Chaos is the adjective that best describes our life right now. Crazy busy time at work for Justin + new job for me + begging favors to put childcare together for Riley = Chaos! It seems pretty fitting that Riley picked Hungry Hippos for an after dinner game tonight.
10 minutes of game time followed by cuddles will do more to help him have a better day at school tomorrow than any amount of lecturing, timeouts or punishments for his behaviors. The poor kid had his entire routine picked up and shaken around and then Gramma dropped him off for school this morning. He will settle in with our new normal but he doesn't like to make it too easy on any of us.
