We sometimes play a game, like Scrabble or cribbage and eat popcorn and talk about the day. Since we're family bedders, we also sometimes use this time in the evening to be intimate. Or, we work on house projects together that didn't get addressed during the day, like folding clothes or putting away dishes, or sometimes one of us zones out on the computer while the other reads or takes a bath or whatever. We usually go to bed early around here, though, by 10:30 at the latest.
We do sometimes watch a movie via Netflix, but it's rare these days. I do sort of miss movie night, but I did end up feeling like a vegetable when that's all we did after babe went to bed. Not enough talking/connecting was going on.
Married to P and mama to DS (1/09)and DD (09/13 ). I'm into friends and family, gardening, exercise, yoga, reading, knitting, photos, traditional foods, breastfeeding, home birth, babywearing, and much more.
