In today’s society, many families find they barely have enough time to get through the weekdays taking care of the numerous activities that need to be done. Children need to be dressed, fed and off to school or a baby sitters. Parents are either rushing around trying to get themselves dressed in between getting the kids ready or trying to pack up last minute things needed for the office. Depending on what activities are going on after school and work, more often than not, parents walk through the door with just enough time to whip up something fast and put it on the stove for dinner. After dinner usually consists of helping children with homework, catching up on things that may have fallen behind at the office, or just regular things like bathing the children, story time and taking a moment to relax before lying down for the night.
