Afternoons are the most routine of times in our home. With nap time,
quiet play time, the episode or two of My Little Pony that Cordelia is
allowed to watch, snack time, pick up time, Eric's return. Most weekdays
we do not deviate from this routine. There is something comforting for children about knowing what to expect. I suppose that is because much of childhood is lived at the whims of adult choices.
