Can someone please explain to me why children become hyper active in the evening and I become hypo-inactive (if that is such a word.)
Well, Mr. B and Mrs. B outsmarted them this time!!
While playing a game of Crazy Eights with Max (age 10) and Isaac (age 6) Mr. and Mrs. B started to wind down. Not so with the boys. They began to wind up and the silliness side of them kicked in. Realizing they were not into card playing I subtly suggested (okay I admit it was really more of a demand) that we walk over to the track and do a lap. They thought that was a great idea. We walked, they ran and walked and walked and ran. When we returned home I subtly suggested that the boys do tricks on the trampoline while Mr. and Mrs. B cheered them on. They love an audience! So we watched until 8:45 as they flipped, turned and bounced. At 9:00 pm both boys were tired and ready for bed.
