5:30pm to 8pm seems to be the most challenging part of our day. I'm curious how you other working mom's handle this tough period every day.
I pick up DD from daycare at about 5:30pm and get home shortly after. I *attempt* to make dinner for myself, shower and keep her from having a cranky meltdown before bed. She's usually ready for us to start bedtime by 6:30. My husband works late and is never home to help at this hour. I shower at night so that I can get more sleep in the morning and usually can't do it after she goes down because the shower pipes are right next to her room and it wakes her. I feel like there is a very short window in which to get all this done while still trying to enjoy my home time with baby. Any tricks/tips? How do you all do it?
