If You Can't Beat 'Em, Join 'Em

The witching hour. Parents have dreaded the hours of 5-7pm for eons. The sun goes down, Mom is tired, dinner needs to be fixed, homework done..... and the kids turn into little werewolves. Good times.

It is a time to buckle down, grit your teeth, and crack the whip.

Or, play Freeze Dance:

  1. Awe, they're having so much fun!

  2. Totally steeling this idea ... How come your witching hour is so short?? Is that a time zone thing? Our last from 3 till 9. Or at least it feels that way sometimes.

  3. Thanks for the laugh. And the tip. I'm changing all of my, um, coping mechanisms, so all suggestions welcome!

  4. Oh Lordy...I used to call it the arsenic hour because I never knew if I should take it or give it. LOL. Dancing is a much better idea. :)

  5. AWESOME. I love it that this will be their memory of "All Along the Watchtower..." ;)
