One of the fascinating observations Lee and I have recently made is that our children undergo a transformation when they have their pajamas on. All of a sudden, they work much harder at resolving conflict on their own, and they play together better than at any other time of the day. We think it’s because they realize it’s hard for us to send them to bed when they are happily playing, but will send them to bed fairly quickly if they are fighting.
If you come over to visit, and the children have their pajamas on at, say, three o’clock, you’ll know why. 😀
