My family is going stir crazy. We have a 3 year old and a 18 month old. In the summer time at night when my husband would get home from work we would play in the backyard or go for a walk, but in the winter we are just plain bored. We decided to cut out tv while the kids are awake so instead of my husband coming home and watching tv now he just gets on his laptop and does work stuff or surfs the internet. Not exactly what I had in mind for more family time. However, I am having a hard time coming up with anything really to do with them that my husband would also want to get involved in. When we could go outside he would swing them and play with them, but after working all day he doesn't really want to come home and play with kid toys inside all night and I don't really blame him. Is there anything more interesting that anyone has done with their little kids at night?
