The bewitching hours...

I swear someone stops time at our house between 4 and 6pm. The rest of the day moves by at a relatively steady pace. Then late afternoon/evening comes and the clocks just don't CHANGE on minute intervals, I am quite sure. Time drags along as I drag my son along hanging on my leg while I attempt to get dinner on the table. When will the phone call come that reinforcements are on there way? Poor Marc if he happens to leave 5 minutes late from work because let me tell you 5 minutes at this time of day may as well be 5 hours.

I love being a stay at home mom but I think I'd like to find a job from 4-6pm every day even if the salary does no more than cover the childcare I'd need during the time. Anyone hiring? Anyone want to babysit 5 days a week from 4-6? Perhaps along with all the bills going through congress, we should add one in called "Stay at Home Moms Relief Act" and provide stay at home moms with help from 4-6 every day. I'd pay more taxes for that one;) (Can you you just IMAGINE what my congresswoman would do if I called her with that idea?:)


  1. Our house is the same way...except that at 4pm I am just walking in the door from work and the kids have a complete meltdown (usually with tears and all)and continue on and off until bedtime. I drag them around as I cook dinner and try to occupy them with playing with the cupboards, only that provides me with more messes to clean up. SO, if you do get this bill passed, would you please include working outside of the house moms too? :->

  2. Wesley is a calm little dude so far, but he too is starting to get into the 4-6 or 7pm fussy groove. Oy! Hopefully I can get the pouch on soon to carry him around and my incision won't hurt too bad!

  3. Sure- we'll title it- "Mom's Relief Act"
