routine? what routine??
on dh's worknights, i play with the kids until 6 or 6:30 then put a video on and give them food which they may or may not eat while i throw something together for myself and try to eat it before ds starts climbing on me to nurse. then more play until dh gets home at 7:45 and i try to clean up a bit or put some food together for him if he's hungry. dd gets tired and wants to go to bed by 8 or 8:30, which involves reading several books first. she usually wants me to do this but ds wants to nurse so dh takes him to the playroom and plays with him while i get dd down (if dh reads dd to sleep, he *always* falls asleep with her), then i nurse ds down, if we're lucky he's asleep by 9 or 9:30, if we're not, it's an hour later (depends on how long he naps during the day, i think.) dh usually falls asleep before i can get ds down, so then i get online and hang here before crashing by 10:30, if i'm smart, much later if i'm not!
on night's when he's at home, we try to get a real dinner cooked and we try to eat it together. neither thing happens with any consistency. the rest of the evening is similar.
oh, the kids do sleep in til 7:30 to 8:30, so i suppose that's a bit of a trade off for the late nights...
