What do parents do when baby finally goes to sleep

When the cats away, the mice will play!

That's what I say to myself all day anyway. I love my son but I'm not going to lie, I look forward to 7.30 when I can finally pee on my own! I usually plan to be really productive and get tons done. Does that happen? No!

Clean up

So you've been sitting in a sea of fisher price toys all evening and you're sitting room looks like a sad
playschool. You have 2 options;

  1. Continue to sit in the pile of toys as they randomly start asking you if you know your ABCs throughout an episode of Breaking bad.
  2. Pile everything into one corner and hide it away. Basically, make its some what organised. Do not touch it after this, for risk of one of them bad boys signing a nursery rhyme.

Eat ALL of the bad food

Whether you have a small baby and just want to eat in peace or a toddler that insists on eating whatever you eat, now is the time to take out the food that is too good for their little unappreciative taste buds and gorge.

(Yes, this does include wine!)

Watch Netflix. And some more.

Supposedly it's frowned upon to let your baby watch Game of Thrones, so I have to wait for 7.30 to roll around before I get to begin watching as many as I can fit in and probably 3 more. Literally, Netflix and chill...Parent style!

Wash themselves

This probably sounds worse than what its actually is. I honestly can't remember the last time I had a shower while it was bright out. It's now a luxury and absolutely not a priority according to my son after he pees, spits up and wipes yogurt on my face.

Attempt to be extremely quite and argue if either parent even breaths too loadly

I just can't whisper. Not properly anyway. My version of whispering is probably loader than my normal voice. This drives my partner cray cray but I can't help it. 

Miss the baby

So, you miss the baby so much you actually want to go and wake him up. You both agree this is a bad idea but instead do nothing but talk about the baby (is this even normal?).

They say, you know you're a good parent if it comes to the end of the day and you have absolutely nothing left to give. And yeah, in a way I agree with that but I also take it as a pinch of salt. I think we all need our 'Me Time' and the evening are when I choose to relax and rejuvenate. I can honestly say, I wouldn't be the Mum I am without that time in the evenings!

How do you spend you're evenings? I'd love to know!
