Once our kids started school, I quickly realized that time together during the week was going to be VERY limited.
They don't get home until 3:30 pm here -- and of course there are days when afterschool activities take place, plus homework, dinner prep, gathering things for the next day and bath or shower.
Which leaves a small window of opportunity to touch base and see how life's going for everyone.
And that time to connect is so important!
But yet, asking them "So, how was your day?" is usually met with "Fine." or in our case "It was schooly."
Yes, my kids resort to making up new words to throw me off :)
I'm on to their tricks and have a few of my own to get them talking and turn a somewhat boring afternoon into an AWESOME time to connect!
