Someone woke up early from her nap.
And someone else was too lazy to leave the house for a fun activity.
So outside to the water table we went.
Mommy, it's too bright. I need glasses!
I struggle with mid to late afternoon activities.
We almost always have a big activity or a bunch of errands in the mornings.
But after nap time is my tired time of day, and I often don't have the energy to head out the door again.
And bubbles. I need lots and lots of bubbles.
Lily has this figured out and will wake up from her nap begging to watch TV.
While she does get a fair amount of screen time during breakfast or while I'm cooking dinner, I try to make a rule of no TV during the day.
So it's a daily struggle for me. Leave the house, come up with an at-home activity, or resort to Dora the Explorer.
Lily, no drinking the bubbles!
And Daddy was on his way home.
Afternoon = success!
How do you get through the late afternoons?
