Ds now has basketball practice twice a week. On Friday's it's from 5:30 to 6:30 which isn't a problem but on Monday's it's from 7-8pm.

Mason starts getting really incredibly fussy around 7 and doesn't settle down until he falls asleep for the night around 8 or 8:30. During that time I have to sit with him and rock him and pat his butt constantly.

I usually watch ball practice. I don't normally just drop ds off and wait outside for him but I'll also have dd with me so I'm thinking it may be easier to drop him off and wait in my van with the other 2 kids. One of his coaches is a friend of ours and the other coach told me he knows how crazy things get here and he actually wouldn't mind picking my ds up and bringing him back home.

How would you handle this? Last week dh was home early enough that he took him. Today he may have to work late though. Sometimes MIL will keep the little ones while I take him- the school is only 5 minutes from my house, but right now MIL had a bad stomach virus go through her house last week and I'm just staying far, far away from there right now, just to be safe

I think I'd drop him off and then if you can get the coach or your dh to pick him up I would do that! That way it doesn't interrupt Mason's bedtime. Then maybe you can stay and watch him practice the other night of the week that practice isn't so late.
Thanks for my gorgeous siggy, Jaidynsmum!!!

I'd either take advantage of the offer from his coaches or do what Shannon suggested - drop him off yourself and let one of them bring him home. Mason is like Kolbie - at 7 p.m. if I'm not available to nurse her to sleep she gets angry! It's like she can tell time I swear. But yeah, I'd accept the offer of help on Monday nights.

Is it just me or does that seem crazy late for a kids' basketball practice? My bedtime was 8-8:30 until like high school!!

Yeah it is late to me but they go in age groups. 5/6 year olds practice first, then 7/8 year olds, then 9/10 year olds.

I agree with everyone else. We've had the same problem. It's hard enough when the older ones have daytime things that interrupt naps, but the nighttime stuff stinks! My 7 year old thankfully decided to switch to jazz instead of ballet after the first few classes, which meant Daddy would be home and we wouldn't have to drag the baby out to class from 6-7 (she's ready for bed at 6:30 most nights!)
