09-08-15 A Quiet Evening

With Tim working most evenings now, I try to keep our nights pretty calm. No tv. No running around. We are all tired, so we eat dinner and then start our long bedtime routine. We use the bathroom, brush our teeth, read a few stories, sing a few songs, and say our prayers. Then we have hugs and kisses and the big kids fall asleep.

That leaves me with Baby E, who is rarely ready to go to bed. So we hang out watching Netflix and playing on the ground until he gets sleepy enough to go down. Tonight it took an hour. But now the house is quiet. Blessedly quiet. 

I could do dishes... Or laundry... But I'm not going to. Instead, I am going to draw a hot bath and grab a book. The dishes and laundry can wait!
