This is the best part of my day.

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!

Also the favorite part of my day. Though I love my kids there is just something about that time at the end of the day when you are exhausted and are just ready to have some time to yourself.
That bathtub is amazing! So jealous! You deserve it though, so enjoy and go get yourself a bottle of wine for tomorrow nights bath.

OMG - is that tub in your new apartment???? I absolutely love it! I'll trade you a dip in your tub for some cookies?????

I'm so glad you had a chance to relax! Sounds like you really needed some Mommy Time.

That used to be my favorite time of the day before we had to change my daughter's sleep schedule. Now she goes to be when we do. MY time is on the weekends early in the morning. Everyone else sleeps late and I get to do whatever I want!

I love the end of the day when it's yours.

Yours and only yours...

Oh torture. We don't have a bath at this house just a shower.

I'm starting to not feel sorry for you being holded up in a hotel room for all this time now that I see that major big perk! Heavenly.
