The text message you had at 2pm with a cutesy picture of the baby and your partner saying she couldn’t wait to see you wasn’t some weird trick to enhance the impact of the she-devil you were greeted with when you walked in. The witching hours from 5pm are a breaking point for all mothers of young kids if it’s been a bad day. If you can avoid radio silence it helps. Even better, get home in time for the bath in those early months, and you will be her knight in shining armour. There’s also a high chance she’s hungry. Maybe come home armed with snacks and lob one through the letter box like a grenade two minutes before you come in.
