The 7pm Crazies

Every night, at 7pm, the Monster begins her transformation. She's usually a sweet girl who is eager to tell us about her day, spends time drawing pictures and working on her alphabet, maybe even quietly watches television as she snacks. But then as soon the clock strikes 7pm, something switches and she becomes the biggest pain ever. It's like Cinderella but totally opposite.

The Monster will just start running crazy through house, jumping and doing backflips off the couches. It's like our living room suddenly turned into a parkour course. She will strip down and throw her toys everywhere, make it rain with her bowl of rice. I don't know what happens but she just starts going crazy. It's like all her energy is built up for that one very moment and it becomes unleashed on everyone in the house.

The Wifey has started incorporating Kid's Yoga before she goes to bed and it seems to work for the most part. But going to bed is still a pain as the Monster still finds a way to annoy the hell out of us.

But despite all her craziness she's still just a kid. I have now mentally prepared myself when the clock gets closer to 7pm.
