Confessions of Lazy Evenings

When I thought of my evenings as a family woman I pictured eating dinner as a family, giving my kids a bath, supervising as they brush and get into jammies. Then reading them a story, tucking them in with kisses and finally enjoying a glass of wine while Hillary and I read the book of the moment before going to bed.

And actually, it's not too far from that. A little messier than I envisioned, but it makes me happy.

But I have to admit I LOVE when B skips his afternoon nap and is so tired by 5 that we feed him early and he's down for the night by 6:45.

Those nights we make a grown up dinner and eat it on the couch in front of a movie.

Tonight it's red wine with pesto pasta and Super Troopers.

Love these nights, even if it's not quite what I always pictured.
