Welcome to the typical American family on a weekday evening.
Honey, I’m home!
I just left the office 23 minutes ago, my boss was a total jerk today, traffic was a nightmare, I am two days behind on a project due next week, but I am home and all here, Honey.
Yeah, right. Give me a break.
Sitting in my counselor’s office recently, the topic of coming home routines came up. I’d mentioned an event from the week prior that will have a lasting positive effect on my family.
