Because my children didn't listen to me when I asked them not to jump on the bed. Because they ignored my instructions to stop screaming "yee-haw". Yes. I know. It's kind of funny now. I'm totally loving this mommy time at the end of the day. I don't have to watch Barney. The Backyardigans, or Dragon tales. I can watch a movie. Or CNN even.
And I can eat whatever I want without having to give the other half of it to them. I can be totally selfish.
I had to take a picture for the blog. Here they are after literally wearing themselves down into a peaceful sleep.
The only thing missing here is a nice bottle of red wine.PS.... This bathtub is really big. I'm 5'7" and with my legs outstretched, my toes just touched the end of the tub!
