On Friday I did manage to only check my email right away in the morning and then the kids and I played in Bryce's room until lunchtime. We built things with blocks, played cars, put puzzles together, read books and watched a movie. There was only a little fighting. That is not to say the entire day went smoothly and that the time I spend working on the computer is the source of all our problems, it certainly isn't. Our afternoons are always the roughest part of the day, I'm not sure why...but we/I always struggle during that time. My patience seems shorter the kids seem crabbier, I don't know what our issue is but we definitely struggle. Maybe we need a little more structure in our afternoon? It is just hard because Bryce's naps are so sporadic lately so I never know if/when and for how long he'll nap. Friday was no different, we had our moments and dinner again was a disaster. But when everyone was finally down for the night I felt good about the day. I guess that is a step in the right direction.
