It starts at 8pm. The whining, water & snack craving, scared-of-the-dark wailing, tantrum throwing, I-need-my-blankie stalling, bed-snatching creatures of the night creep out from behind once-angelic faces. This is what night life with 4 tiny children-turned-monsters is for us. Bedtime at the Lyro household often resembles a scene out of Gremlins and illicites maniacal behavior from all parties involved. The beasts' father and I have designed a routine to meet the extreme demands of our "highly spirited and passionate" spawn. We strongly suggest this bedtime routine for all parents with bedtime beasts to tame.
Ok, I'm shooting it to you straight here. My house is the source of a ridiculous amount of noise and chaos. If you're wondering how I "do it all", the short answer is I don't. I don't even do half of "it all". So when my 4 kids have driven me to my last level of sanity, the dishes are overflowing in the sink, and my laundry hasn't been touched in a week, I desperately search for ways to increase the calm and get stuff done. My lavender-infused DIY play-dough recipe is a result of desperate times calling for desperate measures :) If you're a terrible cook and an even worse baker, this recipe is for you!!
