how do your evenings go? (help!)
The past few weeks when we bring Lilah home from the sitter she just wants to veg out in front of the TV. That's been sort of ok with me because I need to nurse the baby at the same time and DH is getting dinner ready. But it's the only time I see her on work days. I've tried to get her to play, but she's not into it and is just in a funk. I also want her to take a bath some nights and she's just screaming at me the whole time I wash her hair, but she smells like hot sweaty kid.
I need some ideas. What can I do to circumvent these evening crankies? We get home around 5:45 pm and she wants to be glued to the TV until dinner time and then she goes off for her bedtime routine around 7:00 pm. I know she's worn out, but I also don't want her watching this much TV.
