    For the encore, we’ll have the classic “Pretend to be Quiet for 25 Minutes and THEN Creep Out of Bed to Ask for Water.”

    This literally made me laugh out loud–my 3 year old has been doing this lately! (I am very heartened to see other mom chiming in that their kiddos are, too!) Our rule is that she gets dinner and a cookie, and if she doesn’t eat all her dinner it’s the only thing she gets, but she can eat it whenever (it’s always something she likes well enough.) Last night, she got up at 9pm saying she was hungry, and finished her peas, butternut squash ravioli, and turkey before heading back to bed!

  6. YES! This exact thing happens all the time in my house.

  7. Ramona says...

    Yay! Love Friday cartoons! ;)

  8. LR says...

    Yup. Me too. Every night suddenly needing a peanut butter and jam sandwich at the 11th hour. Sometimes literally the 11th hour, sigh.

  9. Rachel says...

    We love Grace!

    Oh my goodness, so true! My mom always called it the “Arsenic Hour.” At our house, we combat the arsenic/ witching hour with advice I learned from a comment on COJ: Just add water – a glass of water, a shower, a bath, play with water in the sink. 90% of problems with cranky kids can be solved with this little piece of advice. Right about 5 pm every day, I get my kid into the bath or shower. It washes the cranky down the drain.

      I have taken this advice on too! Beach, bath, shower, “do the dishes”…I also think it works for adults…especially the beach one but I’m sure a bath is a nice substitute!

    • Laura C. says...

      I do apply this “water rule” too since I read it here! :D

  11. Anna Vitale says...

    SAME!!!! LOL

  12. Sam says...

    Wow! Just read more about Grace and she’s a very inspiring woman! Thanks for showcasing her!

  13. laurel hammond says...

    We will encore with a crowd favorite… “I need WATER!”

    • Helen says...

      LOL

  14. shade says...

    Yep, same!

  15. My youngest son is 8, and we are still dealing with the witching hour! My husband and I joke that our little guy is Randy from A Christmas Story, especially when Ralph announces, “Every family has a kid who won’t eat.”

    EVERY SINGLE NIGHT.

    • Joanna Goddard says...

      hahaha same!

    • Michelle A says...

      YES!

    This is so timely and has been my exact life every night for the past two weeks!
