I don’t know what it is about 5 p.m., but it seems like most children just seem to fall apart about that time.
Right as I’m trying to get the house picked up and dinner going, those little ones just want to be held, snuggled, or lay on the floor and cry.
Over the years, I’ve learned some tricks to make that hour of the day go a little more smoothly for all of us:
I don’t remember having anything I slept with as a child (although I distinctly remember that both of my younger brothers had blankets they loved).
When I had children of my own, I didn’t give much thought to whether or not they would have something special to snuggle with when they went to bed.
And I love that they have them! Here are four reasons I think they are a lifesaver.
My youngest sister recently announced that she’s expecting her first baby (hooray!), and it has me thinking about the maternity clothing that I found most useful.
Sadly, all my maternity clothing is packed up in boxes on the other side of the country for the next eight months, so I can’t lend her my work-horse pieces, but at least I can share my wisdom gained over two pregnancies of what’s worth the money.
