More often than not, I fall asleep right after the two boys go to bed at 9 pm. I try to stay awake and watch TV, but I DVR all of my favorite shows because I almost always fall asleep. My DD stays up later. I have to get up at 5:15, so I just can't seem to stay up late anymore.

I try to watch mindless TV, fill out more paperwork for school or to keep the kid's services continuing that I am always behind on.  Wait little one out, so I can go to sleep.

Unfortunately we have really spoiled our little one, she has to be held to go to sleep at night, so sometimes it's around 9:30 before we get to put her in bed.  Our older kids go to their rooms around 9:00, and we turn all the lights off, and watch TV, it's nice to just relax, and watch something other than a cartoon.  Then we go to bed at 10.

I try to clean up and get ready for the next day. Only problem is my three year old can outlast me on most nights. Luckily she just lays on the couch or in my bed and doesn't get into anything. It is the only time of day I can guarantee she will be good lol.

Pour a glass of wine and have adult conversation.... on the nights I don't follow them to bed lol

My sister is graduating from college and hopefully moving in with us so soon maybe my husband and I will actually be able to go out.  And it'll be nice to spend time with her.

Bed! Once Jacob gets his last feeding I put him down and I climb into my bed. I'm usually dragging and exhausted at that point. I rarely stay up longer.
