Quiet Time

We have introduced a new thing at home...something that comes at the most stressfull, ratty, noisy time of the day. We have begun having "quiet time". I know that this is not a new concept in the world, but it is new to us and it is heaven!

At around 4:30-5:30pm, when the kids are tired, grumpy, fighting and hungry is usually the time when the TV is on for chill out time. However, for me, watching the same cartoons over and over again while trying to get dinner ready can get on my nerves, despite my secret crush on Jimmy Giggle!

So that's where quiet time comes in. 30-ish minutes of stay in your own room and do something quiet. Genius!! While Alex is still getting the hang of staying in his room, Megan has taken Quiet Time on wholeheartedly. She will often sit and read through her mountains of books without interruption. She will check on her dolls to make sure they are sleeping and eating properly.

They are our of my hair and, best of all, out of each other's hair so there is quiet and no fights!!
