now, after reading a post from the Kid Friendly blog, I realized they needed a little more structure during this time. So this night was coloring in an egg cartoon-who knew huh?
A daily activity is pulling the pots out. Fine with me! I even fill them with some water!
This time has been filled with whatever is on our craft shelf (that I showed before)! It has worked and we are all a little happier. Thank you for the idea.
