Mommie_Jen Posted September 18, 2012 Share Posted September 18, 2012 My babes are 5 and 3 (next week). By the time dinner comes around in the evenings, I am DONE. Just grouchy and tired. I don't want to read. I don't want to play. I don't want to basically do anything with them because I've been at it since 7 am constantly. (and they've been touching me, needing me, talking to me, hanging on me, etc all day!) DH is home by that time, but the primary child care is mine. He's around to read books, play, etc, but the bedtime/story/all that jazz is my baby. His work is pretty high stress right now so he's easily frustrated at night and doesn't have the patience to run the evening routine either. I've tried caffeine. I've tried a short cat nap while they watch a Netflix. How do you get through the final push of the day with younger kids when you are just DONE?
