So when you kid(s) get home from daycare what do they usually do or do you do with them?
I collect DD 2.5years old about 4:30ish and she usually likes to have a snack and kick back and watch some ABC Kids and relax until dinner.
She is pretty worn out after a full day and it gives me a chance to get dinner organised.
She usually has dinner about 6pm (I eat later when DH gets home from work).
Just wondering what other peoples routines are

What do you kids do after a daycare day?

Pretty much the same but we all eat dinner together at 6pm.

Exactly the same (DD gets home about 3:30 though) she will have a snack, watch TV, and then have dinner around 5pm. She always seems totally pooped and often just wants a cuddle on the couch

We do dinner at 5 ish, bath at 6 and bed by 6.45pm. Both my kids get exhausted by daycare so it's early to bed.
Eta. We get home 4.45-5pm ish.

We are just vegging on the couch at the moment and I it struck me if I was being a lazy mum but DD just seems too tired to play after daycare, I don't blame her, I would be tired as well!

All going well, I usually collect DD at about 5.15 as I come straight from work- dinner at 530pm, wash, cuddle, bottle, bed at 6pm. On those 3 days a week, there isn't much time between pickup and bedtime.

I would pick DS up about 5pm so he would come home and play or watch tv while I'd get dinner ready. He'd have dinner then bath, quiet time and then bed or sometimes straight to bed after bath.

We get home anywhere from 5:15pm - 5:45pm - she watches ABC4Kids while we make dinner, trying to eat at 6pm, 6:15pm at the latest.
Sometimes she will get bored and come talk/play with us

I'm lucky that I can pick my kids up relatively early- around 3.30-4. On Mondays we always go for coffee and cake, Tuesdays mum or MIL picks them up and they sometimes go to the playground or play centre (they pick up even earlier than me- 2.30-3) and on Thursdays we go to the library. We're home by 5ish and then it's like PP's- they veg out and watch some tv while I cook dinner and they eat at around 5.30. Wednesdays and Fridays are generally pretty chilled out so they get a chance to recharge, and I like that I get to spend some time doing something fun with them before the madness of the evening routine. If either of them seems too tired we cut those outings very short, but if I tried to skip them entirely there would be hell to pay, lol.
