Will try this one. I've tried it all, TV, mandatory room time, mandatory outside in the back yard time(which proved detrimental to my roses)I've even barricaded myself in the kitchen. I feel that you have to mix it up for the most effect. ;-)

BTW: have you ever read the book "Llama, Llama Red Pajama"? It's my two year old's all-time favorite book.

mrs. brownstone -- thanks for dropping by! It is funny, isn't it? Even funnier when it's happening live!

laane -- you are wise to plan ahead. Sometimes I do this, and it is enormously helpful.

We call it here the tired time.

I try to prepare things for dinner earlier at the day, because I'm too tired then.

Thanks for sharing!

I just got the biggest kick out of this statement,

"And while the kids have no problem whacking each other while singing “Lord, I lift your name on high,” I find I’m less prone to resort to yelling and screaming when I’m singing praise choruses."

Thanks for the great tip - we've ALL been there - and thanks for the laugh, too!

marmot mom -- nothing wrong with Barney! We do plenty of TV, too, but it doesn't help with the whiny baby. I love the cereal for dinner idea! I might actually try that tomorrow night...

Hey, pork chops for breakfast, cherrios for dinner. :-)

2007-09-19T18:16:00.000-04:00

What a problem solver you are! Excellent idea!!! Back in the day, I took the secular route and turned on Barney while preparing dinner. Even to this day, when people make fun of Barney, I feel compelled to jump in and defend His Purpleness. ("Hey! Watch it! Maybe YOU think he's dumb, but he has provided ME with many, many happy half-hours!) I should also add I feel Dinnertime should be banned altogether because it comes at such a bad time of the day. Once, I (no lie) promised my family that I would cook myself into frenzy preparing a big hearty breakfast every morning, if they would only agree to a bowl of cereal for dinner each night. Sadly, they saw through my evil plan and just laughed...

2007-09-19T13:23:00.000-04:00

I do this too! I put the TV on the Sirius Classical station while I cook dinner; it really does calm the kids down so they're not in meltdown mode when Daddy walks in! He deserves a happy homecoming :)

Marcia -- um. Sort of.

Jenny -- Hilarious!

2007-09-19T13:09:00.000-04:00

Yes, you haven't lived until you've seen your children pulling one another's hair to "Blessed be the Name of the Lord." I am going to try this...I keep my worship songs in our car usually but I'm going to try to bring it in the house. Thanks.

2007-09-19T13:02:00.000-04:00

That is a great idea - exactly why I have a worship CD in my car to keep me calm during the traffic driving to and from work :)

Thanks for visiting - and you were joking about sweeping the bathroom, right?!

hey Craver!

Maybe you should join the Mommy Blogging World and add this as a tip! I'm sure you'd be a hit with everyone! ;-)

2007-09-19T10:33:00.000-04:00

Long story short: I once used duct tape on a very active little boy. No, I didn't tie him down! I made sleeves for his hands--sticky side out. Then showed him the game of touching his taped hands together and pulling them apart again. His dad was impressed.

2007-09-19T09:44:00.000-04:00

Sherry -- Great solution! We've usually used up our "screen time" allotment by this time in the day...sigh...plus it does nothing to keep the baby occupied.

Hey -- whatever gets you through this time of the day with your sanily intact...I'm for it!

2007-09-19T09:41:00.000-04:00

We call it 'bewitching' hour at our house. Our girls are not allowed to watch TV except between 5-6pm. This give me peace and quiet to layout dinner. (I work full time so I prepare dinner in early a.m. and need this time to wind down.)Since it is the only TV alllowed, I feel an hour is plenty. But maybe music would be better than cartoons--will give it a try tonight!

Thanks for stopping by, Nettie! Honestly, sometimes this mellows the kids out, but more importantly -- it mellows ME out!

2007-09-19T09:14:00.000-04:00

This is a great idea! Our house can get pretty loud during that time, especially since we often have a few neighbor kids over at that time. Maybe everyone would be just a bit more mellow...
