  • I think it depends on how tired you are. I used this time to do some cleaning /tidying up, and some relaxation time. I also tried to get sleep in case mine woke early.

  • Lie on the couch and whimper… Seriously, we read books, or play scrabble, or watch DVDs, or do small jobs to get ahead for the next day.

  • I have a chat with my hub and teenagers and then go to bed before they do around 8.30-9.00pm !

  • I have a 3.5yr old and a 4 month old. When my 3.5yr old goes to bed, my baby is still awake and usually doesn’t settle until about 10, so honestly these days I just go to bed to sleep. While this baby is an awesome sleeper compared to my first, I still never know if I’m going to wake once or several times before my 3.5yr old gets me out of bed at 6:30am.
    But before bub was born, I’d do a quick tidy, netflix & chill with hubby, and shower in peace before heading to bed.

  • We usually sit down and catch up on whatever tv series we are currently watching

  • Usually I’ll watch tv or read.

  • Anything to wind down – a glass of wine, couch, tv or movie, computer surfing… Just relax as much as possible if everything else is done. I always find something around the house that needs to be done however…

  • Usually a glass of wine on the couch with hubby. Sometimes we watch a movie, or read, or chat with friends on the phone.

  • lately i have been doing something cool or as the young ones say “netflix and chill”

  • Usually I stay on the computer till late.

  • Watch my favourite show winners and losers, maybe read some of my book and shower before bed but if I have some left over energy I wash up or some other housework that needs doing.

  • I finish chores (dishes, washing bottles, put washing in dryer), once they’re done I do something for myself like reading, facebook, watch my fave tv show, paint my nails & of course eat a bit of chocolate :)

  • Or go to bed.

  • These posts sound all too familiar

  • I sit back relax and watch some tv of show I want to watch!
