Stress-Free Dinner Time. Is it even possible? Dinner time is one time of day that I hadn’t really worked out a good routine for. My daily schedule went up to about 4 or 5 o’clock and then after that, all routine just flew out the window. Dinner time at our house was more often anything but stress-free.
One reason is that my hubs is not real big on “routine”, but at least having some sort of plan in place for how you will prepare for, and clean up after dinner is so helpful in making the evening run as smoothly as possible.
From the post:
It’s been a long day. You’re tired, the kids are cranky, or needy, or fighting, or all three at once, the house looks like a tornado just passed through, and you look at the clock and it’s 5:00 pm and you think, “Oh NO! What are we going to have for dinner?”
What usually happens then, is something gets thrown together haphazardly, while the kids whine and cling to your leg. The stuff that’s covering the dinner table gets pushed out of the way so there is actually somewhere to sit and eat. After dinner, the dishes remain on the table because you jumped up and moved on to other things, and when you finally get the kids to bed, you walk out and look around your house and feel overwhelmed and exhausted.
